The Loss of a Pet
There are many people that cannot understand the bond that pet owners have with their pets. When death occurs, there are many that will experience extremely powerful grieving emotions for their lost pet. Family and friends may not fully understand the important role that your pet played, which means that you need to find someone that can fully understand the effect that a pet has on a person’s life.
A pet death causes grief and sadness; however, pet owners must still decide how they will handle the body of their pet. There are several options to choose from:
* Allow the clinic or office where the pet was euthanized dispose of the remains;
* Bury the pet;
* Cremate the pet.
Home burial is a very popular choice, if you have the space and land to allow. This is an economical option that will enable you to design a personal funeral ceremony at minimal cost. This option will also allow you continue to visit your pet, helping you deal with the loss and grief process.
Much like when a human dies, a pet death can lead an owner through the grieving process. They may experience all of the emotions, which includes guilt, denial, anger and depression. Much like a funeral provides you with closure for the death of a human, it can provide the same sense of closure for your pet.
The Benefits of Pet Cremation
While the option for pet cremation can be difficult for some pet owners, it is an option that offers a number of choices, and provides a sense of closure for the pet owner.
Cremation is a more costly option than burying the animal in your yard, the choice is appealing for many pet owners. There is an option to save money with group cremations, which is when the pet owner does not want the ashes returned. However, if you do want the ashes returned, you can opt for that, as well for a higher charge.
When you have the ashes of your pet returned, it can allow you to display them somewhere in your home. This offers a type of emotional closure for pet owners that other final methods do not.
With this information, you can begin to wade through the grief process, ensuring that your pet receives the final treatment that it deserves. Additionally, you will be able to obtain that sense of closure that this type of treatment provides.
