Aftercare & Cremation

Grief is the price of love.

Understanding Aftercare

Following the euthanasia or natural death of a pet, there are several options available for aftercare. These options traditionally include fire-based cremation or burial.

Regardless of your aftercare wishes, we will offer to make a clay impression of your beloved pet’s paw print, and upon your request our doctor can collect a clipping of fur as a keepsake. She will also leave you with the booklet “Grieving for Your Pet: A Guide to Understanding Pet Loss”.

Rest assured that the remains of your pet are always handled with respect and dignity.

What are my options?

I would like to have my pet cremated alone and have the ashes returned to me.

I would like my pet cremated, but do not want the ashes returned to me.

After my pet’s euthanasia, I wish to take responsibility for the aftercare process myself.

Honoring the Bond

***COMING SOON***

There are many ways to honor the special relationship you held with your beloved pet. For some, it may be a photograph or memory of a joyous moment in time, or planting a tree in your pet's name. For others, memorializing the treasured relationship can take the form of a specially tailored piece jewelry such as a necklace pendant. Some may choose to have a garden stone etched, reflecting details of their friend.

It is important to honor the deep relationship you had, in your own special way. For those who would like a physical memorialization for their pet, we are partnering with a few select companies to create a beautiful, personalized keepsake.
