High up in the courts of Heaven today, A little dog-angel waits, With the other dogs he will not play, But he sits alone at the Gates: "For I know my master will come," says he “And when he comes, he will call for me."
How will it be to get up in the morning to find the dog bed that you had made for your canine roommate vacant? You will search for it on the bed, under your bed sheet all in vain only to realize that he was already cremated and is no longer there. It is not easy to come to terms with the fact that your beloved pet is dead. Though you know that pets have relatively shorter life, you feel bereaved at the sudden loss of your animal companion, which spoke through its gestures. However, if you had considered him as a part of your family or something more than that, you will be honoring your pet’s memory by giving it a proper cremation. Check out information on how to go about pet cremation.
How To Go About Pet Cremation
- It is common that you consider your pet as your close relative and want it to be buried like human beings. However, for burying your pet at your yard you may have to follow some strict health department rules and pet cemeteries that you can find, might be either far or expensive. So pet cremation is the best possible option that you can go for. Here pets of any sizes can be cremated, from birds to horses.
- Talk to your vet about the cremation. He/she will be well aware of the crematoriums around your place and he/she can guide you on that. Some even have crematoriums at their office.
- Select the best crematorium. You can find many online yourself. There are special crematoriums that have special pet cemeteries and scattering gardens as well as mausoleums and funeral services for pets.
- You can choose the cremation type. Private pet cremation though is a little expensive; it ensures that your pet is cremated alone. You will get the remains of your pet as well if you opt for individual cremation. However, if you choose mass cremation your pet will be cremated along with other deceased pets and you will not get any remains.
- If you have gone for an individual cremation, you will get the ashes. Collect your pet’s ashes. Try to get the ashes well placed in an urn. You will also get a special keepsake certificate as well.
- You can scatter the ashes in your yard or any favorite place of your pet in the yard. If you wish, you can also keep it well placed in an urn and carry it with you as an honor to your favorite pet.
