Home Blog Pet Cremation Allows You to Honor a Beloved Pet for the Rest of your Days

pet cremationDealing with the recent loss of a beloved pet is an unfortunate tragedy that all pet owners experience at some point in their life. Today, many pet owners choose to have their pet’s remains cremated.

In the past 10 years, pet cremation has become more common for all types and sizes of animals. Once your pet is cremated, the cremains can be returned to you. Those who get them back typically place the ashes in a special urn, spread them in the departed pet’s favorite outdoor place, or bury them in their backyard.

Your veterinarian will likely have a relationship with a pet crematory and can assist in arranging your pet cremation. The process involves extreme heat and evaporation in the chamber. This leaves the body’s basic elements with a rough texture of sand and small pebbles. The cremains are then returned in a heavy plastic bag and usually inside a disposable metal or cardboard container. If transferring your pet’s cremains to a more permanent urn will be too emotional for you, your veterinarian can help take care of this process.

Many people discover that pet cremation allows them to keep their pet as part of their household—either in a special urn indoors or in the back yard. And often, this helps them with their grief and leaves them with a sense that their pet’s spirit remains with them.

If it appears that your pet may be approaching his or her final days, and you are interested in memorializing them, talk with your veterinarian. The vet’s experience can give you greater control in handling the end of your pet’s life, as well as help you manage the grief that will follow.
