How do I choose an urn?

You need to decide if you are eventually going to scatter the ashes, in which case you might opt for a temporary container. If you are going to store the ashes permanently in an urn, you will need to choose the urn based on the pre-cremation weight of your pet. Most companies that sell urns will be able to provide some guidelines as to the size you need for a particular style. While not exact, this should give you an approximate idea of the size you will need.
