Cremating or burying your pet are both acceptable ways of disposing of your pet’s remains. Whether one is better than the other is generally a personal choice that should be made depending on what works best for you.
Nonetheless, cremating may be better on the following grounds.
Cremation is cheaper and less tedious than burying
You can easily ask a dog cremation service to take care of your dog’s remains with little involvement and at a cost between $50 and $400 as discussed earlier. This may increase slightly depending on a few extra costs.
Burying a dog will cost you a lot more and get you more involved with the plans, despite your grieving.
For example, if you chose a dog cemetery, you will pay between $550 and $4,000 to cover for costs related to digging a grave, the burial space, your dog’s casket, death date and name engraving, tombstone, and grave maintenance fee.
Cremation gives you a better chance to keep your dog’s remains closer
While you might be able to bury your dog in your backyard depending on country/state laws and keep a memorial spot of your pet, you might not be able to carry your pet’s remains if you move.
Also, burying your dog at a cemetery will keep you far from your dog’s remains and you can only visit once in a while.
Cremation gives you the possibility of keeping your pet’s ashes in an urn inside your home, which becomes a daily reminder of your beloved pet.
