Pets bring so much comfort, support, and unconditional love that they are considered chosen family by many. You share a unique and unexplainable connection with them that’s often difficult to come by from other people. This is why losing them can cause a pet parent a devastating heartbreak.
If you know someone who has recently lost their pet, we recommend sending them thoughtful sympathy flowers. Although they are in no way a cure-all for everything we go through, including grief, study shows they can positively affect recipients’ emotions, easing loneliness and symptoms of depression and instantly uplifting their moods. Sending flowers is a thoughtful and tactful way of saying, “I know I cannot fix things and make you feel better, but I am here for you if you need anything.”
What Flowers to Use for Sympathy Floral Arrangements for Loss of a Pet
Traditionally, sympathy flowers are expected to be white, a classic choice that will never go out of style. However, if you want to cheer up a grieving friend or make them remember their pet in a fun and lighthearted way, you can also go for colorful florals.
