The death of a pet is a great sadness for its owners. But to the feeling of loss, another concern is usually added - the need to bury the pet. The hardest part is for owners of large dogs. But burying a miniature hamster can be a problem, especially if you live in a metropolis, and the death of a pet fell on the winter.
It is necessary
- - shovel;
- - box.
The easiest way out is to bury the deceased hamster in the park, forest belt or on the lawn next to the house. The grave must be deep, otherwise stray dogs will dig it up. Wrap the body of the hamster in a rag or pack it in a box and place it in the dug hole. Fill it with soil and tamp it, put stones on top to protect it from digging out. For the same purpose, the burial site can be watered with a small amount of bleach.
Those who have a summer cottage can bury their pet in the far corner of the garden. Choose a picturesque place under a tree or bush, plant flowers on the grave, and decorate it with a decorative stone.
If your hamster died in the winter, try burying it. To break open the frozen ground, you will need a sharp bayonet or sapper shovel, and sometimes even a crowbar or ax. The task is simplified if there is a heating main near your home. The ground next to it does not freeze, so a hole of the required depth can be dug without problems.
Another option is to send the deceased animal to a veterinary clinic, where the corpse is cremated. Call different hospitals and find out which of them will agree to provide such a service. In some institutions, the cremation of deceased animals is indicated in the price list. Bring the deceased hamster to the clinic, hand it over to the staff and pay for the service. For greater reliability, contact your familiar doctors or hospitals with a good reputation.
