How to Choose the Right Pet Urn

Guardian & Wreath Bronze Cremation Urn

It’s never easy to say goodbye to a beloved pet, but when the time comes, you might want to consider cremation and choosing a pet urn to hold your dog’s or cat’s ashes as a permanent memorial of the animal that brought so much love and happiness into your life. Many owners are choosing this option today because not only is a better way to return your pet’s remains to the earth, but because it gives them the choice of preserving the ashes as well. If you are considering a pet urn for your deceased animal, there are a few things you should know first.

Today’s urns are not like the traditional urns of old—they now come in a wide variety of shapes, styles and are built out of a number of different materials, such as wood, stone, marble, glass, and metal. In most cases, photos of your pet or engraving of its name can be placed on them so that your urn is not only beautiful, but also a unique representation of your pet. The style and construction will be up to you, but keep in mind that you will have to buy the right size, so ask your veterinarian to weigh your pet before the cremation process.

If you plan on using the urn to inter your pet’s ashes, then you should consider a biodegradable model. These urns are made of treated tree bark, wood, and cornstarch so that they break down naturally when they’re buried. There is no safer way to return your pet’s remains to the earth, and this is especially a wonderful choice if you plan to bury the urn in your garden, where your pet will live on forever in the form of flowers and trees. No matter what kind of urn you choose for your pet, it is a wonderful way to honor your furry friend and to let everyone know how much you care.
