After the euthanasia, Dr. Sernik makes ink paw prints and a clay paw print of your pet.  The clay prints are personalized with your pet's name and dates, baked, and then hand painted.  Many pet owners appreciate having this tangible memento to remember their pet by.  Please be patient as it takes some time to create these.  You should receive your pet's clay print in about eight weeks. Note: If you are planning to have a tattoo made from the ink prints, please let Dr. Sernik know when she is at your house so that she can make extra ones for your artist to work with.
