If choosing burial, how deep should you bury the pet?

The grave should be around two feet deep to secure the body and discourage digging by other animals.

My pet passed away at the veterinarian’s office. Can I select where my pet is cremated?

Yes. You can choose any pet cremation provider you want. Your veterinarian may recommend a specific provider, which is usually the crematory they have contracted with, but you are not required to use their provider.

Do any laws require that the cremated remains of my pet have to be placed in an urn?

No. There are no laws that require storage of pet ashes in an urn.

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.

When choosing a memorial or urn for a pet, can it be for any type of animal, or just dogs and cats?

Depending on the company and the products it offers, you may find urns available for storing the ashes of a pet as small as a hamster or as large as a horse. Dogs and cats are the most commonly cremated pets, but snakes, lizards, and “pocket pets” can also be cremated and inurned, or buried with a memorial or marker.

What types of pet monuments and grave markers are available?

Numerous types and styles of pet monuments are available through companies that specialize in pet memorial products. Manufacturers and vendors offer a range of products comparable to human memorial products, including engraved granite markers, photo-etched markers, stepping stones, and sculptures.
