Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions.
Will you come pickup my pet?
Yes. We offer this special service 24/7. We have found that most pet owners prefer it when we handle their deceased friend. The utmost care and caution are exercised during the pickup, transportation and drop-off of your pet.
Do you cremate larger animals?
We can facilitate animals up to 150 pounds. Currently, we can not accommodate animals such as cattle or horses, however, when this changes, we will announce it here on our website.
What does an Individual Cremation actually mean?
An individual cremation is when your pet is cremated individually, without the presence of other pets. This enables us to guarantee that the ashes we return to you or your veterinarian are those of your pet and only your pet. When we receive a pet for an individual cremation, it is handled uniquely, with the same dignity and respect upon which we base our business and philosophy. The same respect and dignity that we show each and every companion entrusted to our care.
Is Individual Cremation expensive?
No. In fact, most people are very pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the price for an individual pet cremation service is. Unfortunately, many people believe that pet cremation is similar in cost to human cremation. This is not the case. Pet cremation is many times less costly than human cremation.
What happens if I leave my pet’s body at the vet for them to look after?
Many veterinary practices in the US use pet cremation services, but it is best to ask what your local practice does, and make any recommendations you prefer. Your veterinary practice won’t mind if you ask about cremation services, they will want you to have peace of mind and closure.
How long does it take to get my pet’s ashes returned?
If you arrange your pet’s individual cremation through your veterinary practice, your pet’s ashes, in most circumstances, will be returned back to the practice no later than the following week.
