Dog And Cat Urns Choices

By Sachin Gupta

Anyone that has owned a dog or cat knows how important he or she is to the family. They liven up a room, keep you company on a lonely night, comfort you in times of sorrow, and your constant confidant for many years. When the pet passes away, you go through a grieving process just as you would if you lost a person you were close to and missed. Deciding to have your pet cremated is only half the decision; you must have a suitable urn.

Picking out Your Pet Urn Based on Your Budget

If possible, you should choose the cremation urns before your pet passes away. The main reasoning behind this is many veterinarians only offer one or possibly two choices, which may or may not be suitable for you.

There are several varieties of discount pet urns that you can find online, and you have a larger selection to choose. When you are on a budget, the wooden pet urns will be your cheapest option, but they are still very beautiful and something you will be proud to display.

Those that have a mid to higher budget, obviously have several other options including glass urns, ceramic, stone, and many unique pet urns. Although, any urn you select, will be beautiful, regardless of how much it cost.

Engraving Plates and Plaques

There is an option that allows you to have an engraved plaque or plate especially to place on the pet urn. You can think of these much like a headstone in a graveyard; it is your final thoughts to your pet and you can add the years he or she lived.

Where to Place Your Pet Urn When You Get Home

When the time comes and your pet passes, your veterinarian will arrange to have him or her cremated, and you can leave your urn that you chose earlier with them. Once the pet has been cremated, and the remains placed in the urn, the veterinarian will call to let you know you can pick it up.

Where you place your pet’s urn is up to you. Some people choose to place the urn on the mantle above the fireplace. Other people have a distinctive small table in the home that is dedicated to the pet and the urn is set on the table. Regardless of where you place your pet’s urn, it can be a source of immense comfort during your initial grieving period.

As time goes on, and even if you get another pet, you will always have your pet’s urn with you as a reminder of your bond and the love you shared.

Final Thoughts

Giving your pet the very best you can afford when they pass away, is possibly more for you than the pet, but it is a way to help you heal from your loss and honor your pet, one last time. is build specially for those who are looking for special ways to memorialize their beloved pets. Here you can choose from a variety of products such as wooden pet urns, ceremation urns, caskets, pet memorials, and other sympathy gifts.
