When that happened to us years ago, the extraordinary BNOTB ladies here sent us a basket of cookies and flowers, which was a very sweet gesture that we certainly weren't expecting.
I have sent a card to someone before, they actually do have pet-loss cards in our stores here.
My mom lost one of her furbabies last year and I ordered a hand-painted ornament from Etsy that had a painting of her dog (from a photo I emailed to the Etsy seller) and had her name on it, with a message about leaving pawprints on our hearts (or something like that). It was a "rainbow bridge" type ornament listing on Etsy, but they had a lot of other things like that without being a Christmas ornament, if you want some ideas. Of course, it may take over a week to get something like that, but it would still be pretty special to her if it was personalized for her pup.
Sorry she had to deal with that, it's so hard losing a pet suddenly and unexpectedly.
When our boy passed away and I was hysterical, I honestly didn't want to see or talk to anyone but MH. All of the cards I received really touched me though. I would suggest a card with something very heartfelt written inside.
