What Is Cremation?
Cremation is the process of reducing matter by exposing it to intense heat. Through high temperatures and evaporation, the body is reduced to skeletal remains or cremains. These cremains are then processed to reduce them to small fragments.
What Is an Urn?
An urn is a container especially made to hold the cremated remains (cremains). Urns are made in many styles and materials and are available for long-term containment and display of cremains or for temporary containment prior to scattering of cremains.
Can I Be Certain That I Have MY Pet's Cremains?
Each pet is given an identification tag at the Veterinary Hospital; NO pet will be removed from the veterinary hospital without this identification affixed. This identification tag remains with the pet throughout the individual cremation process and is returned to the pet owner within the urn itself. A certificate of verification is also provided with each urn prepared by Animal Cremation Services.
Can I Witness the Cremation of My Pet?
Yes, you may be present at Animal Cremation Services when the cremation takes place. This service is provided by appointment only and must be scheduled with us. There is an associated fee. Being present while the cremation takes place is not a necessary component of the cremation process, nor is it an experience for which every pet owner is emotionally prepared to handle. Consider carefully whether this option is appropriate for you during this most difficult time.
