Q:

Why is Pet Cremation so Popular?

A:

Cremation has been increasing in popularity and acceptability in the funeral business.  It only stands to reason that more people would choose it for their pets as well. Cremation is simple, clean and affordable.

 

 

Q:

How is cremation done?

A:

Your pet is placed in the cremation unit where, through intense heat, the body is reduced to ash, referred to as "the cremated remains". Since the term "cremated remains" is not used by the public, people will refer to the "cremated remains" as "ashes." After cremation, the ashes are placed in a decorative urn for display or in a temporary container, suitable for transportation, after which you may choose to scatter the ashes.

 
Q: How can my veterinarian help me with the cremation ?
A:

Your veterinarian is a trusted professional there for you and your pet in matters of it's health, You trust them and it only makes sense to ask their advice about death and cremation. There are choices to be made. With the help of your veterinarian,  you should choose what is right for you.

   

Q:

If my pet dies at home, what should I do?

A:

We have a 24 hour, 7 day a week pick-up service. If within 30 miles we will pick up for no additional charge. If more than 30 miles one way , be sure to ask about additional fees for services, between 7pm to 7am.

 

 

Q: Is there more than one kind of cremation?

A:

There are two types of pet cremation:

First ask, do I want the ashes back? If so the two choices are communal cremation and private cremation.

Communal Cremation:. the pet is placed in the cremation chamber with other pets. In communal cremation, the animals are separated in the unit so that the ashes of your pet are returned without mixing with those of other pets. Communal cremation is less expensive than private cremation.

Private cremation: your pet is cremated alone in the cremation chamber. Private cremation gives extra dignity and respect  in the cremation of your loving pet.
