Dealing with Pet Loss

Dog, Shar Pei, Black - Figurine Pet Cremation Urn

Processing the death of a pet is very difficult, something some people do not understand. This is especially true if your dog, cat or horse has been a part of the family for many years. So how do you work through the process of pet loss? Moreover, how should you deal with their remains?


The grief process for losing a family pet is not much different from losing a loved one. Denial, anger and bargaining are all a part of the process but in the end you want to come to acceptance and healing. Funerals or memorials are a good way to achieve this goal, however not everyone wants to start their own personal pet cemetery. This is where cremation and a decorative dog urn for ashes can become a part of your process.

Final Thoughts

No one wants to deal with the loss of a beloved pet, whether it is a dog, cat, horse or even a potbellied pig! However, eventually (if you have pets) you will have to deal with the loss of your furry best friend. Domesticated pets have a much shorter lifespan than their human owners to do.
