Fancy Pet Farewells

There are many options out there now for diseased pets. You can have an open-casket viewing and a graveside service with burial in a pet cemetery for about $500 in Illinois.

All part of a pet focused industry that has grown from $23 billion to $43 billion in the last ten years, according to the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association.

The loss of a pet is as devastating as the loss of a relative for many. The pet may be the only family somebody has. Cremation is also an option, as are engraved memorial stones and memory boxes for the ashes.

The Association for Pet Loss and Bereavement is also available for counseling and support groups.
