What did you do with the dead pets?
I am just wondering how people take care of things after a pet is gone.

Throw in the trash can?
Flush down the toilet?(fish)
Or backyard grave?
Or... well you tell me lol.

RE: What did you do with the dead pets?
sad.....As far as i'm concerned,it is not environmental to throw the dead pets in the trash can and flush down the toilet.Throwing it into the trash can will volatilize bad odour,in addition,it will increase the work amounts of the clean worker,who doesn't know how to handle with that.And what about flushing down the toilet?not a good idea,i think.We can't treat our dead pets like that.Maybe buring it into the soil and setting a small monument for it is a good choice.We can also take that for example t o teach our children to protect and cherish those creatures lol.

RE: What did you do with the dead pets?
We have ours cremated. A couple of years ago we were planning a "big move" that never happened. We put a lot of stuff in a public storage place. Stuff we wanted to take with us, including the cremated remains of several pets we had not figured out what we would do with yet. We were saved the problem of deciding. The storage unit had a fire and we lost everything. Yes, they were cremated yet again, this time to the point there was nothing to bury, scatter or keep in an urn. right now we have three cats and one dog. I reckon we get to start that process all over again.

RE: What did you do with the dead pets?
I'm probably of a different mindset, I've treated mine in a different manner-

Fish, dust to dust in a sense- they go to the garden or compost pile.

My past small pets have been buried here at home.

One cat I lost was left at the vet office for them to dispose of, the other went to a vet school upon his passing due to a slight deformity he had.

Some of my past dogs have been buried on my Grandparents property, one who was quite large was left at the vet office. Others I've had actually went away to the landfill as I worked in a setting that allowed for me to take them there with the consideration of my local legalities when it comes to toxic waste.

All, aside from the fish, have memorial stones or have perrenial plants , bushes or trees up in their memory but the physical bodies aren't a huge concern to me once the animal has passed.

RE: What did you do with the dead pets?
I would have done it differently if I've had a dog or cat or similar sized mammal pets. For fish, I used to use trash can and the toilet. Well, I might also do it differently to the fish I have now, because I've had them for almost two years.

OnyxGuide, it looks like most of your dogs and cats died in pets' hospital. Well, vet office is their hospital.

RE: What did you do with the dead pets?
Over the years, We've lost both cats and dogs that were a big part of our family. Some past away here at home, others, at the vet, but all are buried in our own little pet cemetery. We have a grove of trees next to our house with a small clearing where we have put up markers, and a stone cat and dog in the middle. I plant flowers up there and make it into a nice little garden full of good memories.

RE: What did you do with the dead pets?
It's only been in the last few years that I've discovered pet cremation. So my late cat (2010) and kitten (2010) were both cremated and their engraved urns sit in their favorite spots. Hailie's sits on top of my desktop box where she loved to perch and fall asleep on on cold nights, and Gerry's (the youngest) sits on the window sill where he used to crouch before he pounced onto my fingers working the keyboard. I get to keep them close to me, and it makes my room feel a lot less lonely if one of the dogs are having to stay at the vet.

RE: What did you do with the dead pets?
I've moved several times, and didn't want to bury them and leave them behind. I had my cats cremated, and future cats will be as well, and they sit on a shelf. After dealing with my parents deaths, I found that to be burried in the now full family plot, I could be cremated and burried next to the monument. So I plan to have my cats ashes added to mine when the time comes.

RE: What did you do with the dead pets?
You three really have a great way of dealing with your deceased pets. Dakota, I really like the idea of your own little pet cemetery, just please do not go all Steven King on us, okay? I just hope you don't one day move away and have to leave them all behind... but then, mine were cremated twice so I lost them twice in a manner of speaking.

We have buried our dogs in various places (unmarked) usually in the back yard. My last dog that dies was 145# and I had him cremated by the vet and they disposed of the ashes.

I found them right here.
personalcreations.com

Direct link to those memorial stones.



If I have a dog or cat, I would definitely use these memorial stones when they pass away. They indeed look very nice, and very nice prices too. The best part is that you can ask them to customize for you.

Are you planning on purchasing those nice looking memorial stones for your previous pets?

RE: What did you do with the dead pets?
It mostly depends on which species of pet for me. I bury cats and dogs and I bring the fish to the dogs. I buried my snake when it died as well.

I have been buying from them for a while now. Only fish supplies and live fish.

Those memorial are nice too. More expensive though.

RE: What did you do with the dead pets?
A few pets have been buried in the back yard and over the years, the markers got moved or knocked over and mowed or blown away during hurricane type weather. I guess we should have planted a small tree but they're all in the same area.....3 cats and more recently, my last two pets, doggies who lived to be 17 and 19. We got a cross at Walmart that could be stuck in the ground and it's marking the spot now.

The last one, we had euthanized and a little casket was provided so we could bring her home and bury her next to her playmate of so many years.

Thank you for the links up there. I most definitely will get one of those stones soon and let it be for all the pets.

This made me think of when we were discussing if we wanted to keep this house or move someday...and then it dawned on us...the pets! We can't move and leave them. They're buried in the backyard. I know some have no choice but to move....but we do...at least for now. But yes the urns and taking them with you wherever you go is a great idea.

Even for those who don't even have ashes, the urn can just be a memorial to the pet(s). Or a marker could be placed in the yard even if they're not buried there....a place just for a memorial. I even have a memorial in a pet cemetary in a game I play and often go sit there and "visit" with them while I'm doing work on the computer. They were my computer buddies when alive....still are.

RE: What did you do with the dead pets?
I've had pet dogs since I was a little girl and thankfully my parents have a couple of acres outside the city. We've buried several of our pets there and most recently my dachshund murphy. It never occured to me that some people do things differently like cremation until recently. I saw a documentary where people mix the ashes with paint and incorporate it in a painting or in a sculpture then place the work of art in their house or garden.

RE: What did you do with the dead pets?
We have all our deceased pets buried in unmarked graves on our property but we do have a couple of memorial markers one is a little flower bed with a large upright stone slab in the centre of the area where they are buried and the other is a small wooden paque I had made up especially for my husband when he lost his beloved Mikey. Mikey has his own memorial garden and the sign says welcome to Mikey's garden and has a photo of him laminated into it

RE: What did you do with the dead pets?
All of my dogs or cats, were either buried in our backyard or at our camp in the country. I always felt I owed it to them to have a nice place to rest. We put up little headstones and planted flowers of bushes at the head of their graves.
Even that big snake got a proper plot in a wooded area. Some people let the vet take their dogs and cats to be buried or cremated, or both. Not sure what they do with them, not sure I want to know.
