It is critical to allow yourself time to grieve for the loss of your furry child, but there are several things that you still need to do to take care of yourself as you deal with the situation. Here is what you can do when a pet passes away in Vietnam.

Vietnam regulations

The animal disposal guidelines vary depending on the size of the animal. Small animals, including hamsters, rabbits, and fish, can be put in a black refuse bag and thrown out with general waste in the bin. Cremations are available for furries who’d like to hold a proper memorial.

According to the Vietnam Government Decree’s waste disposal guidelines, it is against regulations to dispose of large animals like cats and dogs by throwing them down a chute. Commercial animal crematoriums must be used to dispose of these animals.

Types of cremation

There are two types of pet cremation: communal and individual. 

  1. Communal pet cremation is when multiple pets are cremated together. This is the most affordable option as the cost is divided among the pet owners. 
  2. Individual pet cremation is when only one pet is cremated at a time. This is more expensive, but some pet owners feel it is worth having their beloved companions cremated alone.

Both options are available through most pet cremation services. When choosing a service, ask about their policies and procedures to ensure your pet is treated with care and respect.

Scattering or storing of ashes

When a pet passes away, its owner is faced with deciding what to do with the remains. In Vietnam, there are two main options for disposing of pet ashes: scattering them or storing them.

Scattering ashes is a popular option among pet owners in Vietnam. This can be done in many different ways, such as mixing the ashes with soil or placing them in a special urn that can be buried or thrown into the sea. Some people believe that scattering their pet’s ashes allows their pet to return to nature and continue its life cycle.

Storing ashes is another option that is available to pet owners in Vietnam. This can be done by keeping the ashes in an urn at home or having them cremated and placed in a columbarium.

    In the United States, there are no regulations that restrict the burial of a pet dog. However, some municipal rules may restrict the interment of animals within city bounds. You should check with your local authorities to determine whether burying pets is restricted in your area.

    When my cat passed away in Vietnam, I was utterly heartbroken. I felt completely lost and unsure of myself. Thankfully, my friend was there to pull me out of the jam. That I followed her advice and had my cat cremated was the best decision I could have made. Knowing that she was safe and I could always have her at my side brought me great solace.
