Aftercare & Cremation

Grief is the price of love.

Understanding Pet 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 pet aftercare wishes, as part of our in-home end-of-life care for pets, we 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. They 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 pet aftercare 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.
