There is a lot of speculation in relation to the duration you must keep your pet ashes in a Pet Cremation Urn.
Over they years I have had many a question in relation to how long must you keep the ashes and are they safe in the receptacle supplied by the Pet Crematorium? Other queries have arisen over time of a similar variety. Will they perish? Will they rot? Will they disintegrate? So lets talk today about the actuality of the contents of your Pet Cremation Urn and hopefully you fill find solace and comfort in my response.
Once you have had your pet cremated you are given the cremains (this is the term used within the industry – broken down it means the cremated remains of your loved one) of your pet and this is usually sent home to you in some form of Pet Cremation Urn. These vary from each and every crematorium, some are suitable to display others are for outside use and some others you may be extremely disappointed in.
So what happens to the ashes whilst they are inside the Urn and are they safe? The contents of the Pet Cremation Urn should be the consistency of sand, obviously they are not sand or ash from a fire. The remains of your loved one have been processed to this consistency through the development of the industry. If you compare the ashes of your father that has been cremated and the ashes of your pet, they will be very similar. The consistency will depend on the crematorium and the equipment they have at their facility. The coarseness of the cremains does not mean they are not the remains of your loved one, it is simply a reflection of the equipment used in the final process of the cremation. Therefore they are perfectly safe as long as you don’t get them wet, for obvious reasons. So you will need to make sure that your Pet Cremation Urn is weatherproof or it will need to remain indoors to maintain the integrity of your loved one.
We can go back through history and find what archaeological studies have been completed and what was found of the remains. There have been cremated remains interred in urns found as far back as the Bronze Age, if we estimate the middle of the Bronze Age to be approximately 2000 BC. You can see from the date of the findings from the archaeological dig being completed that the cremains of your pet are indeed almost indestructible.
If you utilise a Pet Cremation Urn for the resting place of your loved one, they will be safe and their cremains will remain protected and respected in the receptacle of your choice.
