How Should Your Pet’s Final Journey Be Done? Saying goodbye is never easy. Especially to the animals, we choose to keep as our best friends. Pets require care, love, and attention, but that does not end when their lives end, taking care of the remains of your pet is also essential. We understand how difficult this can be, and dealing with the pain of loss is unbearable; nonetheless, pet cremation is the responsibility of an owner.
In Singapore, the owners spend quite a good lot of time with their pets, and they consider it their ethical obligation to take care of the pet, even after its death. The remains of the muted body can be held at the veterinarian’s office for a day or two until the owner decides which cremation service he wants to opt for his pet. When you receive the body of the pet from a vet’s office, it is essential to have a small service or funeral in the memory of the pet. It is considered as the right way to the final goodbye to your best friend. In this article, we would discuss some essential things that should always be kept n mind regarding the pet cremation services in Singapore.
It must be noted that a Casket is not required for the final disposal of a pet’s body. Mostly, the pet’s body is laid down on a pad with flowers scattered around its body. There are three different types of cremation in Singapore.

Settling the remains of your pet is the most ideal thing, and most owners prefer to do this as soon as possible for them. The owners must prepare themselves that cremation might not happen on the same day. The owners must not panic if the cremation is scheduled at a later time. The owners must know that their pet is in the safe hands, and its body has been preserved appropriately. The vets make sure that no decomposition occurs to the body of the dead.
There are several types of cremation services available in Singapore, as discussed above. The owners who decide to get the private and individual cremation services can bring their pet’s ashes back home and bury them in their common burial ground. You can also opt for the pet columbarium; however, that would require an initial fee, which would also include maintenance fee in it. Some companies in Singapore also allow taking the ashes back home and bury them in the burial ground so that the owners would not feel alone after their pet is no longer with them. Burying it in the house is also considered to prevent the lonesomeness of the pet after its death.
Scattering the pet’s ashes in the sea is considered as the most ideal thing to do because it regards and respects the freedom of the pet after its death. Some people also scatter the ashes in the sea because their pets used to love water. Scattering the ashes in the sea is done for free or at some cost by the cremation companies because this act must be done 2.8 km south of the Palau Semakau as directed by Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore. Otherwise, the pet owners can get the ashes and convert them into gemstones. This can be done at the Singapore Casket. It is believed that the ashes have the same carbon structure as other gemstones (Especially diamonds).
The departure of your pet can be a sudden event. Thus, you always need to know about the cremation activity and as there is no earmarked burial site for animals in Singapore. The above article regarding the must-knows would help you prepare yourself when a time like this comes.
