What should I do if my pet dies?


Pets cannot live with us forever, and their lifespan is generally more than ten years. After the pet dies, the owner is very sad, so there are many different ways to commemorate the pet. It is not surprising for everyone to bury and cremate it, but when it is made into jewelry and taxidermy, can you still accept it?

If it was your pet, how would you choose to deal with it?

Treatment method 1. Deep burial

After the pet dies, everyone usually chooses a "feng shui treasure land" to bury it, which is the most common practice in rural areas. But remind everyone, if you dig the pit as deep as possible, first, you are afraid that the odor will come out and cause unnecessary trouble. Second, if buried shallowly, it may be dug up by other animals. So it's better to bury it a little deeper.


Treatment method 2. Cremation

Cremation is the safest method of post-mortem disposal. Professional companies can cremate pets after they die. If you have the budget, you can also buy a pet cemetery, and the ashes can be buried in the grass and other places.

Processing method 3. Making accessories

In foreign countries, such as Japan, the United Kingdom and other countries, after the pet dies, the carbon atoms in the pet's bones will be extracted, and then the carbon atoms will be combined into diamonds through special processing. Because diamonds are made of pure carbon. The most famous is Sue Rogers, 44, of the United Kingdom. Rogers) turned her three dead pets into a sparkling diamond ring worth £3,200. Equivalent to about RMB 28,000.


Processing method 4. As a specimen

This type of handling is most popular in the United States, where Americans have the habit of taxidermy of captured prey. Now it has also developed to taxidermy of their pets after death, and there are specialized taxidermy companies. Pets under 4.5kg are charged $850, and the price increases by $40 for each additional pound.

In addition to these four disposal methods, there are tree burials, water burials and hospital waste disposal. With the exception of tree burials, the other two are not widely accepted by the general public, so needless to say. The above four methods are the most commonly used and the methods that everyone can accept. From the perspective of environmental protection, tree burial and cremation are the best. More troublesome is the production of jewelry and specimens. It takes about 6 months to make a specimen and it is processed by a veterinary hospital.
