What is cremation? The cremation of a pet is a traditional, respectful, clean, and rapid method of reducing a loved one’s remains. A pet is gently laid to rest in the crematory chamber and is then exposed to high temperatures that reduce the matter into cremated remains.

What is the difference between a private cremation (individual cremation) and a communal pet cremation? Private Cremation (Individual Cremation)— A cremation procedure during which only one pet’s body is present in the cremation chamber during the cremation process. Communal Cremation— A cremation procedure where multiple pet’s bodies are cremated together without any form of separation. These cremated remains are not returned.
