Cremation is a process where the pet’s remains are exposed to intense heat. Through heat and evaporation, the remains are reduced to the body’s basic elements. The cremated remains (or basic elements) are what is commonly referred to as “cremains”. They are odorless, sterile, weigh only a fraction of the pet’s original weight, and can be safely stored indefinitely.
Most people are surprised at how reasonable the price is for an individual pet cremation. Pet cremation is roughly one tenth of the price of a human cremation. The cost of pet cremation is determined by the size of the pet and the options that are chosen at the time of cremation. These options range from a communal cremation without the return of cremated remains, to a full private cremation. We will always tell you the full price at the time.
