How is a Pet Cremated?

A human is cremated by being placed into a chamber, and through extreme heat the body reduces to small bone fragments. A pet cremation works the exact same way. Depending on the type of cremation requested, your pet is put into a chamber by itself or with other pets divided by spacers. The chamber then heats up and the body reduces to a substance that resembles ashes but in fact is small, light colored bone fragments. Depending on the size of your pet, it can take up to several hours for the thermal process from start to finish. Anything metal will have to be removed from your pet including a collar or any surgical pins but we will work with you if there is something you would like to include in the cremation.

How can I Comfort my Pet Near The End?

Naturally, you want to ease their way. While you may feel a need to take your pet to your veterinarian’s office for euthanasia, there are many things you can do at home to naturally help your pet through the process of “letting go” of life. Here are seven recommendations:

  • As you wish to comfort your pet, speak soothingly to him or her. Keep lighting soft, and you may also want to put on some soothing classical or ambient music in the background.
  • Since his or her circulation could be slowing down, you may wish to cover your pet with a blanket.
  • Do not force him or her to eat. Keep their mouth moistened if possible, by gently dripping water onto their tongue.
  • Recognize that when death is near, their senses will begin to fail. The first is their sense of smell, followed by the senses of taste and sight. The last to go will be their hearing.
  • Gently reposition him or her, if needed, to make them more comfortable.
  • Allow your pet to choose the place he or she wishes to lay down, and then make him or her as comfortable as possible by surrounding them with well-loved toys, pictures, or fresh flowers.
  • Respect their need for solitude, but don’t feel a need to isolate your pet from the family. Just like you, your pet would like to be surrounded by those people he or she loves most. Stay close, but don’t crowd your pet, or make them nervous by being too close.
