Someone has been listening to the many voices of pet owners here in Lanzarote, and we now finally have a crematorium for our furbabies! I know this is quite a sad subject, but an important one too. I for one, would love to be able to make my kitties’ passing as loving and luxurious as all the things that I have given them in life.
Pet owners in Lanzarote who lost a beloved pet, have had until now no option to give their deceased pet a decent and dignified send-off. If your pet died at the vets or was found dead in the road, it will be sent to the municipal animal crematorium in Arrecife and chucked in with all the other animals, including roadkill and leftover carcasses from slaughter houses. To a loving pet owner, this is very non-personal and quite horrible really. If you have a garden, then sometimes burial is possible, but many of us live in apartments, and some of us go and find a secluded spot in the country to do a discrete burial – both options are, however, illegal.
Hela Pet Crematorium is in Arrecife, and their cremation service (based on a 5kg animal), including one of their very sweet basic urns, costs around €75, so is very affordable to most people.
Having two 18 year old tabby boys makes me aware every day that their clocks are ticking and we don’t have that much time left together, and I am glad that when the time comes, I now have the option to see them off to the Rainbow Bridge with the dignity the deserve…
I wrote an article on Canna-Pet’s natural cannabinoids in September 2016, documenting how they helped my boy Spider with his ear tumour and kidney disease, and thought I’d write an update on how he is doing now.
Spider has taken Canna-Pet capsules for a year now, and the adenocarcinoma that our vet excised from his ear a year ago has shown no signs of growing back, even though we were told that it “might be back in a year or so”. On testing his kidneys, his values have actually improved, which is something of a miracle in a cat that has been in kidney failure since March 2015! I think this is in part due to him taking Canna-Pet, but will probably also be helped by a supplement called Renafood that I give him once a day.
Since on Canna-Pet, Spider has become more active again – behaving like a much younger cat! See the video below of him jumping after his favourite toy, the ping pong ball. 🙂
Spider’s fur has also become so very soft, he is much more cuddly and vocal with me than ever, and the loud crying fits in the middle of the night happen only occasionally now.
In conclusion, I am very pleased with the results, and would recommend Canna-Pet to anyone who is desperate to find something that works, where nothing has helped before, to give their cats or dogs that are suffering from cancer, diabetes, allergies, anxiety or as pain relief, to name just a few.
