The inevitable loss of a family pet is a time of great sadness for all. We all know it's coming, but most of us can't bear to think of when that day will come. The majority of pet owners treat their four-legged companions as members of the family – they are our source of comfort and joy. And just as our pets have given us so much during their brief time on earth, it is only natural for us to want the best when sending them off as they cross the rainbow bridge. But more than giving them a beautiful send off, a pet cremation ceremony is a time for the family to reflect on the life of your pet. It gives the family a time and space to mourn, helping to bring closure to your pet's life.
Types Of Pet CremationIndividual Cremation It is also referred to as priority cremation, where only one pet is cremated at a time. Private Cremation A maximum of four pets are cremated at the same time. However, the pets are separated from each other to ensure that the ashes don't mix. Communal Cremation As the name suggests, communal cremation is when a group of pets are cremated together. Their ashes are not returned to the owner, but are either taken to a local landfill or scattered over a private pet cemetery.
