One of the strongest things to do this to let go. Separation is not easy, especially with the ones whom we love and share a bond with. One of the strongest bonds we have with our pets. It’s already difficult to bid adieu to them, that’s why Pet Crematoriums are much more required for bidding a last farewell to our best companions.
Pet funeral not only helps us to be ready but it’s also a gentle way of cremation. As we’re aware (especially in India) for pets, there are not many options available, and it varies for different locations. They just can’t be buried anywhere so it's always good to check local rules and regulations for pet burial and cremation.
Although in metro cities, there are some electric crematoriums and pet cemeteries located. Some pet NGOs and animal care centres also provide burial grounds for animals. Due to the lack of these facilities, people bury their pets in the backyard, which is not always the safest option. Shape
The land on which the animal is to be buried should be owned by the animal owner or land has been authorized for the burial of animals.
The grave must be at least 3-4 feet deep and should be excavated large enough to contain the animal body.
Choose a high and dry place, which is not at risk of flooding. It should be far away from water sources like wells, ponds, streams, etc. to avoid water contamination.
Be careful while digging to avoid disruption of any water pipes, underground lines, sewage lines, etc.
The grave should also be protected against any other animal digging up. Place a big stone or plant a tree over it. It will also mark a spot for your pet.
It is recommended to cover the animal’s body with a layer of lime (or another disinfectant) before the soil layer. Cover it with 3-4 alternate layers of lime and soil and then fill the grave with 2 feet of soil. It will aid in decomposition and prevent any risk of infection.
Take extra precautions while burying the pet after euthanasia. The medication is harmful and can be deadly to other animals if ingested by them.
