After a pet has died and the client requests the body to take home, we place the pet in a decorative pillow sham with a cardboard insert and a disposable puppy pad. The pillow shams can be purchased inexpensively at sales or secondhand stores. We tie the package with a ribbon and include a sympathy card for the client. This works well for small pets, and the clients appreciate the gesture.
