For many people, choosing cremation comes down to its lower price, the reality of more moveable lifestyles and the relaxation of religious mandates in favor of interment, but we think some of it can be attributed to a greater familiarity with cremation — especially given that many pet owners have sent their beloved animals to a crematorium instead of a spot in the backyard.
Of course, that doesn’t mean cremation is an obvious alternative for all pet owners — or that we’re all comfortable with the process. In fact, cremation is still a tough concept for many pet owners, who have plenty of questions. Here are five we're asked regularly and here are our very frank answers.
How does cremation take place?
Cremation is a thermal process that reduces an animal's remains to ash. It takes 30 minutes to two hours for most pets. The final step is to finish any remaining fragments (they are not totally consumed), producing the finer ash that pet owners receive.
What will my pet’s ashes look like?
Ashes will usually be a gritty gray substance that comes wrapped in a plastic bag within a beautiful standard Urn. You can choose to display the Urn as-is, spread the ashes in your pet’s favorite spots or select from a wide range of optional items we have available to honor and remember your favorite lost loved one.
If my pet dies at home, do I have to take her to the veterinarian for cremation?
Arkansas Pet Cremation will pick up deceased pets from their homes. Ask your veterinarian whether his trusted service offers this option for pet owners.
How do I know the ashes I get are really my pet’s?
Your veterinarian has probably worked with the same pet cremation service for many years, so he'd be the best person to ask. Private cremations can be the lifeblood of pet crematoriums, so why would we jeopardize our professional reputation?
What do you do with your own pets?
This is the most common question we get when pet owners are undecided over how to handle the whole issue. It’s not one we have an easy answer for, since every single pet I’ve owned has received a slightly different treatment. But I always get cremains. That way, I feel like I have the freedom to treat each of my pets as a complete individual after his death.
