Keeping Pets Cool during the Balmy Summer Months

My husband and I live in the beautiful southern United States. While we wouldn’t want to live anywhere else, we sometimes get excruciatingly hot during the summer months. We aren’t the only ones that get hot at our home though. Our beautiful dog Lucy also gets hot. I’m constantly searching for effective ways to keep her cool while she’s outside. And during the winter, it can get oddly cold at times. Do you have loving pets at home? Consider purchasing a small plastic pool for your pets to splash around in. And when it's cold, make sure to monitor them very carefully while outside. On this blog, I hope you will discover ingenious tips to help you care for your pets during any extreme weather.

3 Reasons To Cremate Your Pet

Pets & Animals Blog

If your beloved pet has passed away, you have the tough decision of determining what you would like to have done with their body. The two commons options are burial or cremation. Cremating your pet can be a very good option for you for a variety of reasons. This article will discuss 3 reasons why you should consider cremating your pet.

Many Cremation Services Will Pick Up Your Deceased Pet

Those that are performing your cremation service realize how hard it is for you when your pet passes away. Because of this, many of them offer to come and pick up your deceased animal to take them in for cremation. This allows you to stay home and mourn the loss of your pet, rather than going through the difficult and emotional process of loading their body into your vehicle and driving them to the location where they will be cremated. Many cremation services will also give you the option to either come and pick up your pet's remains yourself, or have them delivered to your home.

You Can Always Have Your Pet's Remains

The thought of burying your pet in the ground and leaving them there is often something that is very difficult for pet owners. They realize that, if they move, they aren't going to be able to bring their pet with them and that the pet will be stuck in the same location. However, if you choose to have your pet cremated, your can bring their remains with you wherever you go. You will simply store the remains in an urn or other small jar, and you can place them where ever you would like inside of your home.

It Is Often Less Expensive

Another reason that it can be beneficial to cremate your pet is because of the reduced cost. While you may love your animal with all of your heart, you still are going to have to take your financial situation into account. Rather than paying for a casket to put your animal in, as well as a location to bury them, you are just going to be paying for the cremation service. The average cost for a pet cremation is going to be around $50-$150, depending on the size of your animal. A pet burial on the other hand is going to cost around $50-$500 for the casket and then $400-$600 for a plot of land at the pet cemetery.
