How Pet Cremation Works


  • How Pet Cremation Works

    • During cremation, the animal’s body is placed within a small, enclosed space, which is heated to a very high temperature. With heat as high as 1500 to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, the time required to cremate your pet is generally mere hours. The result will be ashes and bone fragments. If your pet has any metal parts within their body, such as plates or screws from surgery, these items will be visible at this point and can be returned to you by request. Next, the remains of your pet post-cremation are ground up, resulting in fine gray ash, which is placed carefully in a plastic bag. These ashes can often be respectfully disposed of at the crematorium. Alternately, you can keep the ashes, and either store them within a decorative urn, bury them or sprinkle them somewhere.
