About 62 percent of U.S. households have at least one pet. They are a member of the family, and studies show that grief over a pet is as intense as grief over a lost friend or relative. There is no one way to grieve, so long as the owner gives herself time and permission to grieve. Many owners, though, chose gravestones for pets to honor their departed.
Gravestones for pets can be used whether or not one actually buries a pet. In fact, gravestones for pets can be important in the grieving process by itself. By choosing pet grave markers, one can memorialize a pet forever, and make sure that their Emory does not die.
Headstones for pets can have character to them. Many can be engraved with the image of the pet. Many can also be made of river stones or granite, giving them a unique character. If pet stones mark an actual burial site, be sure they comply with local zoning ordinances.
Gravestones for pets help in the grieving process. Whether they mark an actual grave or not is irrelevant. What is more relevant is that they memorialize a pet forever, and help the owner move on.
