Pet Day Care: Crazy Cats and Deranged Dogs


Horse Cremation Options: Which Alternative Suits You?

Days when dead pets were disposed of without dignity are long gone. Losing a pet that has been your companion for years is admittedly painful and according it a proper send-off when it dies is a show of respect and honor. It not only brings comfort but also elicits fond memories the owner had created with his pet. Horses, just like other pets, can be cremated using three common methods: personal, individual and communal.

Understanding the three cremation options while your pet is alive prepares you adequately before the worst happens. Although you'd want to live with your horse forever, a disease could strike and take away its life. Equip yourself with the intricate details regarding the three horse cremation services in advance. Besides being financially, emotionally and mentally prepared, you can also shift to another option while there's time.

Personal cremation services

When you choose this service, your pet is incinerated solely. No other pet is included in the oven at that point. People who are too attached to their pets can opt for this method. They can ask for its ashes after cremation. On the flip side, this option is the most expensive, so the owner must be ready to cater for the high costs.  

Individual cremation services

Here, several pets are cremated, but each is placed in its partitioned space. While you may collect your pet's remains after cremation, some ashes can inevitably mix with those of other pets. Individual cremation is cheaper than personal, but more expensive than communal cremation service.

Communal cremation services

Several animals are thrown into the incinerator and burned together. A pet owner cannot ask for his animal's remains since they are all mixed up. It is convenient for a pet owner who doesn't require the remains, but would want to cremate the animal rather than disposing it of eccentrically.

You can choose either of the three methods depending on several factors, including affordability. Which method can you afford? Owing to the varied services offered in each cremation method, their pricing is different as well. Personal is the most expensive while communal is the cheapest of the three options. Do you need the burned remains of your pet after cremation? If you'd love to preserve the ashes of your dead pet, personal cremation services would be the best offer. But if you don't mind leaving the remains with your crematory operator, you could go for communal cremation service.

Pet Day Care: Crazy Cats and Deranged Dogs

Hello, my name is Fiona. This is my brand new pet daycare blog. Like most pet owners, I know that my animals can be completely crazy sometimes. My cat Mitty loves to jump around when she is excited and can hide in the strangest places when she is afraid. And my dog Rex likes to chew things when he is nervous. Thankfully, when I have to leave my pets behind, I put them in a pet day care centre which has friendly staff. The staff gave me some great advice about how I could make Mitty and Rex feel relaxed and at home while they were away.
