When the time comes to say goodbye to a family companion–whether that friend be a dog or cat, horse, or other long-term companion–you will find you have a broad array of choices of companion urns if you should choose to keep the cremated remains of your pet close by. Your veterinarian can assist with the cremation itself, and even provide suggestions about local sources for affordable pet urns. You will also find a wide variety of affordable pet urns available online, ensuring that you can select a resting place for your pet that suitably reflects your feelings for that companion, and your memories.
Companion urns take many shapes, from the more traditional vase shapes made of ceramic, marble, onyx, bronze, pewter, or other materials, to memento boxes with provisions for framed photos. Some of the more creative forms of companion urns include personalized jewelry, which can be crafted to incorporate a small portion of your pet’s cremated ashes in the jewelry itself, and which you can always wear close to your heart in memory of your companion. Other specialized variations include artistic pieces like a bronzed statuary horse head, mounted on a base which can accommodate the ashes of a beloved equine companion. Affordable pet urns can be personalized with engravings, carvings, medallions, photos, or a space to store mementos and keepsakes from your time with your companion. However you choose to enshrine your pet and keep that companion close by you after your loss, the choice of a suitable companion urn can be a helpful part of your grieving process.
