8-26-19 Value Medium White Pet Casket My Emmy Lou is out of pain, now in heaven - I had to leave her in the Vet's freezer because I couldn't find a casket where I live. I had to go online, which I usually don't do. I found what I was looking for at Pets We Loved. Steve was great. I ordered it on Monday and it got here by Wednesday. The casket looked great and the seal tape impressed me. I wasn't able to pick her up at the Vet so my friends went to pick her up. Steve suggested the Vet could help with putting the seal tape on the casket. Cheryl Jackson

8-24-19 Deluxe Gold Large Pet Casket One Of Those Things You Wish You Never Had To Use - But when you do, you want the best for your loved family member. I didn't even take it out of the box for a few weeks because I instinctively knew the day I did I would have to use it. So I waited, hoping, praying that the situation would change. But when it didn't and my precious dog passed, I was so glad to know I was prepared. He fit into it beautifully and he looked adorable and at peace. It was well constructed and carried him from the veterinary office to the cemetery without a problem. It held up as they filled in the grave. And I rest well knowing he had a comfy place to rest in an airtight and well constructed container. It was a fair price for a good product. Delivery was overnight. What more could you possibly ask?

Pet Owners Have Options when a Pet Is Lost

My customers often ask me about options in burying their pets. Sometimes they aren't able to ask their Veterinarian so the pet owners are often confused about what to do. Typically when a pet passes away, there are 4 general options.

Cremation – a pet owner can choose either an individual or communal cremation. Most people choose the individual service, which is more expensive, but it ensures their pet's ashes are not mixed with those of another pet. The ashes are returned to the pet owner in typically 5-7 days and often in a decorative tin or basic urn. There is also communal cremation, where multiple pets are cremated at the same time. Ashes are typically not returned and are often spread over a garden or responsibly handled by the crematory.  Many pet crematories offer private viewings as well. Ask your Vet if this is something your interested in.


Country Burial - This may be called different things in different areas of the country but it’s basically when deceased pets are buried in a mass grave at an approved site. The Veterinarian will usually assist in taking the pet and working with the site owners to pickup the animal. This is a fairly economical option but may not sit well with most folks.  Due to impact on the environment, this is increasingly being phased out as an option but still may be offered in more rural parts of the country.

Burial at a Pet Cemetery – Most pet cemeteries I know do a nice job of setting the animal down and maintaining the plot so family and friends can visit. The cemetery will provide burial options including plot size, location and the type of caskets available. A good pet cemetery should take the time to go over all this information and not rush you through the process. Be aware that this is often the most expensive option. Fees for the plot and casket could range from several hundred to several thousand dollars and many pet cemeteries charge annual maintenance fees. You can visit the IAOPCC website (International Association Of Pet Cemeteries & Crematories) for a list of cemeteries in your area that are part of this organization at

Home Burial – Probably the most common and least expensive option. Pet owners often choose to keep their pets on their property. Many pets are simply set down wrapped in a favorite blanket or in a home made or purchased pet casket. Be aware that local cities and towns may have regulation against such burial so you may want to check with them first before choosing this option. There are many choices in burying at home, providing the greatest level of flexibility in how it’s done. This includes purchasing a wood or non-biodegradeable pet casket, having a burial marker made, planting a memorial garden, etc. It may be a better option when there are small children in the house as well. They can be more involved in the preparation, ceremony and care of the site. This can often help in the grieving process. There are many options for pet caskets. At
https://www.petsweloved.com/, we can help with many of these products.

Don’t hesitate to ask your Veterinarian to explain the current options when a pet has passed away. They have spent years caring for your pets and they should be just as much help when they pass on.
