Unique Pet Urns
About Unique Pet Urns
If you're looking for unique pet urns, you'll want to consider the simulated urns from Perfect Memorials. Made with simulated bronze, stone, and marble, these urns are highly detailed, lightweight, and affordable. They are available in a number of styles, from stone vases and figurine urns to pet urns that look like garden stones.
One of the most appealing things about simulated pet urns is that they provide all of the detail and beauty of stone or metal for a more affordable price. In many cases, real stone is mixed into the composite to provide all of the benefits of natural stone, while making a final product that's stronger and easier to work with. These unique pet urns often include detailed figurines that have been hand painted.
What Are Simulated Pet Urns Made Of?
The term “simulated" can be confusing, but these unique pet urns are simply made of materials that are made to look like something else. For example, some of the simulated vase urns are made with a blend of crushed marble and a resin binder. This combination gives the appearance of solid marble, while making the urn easier to produce with a consistent design. Other urns are made using granite and other stone particles.
Not all simulated pet urns include real stone, however. Unique cat urns and dog figurine urns can be made from cold cast resin or polystone. Both materials can be lighter and more durable than the materials that they mimic, and it's easier to form them into detailed figures. Resin can be painted to look very similar to bronze, for example, without the high price that you're likely to find with a real metal urn.
Choosing the Right Pet Urn
When choosing an urn for your pet – whether it's a simulated material or not – it's important to select the right size. Generally speaking, you'll need a pet urn that holds 1 cubic inch of cremains for each pound of weight before cremation. In other words, if your dog weighed 25 pounds when he was alive, you'll want a cremation urn that holds at least 25 cubic inches of cremains. If you have any doubts, consult your vet about your pet's most recent weight and choose a unique pet urn that's slightly larger than you think that you need. You may also want to keep only a small portion of the cremains and scatter the rest, in which case you may want to consider a keepsake urn.
Personalizing for a Truly Unique Pet Urn
Many simulated pet urns can be personalized with custom engraving, typically on a small plaque that's attached to the urn. It's important to note that not all urns can be engraved, however, and you may want to add an urn medallion or an urn pendant. If you have any questions about engraving or personalization, please call our customer service staff at 1-800-979-8767 and we'll be happy to help.

Choosing the right size urn is easy. For every one pound before cremation you will need 1 cubic inch of volume. For example, a loved one weighing 200 pounds will need an urn that is at least 200 cubic inches or larger. Choosing an urn larger then you need is OK.
