Answering FAQs About Pet Cremation

No matter the circumstances, losing a pet is an emotionally difficult time for you and your family. As you cope emotionally with your loss, you also have to decide what to do with your pet’s remains. While pet memorial is an option, you may also want to consider pet cremation in Arlington, TX.

What are your cremation options?

Many vets offer individual, group and communal cremations. If you choose individual pet cremation, your pet will be cremated alone and you will receive his or her ashes. If you opt for communal cremation, your pet will be cremated with several other animals simultaneously and the ashes will be divided between you and the other owners. Communal animal cremation is generally more cost-effective than individual pet cremation.

How does cremation work?

Professionals who offer pet cremation services understand the emotional aspects involved in the process. As a result, they will handle your pet’s cremation with respect and kindness. If you haven’t worked with a pet memorial service before, you may want to ask friends and family for help finding an organization that is known for its compassion and sensitivity. Some services also offer pet urns, which may be able to bring you a sense of closure during the grieving process.

What are the benefits of cremation?

You may be interested in pet cremation because you can keep your pet’s ashes as remembrance. You may also choose to bury your pet’s ashes and plant a flowering bush or tree in that area. You may also be able to keep your pet’s ashes in a decorative urn or in a memorial keepsake, such as glass beads, paperweights, and jewelry pieces. Keeping your pet’s ashes in this manner allows you to have a tangible representation of your family pet.

A Look at the World's Oldest Pet Cemetery

a look at the world's oldest pet cemetary dfwLosing a pet is hard, and many people seek solace in holding a pet burial service in a pet cemetery. Of all of the pet cemeteries in the world, Le Cimetiere des Chiens et Autres Animaux Domestiques in Paris is the oldest in existence.

Why the Cemetery Was Built

Le Cimetiere des Chiens et Autres Animaux Domestiques, which means The Cemetery of Dogs and Other Domestic Animals, was built in 1899 in a suburb in the northwest part of Paris. It was built due to a law that passed in 1898 that stated that pet burials must be hygienic, and must occur at least 100 meters from any houses.

Who Came up With the Idea

Georges Harmois, a prominent attorney, and Marguerite Durand, a journalist, came up with the idea of designing and building a pet cemetery to make it easier for citizens to comply with the new law. Since its opening, the cemetery has catered to an elite clientele of pet owners. By 1987, the French government had classified the cemetery as a historic site. It is now owned and managed by the city of Asnières.

Animals Buried in the Cemetery

The cemetery is home to a number of famous pets, or pets of famous owners. Rin Tin Tin, a dog who starred in around 26 films, is buried there. So is the pet lion that was owned by the cemetery’s founder, Marguerite Durand, and the pet of composer Camille Saint-Saëns. The cemetery is the final resting place for about 40,000 pets, including dogs, cats, a racehorse, a monkey, rabbits, fish, hamsters, mice, and birds.

Choosing Between Cremation or Burial for Your Pet

choosing between cremation or burial for your pet dfwIf you’re dealing with the loss of a pet, you may find that holding a pet memorial service can give you a sense of closure and peace. Pet cemeteries typically offer pet burial and pet cremation services. Choosing between cremation and burial is a very personal decision, and this information may help you make your choice.

Pet Cremation

One of the primary reasons that people choose cremation over burial is that the cost of pet cremation is often significantly lower. Cremation also affords you the opportunity to keep your pet’s remains with you in your home in a cremation urn, or scatter the ashes somewhere meaningful. If you don’t have the space for pet burial, or if you can’t afford burial at a pet cemetery, then pet cremation may be your best option.

Pet Burial

You can opt to bury your pet in your own yard, if you have the space, and you can hold a private pet funeral or memorial service after the burial. If you choose this option, you’ll have to bury your pet deep enough that its remains will not be dug up or disturbed by other animals. A home burial is not a plausible option for those who rent their homes, who don’t have the space, who share a yard with others, or who don’t plan on living in the home for the rest of their lives.

Pet Cemeteries

If you choose pet burial over pet cremation but don’t have the space at home to bury your pet, you can choose to hold a pet funeral at a pet cemetery. Pet cemeteries are lovely places that allow you to visit your pet’s gravesite whenever you want to. They often offer pet memorials, such as grave markers, benches, and statues.

At Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery and Pet Crematory, our compassionate staff can offer guidance after your pet’s death in Dallas. We’ll help you plan the perfect pet memorial service, whether you choose pet burial or pet cremation. For more information about our services, call us today at (682) 587-2324.

What Are the Benefits of Choosing a Pet Cemetery for Burial?

Benefits of pet cemetary burialLosing a pet can be an incredibly difficult experience, especially for children who are too young to understand what has happened. Although a pet cemetery cannot bring your companion back, it can provide a number of benefits that can help you through the process. Keep reading if you would like to take a look at some of the benefits of choosing a pet cemetery for burial.

Mourn Your Loss

There is nothing more difficult than losing a beloved member of the family.

A pet cemetery allows you to mourn the loss of your pet by holding a traditional funeral. This process can be very cathartic and help in the process of healing.

Visit Your Pet

While it may seem like a good idea to keep your pet’s remains close to home and bury your dog or cat on your property, this may be a troubling reminder of his or her passing for young children. Your neighborhood may also have regulations that can complicate the process of burying your pet in your backyard. When you bury your pet at a pet cemetery you will be able to return and visit the gravesite whenever you want; some people like to go and visit the gravesite on their pets’ birthdays.

Avoid Handling Remains

Dealing with the loss of a pet can be difficult as it is, and being forced to handle its remains can be simply overwhelming. Using a pet cemetery service can help you avoid this trying experience and try to move on. You can even have the pet cemetery service come and retrieve the remains from your home.

Signs of Illness in Cats

signs of cat illness dfwJust like humans, cats can deal with various types of sicknesses; unlike humans, they cannot verbally express their pains. Pet deaths can be painful for the whole family, so it is wise to keep an eye out for any potential signs that something is wrong with your pet. Read on for a brief look at some of the signs of illness in cats.

Sudden Behavior Changes

If you notice that your cat starts to engage in uncharacteristic behaviors, do not ignore these changes. Your cat may be sleeping more or waking up in the middle of the night, which could be an indication of pain or illness. If your cat has been drinking much more or less water than usual, this could be a sign of kidney problems or diabetes. Take your cat to a vet if its behavior changes radically.

Changes in Personality

Illness may cause your cat’s personality to change in addition to its behavior. A quiet cat may become much more vocal if it suffers from anxiety or high blood pressure. This type of change in personality will not typically happen without a reason, so the adaptation should be addressed. If your cat is normally a loner and has turned into your shadow, a trip to the veterinarian may be in order; the same applies if your clingy cat seems to want nothing to do with you.

Weight Loss or Weight Gain

While a sick cat may experience many changes in behavior and personality, weight change is a bit more objective and easier to measure. This change may also be independent of your cat’s diet; if your cat has been eating a normal amount and is still losing weight, diabetes or hyperthyroidism may be factors.

If your cat has recently succumbed to an illness, contact Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery and Crematory or visit our website. Our pet cemetery is proud to help you cope with pet deaths in Dallas, Texas in any way we can. Please do not hesitate to call us at (682) 587-2324 for more information about our cat urns and pet memorials.
