Helping our clients who are about to lose a beloved dog or have just lost their pet is one of the most challenging things to work through. We are in the cremation business for beloved pets. We are a seasoned company, and we can help you choose pet cremation or burial. There are other options that we can talk about should you decide to contact us. We give you all the information you need to make an informed decision that is the best one for you. A year ago, we compiled a list of essential facts to consider when thinking about cremation for a dog. We want to pass on this list to make these decisions a bit easier for you at this difficult time.
We are animal lovers with beloved pets of our own. We feel your compassion and understand what you are going through when a pet dies. We have been there and realized the deepest grief.
- Did you lose a beloved pet to death?
- Is your pet sick or dying, and you need to consider some plans?
- Did you lose your pet unexpectedly?
Please take a look at these considerations, and then give us a call as soon as possible. No matter what situation you find yourself in now, we can help.
- Decide what is best for you and your pet
- Look at your financial situation
- Decide if you want your pet cremated or buried.
- It would be best if you decided what is best for you and your family.
- If you decide on cremation, you need to know there are three types.
- How do you want to store the ashes? There are lovely boxes, pet urns, and tins for ash storage.
- When you chose to cremate your dog, you can always take your pet with you if you move. When you bury your pet, you likely do not get this choice.
- Religious beliefs
- Access to resources
- You want a memorial? What kind do you want?
These are a few of the questions you need answered, and we are here to help you get those answers. Your vet doctor takes care of all cremation arrangements, so you do not have to deal with this in your grief. However, you can still take care of the arrangements if you desire. We worked hard over the years to gain the trust and reputation needed to take care of your pet. It is our passion that you fully understand the cremation process and know that we do all we can to make sure your wishes for your beloved dog are respected. As you contact us, we will explain and inform you of the three types of cremation and the cremation process.
- Private cremation
- Communal cremation-least expensive and more readily available but not your only option.
- Partition cremation
While all family pets become our friends and family, dogs seem to create a special bond. A dog becomes one of the kids.
Because of you, we created an atmosphere of love, devotion, passion, and respect for our pets within our company. Know that no matter what we say or how we feel when we try to comfort you in your loss, this remains a difficult thing for everyone. While every crematorium is different, there are basics and standards for all crematoriums. Crematoriums must use the heat of 1,400 to 1,800 degrees during the cremation process. The time it takes to cremate your dog depends on its size and weight. Times vary from 45-minutes to four hours, to several hours.
Crematoriums vary just as much as the cost for cremation. Prices range from $50.00 to over $400.00. The cremation process for your dog is much the same as for a human being. Your dog may be sent to a regular crematorium or a crematorium expressly for pets. Ashes returned equally to just a bit over three percent of their body weight before cremation.
Pet cremation services may be popular, but it is still not right for everybody. You might learn something about pet cremation that makes you want to go with a different option. Whether you choose pet cremation or not, it is important to be informed about the entire process. We explain everything you need to know. You need to understand that we feel the grief of every client who we serve. You can trust us when you release your pet in our care for cremation.
