Many people live alone but have the companionship of a pet. Looking after a pet can sometimes become a problem because of cancer and its treatment. This can be a very distressing time. You may need to plan to make sure your pet is looked after.
You may be worried if you:
- are struggling to look after your pet
- are no longer able to look after your pet
- have to go into hospital for a time
- have to move into a nursing or residential home
- do not know who will look after your pet if you die.
