Loss Of Pet

When a friend or family member loses a pet, it can be difficult to find the right words. This is a natural reaction—many people struggle to express their sympathy or worry about saying the wrong thing. To help you write a poignant and meaningful message on the certificate for your pet loss gift tree, we’ve provided some inspiration for what to write in a pet sympathy message below.

Tree Certificates for the Loss of a Pet

Losing someone we love is the hardest thing we’ll ever face, and for most pet lovers, losing a pet is no different. In fact, sometimes it is even harder. Given this, coming up with the right wording for a pet sympathy message is not any different from a sympathy message you’d write when someone you know loses their human friend or family member. You can use some of the same sympathy messages from our In Memory Of page, knowing they’re just as appropriate to share for a pet loss, but below are a few that are more pet-specific:

  • {Pet’s name} sure was lucky to have you in {his/her} life.
