7-12-17 203 Farewell My Friend Stone with Engraved Granite Insert I currently lost my cat of 11 years to a sudden illness and he passed away in my arms on the way to the 24 hour Veterinarian. His name was Two Stripes, I honor his name and life in purchasing this beautiful headstone in his name. You can say I was pleased with the order. I only have one suggestion. It should be a little bit more taller than it is. I know it was my mistake because after reading the dimensions and heights after I purchased. I misread it and that is just because I was ordering this item Under complete sadness, but this is not the only item I purchased. In 2014 I purchased a coffin for our little dog of 18 years and now both of them are buried side-by-side, but unfortunately I could not buy the coffin for my cat two stripes and I should have planned ahead just in case. But we did find something suitable for him packed it with some belongings that he slept on while slept next to me at night. So that his body can rest peacefully on. So in conclusion, if you are thinking of ordering products from pets we loved company. I would be okay in recommending pets we loved company, It does not take very long to arrive. A little pricey for low income people, but yet it is a good company Shaun V

4-12-17 Standard and Deluxe Pet Caskets size Large We are so happy to have found your line of caskets. We purchased a furever pet casket. When we received it it was just as represented with thick walls that look like they'll stand up forever. We have been wanting a permanent casket for our pets for years, and I think we finally found one. N/A

4-5-17 201 In Loving Memory Stone with Engraved Ribbon I love this memorial Stone, I was looking for something to put in my garden in memory of my rottie who we had to put down about 4 months ago to go with the baby palm we planted for him on his birthday and this is perfect. The Stone is absolutely beautiful and if it's even possible looks even better that pictured. Thank you for supplying this product, it makes my day when I look at it. N/A

My Pet has died but we are not ready for a Funeral

Many of my customers encounter the situation that their pet has suddenly passed away and they were not able to make prior arrangements for a burial. They often have the pets at their home and need to secure them immediately so they can hold the funeral. Based on many of these discussions with our customers, here are a few suggestions. 

The easiest option is to choose cremation for your pet. The crematories can usually pick up a pet quickly and hold the pet until they are able to perform the cremation. The pet is than returned in a container about 5-7 working days later. If you prefer not to cremate, there are other options when holding a pet for a burial. You should easily find a local crematory in your local yellow pages, internet search or a call to your Vet.

The best option, if you have a Veterinarian, is to ask them to hold the pet in their cold storage until final arrangements can be made. Nearly every Vet will have such facilities and are typically more than happy to help, especially if they have been caring for the pet already. This will give you time to purchase a casket or make arrangements at a pet cemetery.

If your pet is small, like a cat or small dog, keeping them in a home freezer would provide a few days to obtain a casket or make arrangements. The pet should be wrapped well in plastic and all other food should be removed. This really should only be done if you have a spare freezer. I’m not sure I would do this myself but I have had customers successfully use this method.

A few customers that have lost pets in the dead of winter, when the ground is frozen solid, have wrapped their pets and sealed them in either a non-biodegradable Pet Casket or a store bought plastic storage container. They would then be kept in an unheated shed or garage until the spring. Pet owners that were not comfortable keeping them in the house freezer used this method for their larger animals. An actual Pet Casket is the preferred method as they provide an air and watertight seal that will preserve the pet better than a store bought container. No matter how cold the winter is, it would not be advisable to remove the pet in the spring and to just bury the sealed pet casket or container.

And by no means should a pet be kept in a home, sealed in casket or not, it could be a significant health hazard to you and your family. Please do not take that risk.

The last option is the most difficult. If you are up for a challenge, we have an article on how to thaw the ground in order to have a winter burial. It will take a while but the customer that explained the process swears it works. It just takes time, persistence and some elbow grease. 

Well, I hope we could provide some options when faced with this type of situation. If you have another option, please let us know and we’ll pass it along.

 

Thank you,

Steve
