Guidance on Gifting Pawprint Impression Kits as Condolence
No matter how hard you try to prepare your clients, no one can truly be prepared to lose their pet. Whether it be due to old age, a terminal illness or a sudden death, pet loss can be tragic and heartbreaking. As a vet, can help your clients cope with this grief in many ways, including the gift of a Pawprint Impression Kit.
When to Offer a Pawprint Kit
Depending on the person, grief can be experienced very differently so it's important to remain sensitive to your client's emotions. However, in most cases, grieving clients find relief in the opportunity to memorialize their beloved furry friend. Here are some examples of when it might be appropriate to gift a pawprint kit:
Immediately After a Recent Death: Show your condolences and aid clients in coping with the immediate pain that follows after the death of a pet.
Give Them Some Time: It may be too overwhelming for some clients to receive a pawprint kit immediately. They may need more time to process their emotions and feel ready for a pawprint kit.
During a Terminal Illness: This can help prepare a client for losing their pet while creating a memory they can keep forever.
