One of the hardest parts of life is losing a beloved pet. The pain felt during this difficult time can be so devastating that many have said it is equally as painful to losing a person. After all, pets have become our family members. They provide unconditional love and support during some of life’s most difficult moments.
There is nothing like coming home after a very long and stressful day to the companionship of an animal. Sometimes all it takes is just their presence to take away life’s everyday stresses. So when the unbearable time comes when we must say goodbye to our companions, we often grieve to the same extent as when a person in our life passes away. We often turn to other pet lovers and owners who can understand our hurt and pain.
Over the past several years, sympathy cards have become more and more popular for pet loss. What better way to express our condolences to our loved ones during their difficult time than by sending a sympathy card. Sometimes a few thoughtful words can help the person grieving feel comforted. Unfortunately, I have been there a few times, and I can recall receiving a pet loss sympathy card. It has always helped me through those difficult times. All it takes is a few minutes to show someone how much you care, especially when they suffer the loss of their furry companion.

This is such a great point. I can’t imagine losing my pet, and people sometimes underestimate the pain of this type of loss. Most of us see our pets just as any member of our family.
Very sad topic. Do you make cards specific for this?
So true! When my beloved dog passed away, my Vet sent a sympathy card and it truly meant so much to me.
I am a veterinary and I can’t imagine not sending a sympathy card for the loss of a pet. I think pet owners understand the importance of having support during such a time.
The pain of losing a pet is just as real as losing a loved one. Receiving a sympathy card is comforting knowing others acknowledge your loss and understand the depth of your feelings.
Losing a pet is as tragic as losing a loved one (human). They provide companionship through thick and thin, and the loss is devastating. A sympathy card is appropriate and warranted and I am sure, very much appreciated!
Can’t say I’ve ever sent or received a card for this topic. Not really something I ever looked for.
Thank you for the suggestion. I hadn’t thought about it, but it is a touching way to show you care. Sometimes we don’t know what to do or say when we see our loved ones losing their loving pet.
Thank you Gallery Collection for now selling Pet Sympathy Cards. Thank you! I just received my order of Angel Wings Pet Sympathy cards. We added the name of our practice on the front and they came out perfect!
