How much does your pet cremation service cost?

Pricing explained

Pricing information is available on our pricing page or you can call us or request an information packet. You can alternatively speak with your Vet, be sure to ask which crematory facility is used and if they provide a choice of crematories. It is your pet so the choice ultimately belongs to you.

The day of your pet’s cremation will be a tiring and difficult one.

You will expect to feel a myriad of emotions, from deep sadness to anger, denial and even relief. No two people experience grief the same way, so always keep that in mind in the hours and days immediately after a pet cremation.

After your pet is cremated, this is when the grieving starts. If you choose private cremation, you will be given your pet's ashes in an urn of your choice.
