Pet Cremation

Pet Cremation Services – Handling Your Pet’s Aftercare

No one is ready for the death of their pet; whether they died unexpectedly under natural causes or you had to decide to euthanize your pet. It’s a very emotional time since you have cared for and bonded with this creature who has been more than just a pet.

After the passing of your companion, you have to make the decision on what to do with its remains. You can choose to bury your pet in your back yard or cemetery or you can choose cremation. Pet cremation is a popular choice among Vancouver pet owners since there is an option to keep your pets remains. When cremating you have to decide if you want a private or group incineration. In other words, your pet can be incinerated individually or with a group of other pets. If you choose private, your pet’s ashes will be given to you in a bag or a box. If you decide upon group incineration you won’t be able to receive your pet’s ashes, due to it being mixed in with the ashes of other pets.

Whichever one you choose, make the best decision for you and your family. Some owners decide to keep the ashes and put them into urns as a keepsake or memorial. Others decided to spread their pet’s ashes in their favorite spots. If you do decide to keep your pet’s ashes, rest assured that the cremation service is one that we trust and have used for many years. If you have any questions or want to make an appointment, please feel free to call us. We cared about you and your pet while it was living and healthy and we will care after it passes on.
