Get Well Soon Messages for a Pet (Dog, Cat, Rabbit, Guinea Pigs, etc)

Sending Get Well Soon Messages to a Pet may sound kind of crazy for most people, but if you understand that our pets are just more than animals, then you’ll see reasons why most people can take the stress of writing a get well message to a pet.

Pets ain’t just animals for me, they are family members, and they are also as important as the other of our loved ones. Almost all pet owners are usually not happy when their pets go through some physical pains or some illness of some sort. And, I think that’s actually the best time to write them a get well message for their pet.

I believe every pet owner will definitely appreciate the such kind gesture and emotional support that your message for their sick pet provides them.

What Not to Write in a Pet’s Get-Well Card

There are some things that may offend or otherwise be inappropriate to include in a pet’s get-well message. Here are a few:

  1. Do not minimize the importance of the pet. Writing something like, “Hey, look on the bright side—maybe you’ll get to get a new puppy soon after this one dies!” is insensitive.
  2. Never compare the pet to your own pet. Your pet is different. The fact that your pet went through something similar is not necessarily comforting. Focus the message on the pet that is currently ill or injured.
  3. Never mention any negative qualities of the pet. Even if the owner has talked negatively about the pet in the past, there’s no reason to bring it up. Many people complain about some quirk that their mom has, but that is not an invitation for others to talk about their mom. If the pet is ill, assume it’s the best pet the person could ever have.
  4. Never make a suggestion to euthanize the pet. Saying things like, “I think it may be time to put him down” is not smart. The owner can ask you for that advice when he or she needs it.
