Cremation for a loved pet
When it’s time to say goodbye to your pet, it can be tough. But you can go to a Cremation Service and hopefully find helpful kindness from your pet care provider. Your pet care provider should walk you through the process of cremation with support and respect.
Losing a pet can be just as painful as losing any loved one, even a human. The grieving process can be similar for both, but regarding burials or cremations, there’s quite a difference. Human cremations are very common, and until recently, pet cremations were not that common. They are becoming more popular now, though, and there’s a wider variety of options than ever before.
Do you want your pet picked up?
When your pet has passed away, regardless of how expected or unexpected, it’s tough to decide whether to transport the body yourself or to have someone pick up the body. The body must be carried to the funeral home or cremation parlor, and it can be hard to do it yourself, considering the emotions you’ll most likely be experiencing. If you choose to have someone from the cremation service pick up the body, there will be a pickup fee, but this may be preferable to handling it yourself.
Memorial service or not?
Just like humans, your pet was a member of the family. If you want a memorial service, there’s no reason not to. How large or lavish the service is is up to you. Most pets do not have funerals, and because of this, there’s greater cost, but it’s still completely up to you.
Individual or Communal Cremation?
Now this is where you can save a lot of money. Cremations can cost any amount, depending on a sliding scale of how large or small your pet was. If you had a giant dog, you’d end up paying a lot. If you had a tiny cat, you’d pay far less. If you end up having to pay more, decide to choose a communal cremation rather than an individual one. Communal cremations are where your pet, as well as several others, are cremated at the same time. The ashes end up being composed of several pets, which might not be acceptable to you, but it saves quite a bit of money.
Viewing the cremation?
There’s an extra cost regarding seeing cremations. This is an option, as some want to see the cremation process and see their beloved pet one last time before it’s in an urn, but remember it costs extra.
Purchasing an urn?
When the cremation is finally over, you’ll be given the ashes in a container, probably a box or a bag. There are jars available for purchase at the funeral home, but you can also purchase one online or somewhere else. Look for one that suits your pet and your tastes, as well as one in your price range.
Hopefully, all of these options we explored, help you decide what you want regarding your pet’s cremation service. This is a difficult time, but you’ll be able to make it through.
