As pets become more and more like family members, what happens when they die, and to what lengths will owners go to keep their deceased pets forever?
Exploring dimensions of grief experienced by people over the loss of a pet, FUREVER looks at how our evolving relationship with animals has altered the veterinary and death care industries. We’re introduced to practices like modern mummification in Utah and cloning in Los Angeles, and taken to a pet death care conferences in Las Vegas.
While pet owners go to extraordinary lengths in preserving the memory of their deceased animal, FUREVER features interviews with grieving pet owners, veterinarians, psychologists, sociologists, religious scholars, neuroscientists and taxidermists. A look at how pets went from being outside the house to inside our beds, Furever shows us the great lengths pet owners will go to keep their companions alive in their hearts.
