Everything you need to know about Pet Cremation

Your pet is a part of your family they’ve been by your side through thick and thin. They are a part of all your happy memories. Now if they’re gone, you should celebrate all the joy they brought into your life by cherishing their life and giving them a proper memorial. You might have seen in movies that they depict burials in the backyard, but, that isn’t always possible. Instead, pet cremation has become the most respective, common, and affordable option to bid a proper goodbye to our four-legged friends.

Pet cremation usually follows these basic steps:

The pet’s remains are cremated using high heat. The time it takes depends on the size of your furry friend but is generally around two hours.

Large pieces of bone that did not cremate are transformed into a fine dust that resembles ash.

The ashes or dust of the furry friends will be placed in your chosen storage. Your crematorium may provide you with an urn, box, or other enclosed container.

If the crematorium allows witnessing the cremation, you can pay an extra fee to be either in the cremation room itself or in a viewing room. Witnessed cremations can help you get closure in the grieving process.


There is also a relatively new water-based method for pet cremation, called alkaline hydrolysis. It’s being more popular as a natural and environment-friendly cremation option. This cremation solution uses water and a water-soluble alkali to decompose the body in a pressurized container. At the end of this process as well, you’ll receive the ashes of your furry friend’s earthly body.
