Casket prices are often figured into the burial costs. This charge may also include embalming or cold storage if a wake is desired, perpetual care, and gravesite decorations. Many pet caskets are made of fiberglass; however, some wood and metal caskets are available for an additional charge.
Cremations are a respectful alternative to burials for pet owners who do not own their own land. They are also a good alternative to burial for people who move frequently and who would not be able to visit their pets gravesite in the upcoming years.
