Pet cremation services for vets in Sydney, Blue Mountains, Illawarra, Central Coast and Newcastle 

Unfortunately, a time comes in every pet owner's life when they must say farewell to their much-loved companion. As a trusted vet, you will most likely be a very important resource for pet owners. Whether you are administering euthanasia to a chronically sick animal, or you're unable to save a furry friend in their final moments, you're always trying your best.

When it comes to supporting your clients in their grief, many vets choose to partner with Patch & Purr Pet Cremations to ensure their patients are given the send-off they truly deserve.

PetTracker 360 Technology

At Patch & Purr, we recognise that every much-loved pet deserves a dignified final send-off in return for their unwavering companionship. As a result, we are proud to offer private cremation services. We guarantee that the ashes that your clients receive are their pet's and only their pet's.

We do this by using our unique tracking technology. If a pet dies at the vet clinic, either by euthanasia or following an unexpected accident, you will be asked to tag the pet with the Pet Tracker 360 (pictured below) . This metal tracking disc will stay with the pet from the moment they leave their yours or their owner's care until they receive their companion's ashes in their chosen box or urn.

Every Pet Tracker 360 has a unique tracking number, which you will input into the VetLink system. This ensures that your client receives only their pet's ashes following the cremation.

VetLink

As a Patch & Purr Vet Partner, you will gain access to the Patch & Purr VetLink system. In VetLink, you will log and monitor your pet cremation cases in real time. Simply input the patient and owner details, including pet's name, owner's name, date of death and weight into VetLink and this information will be sent directly to your nearest Patch & Purr location.

You can even include the owner's wishes, for example a paw print or lock of fur. This guarantees that your client's queries are taken into account from the moment that their pet enters our care.

The Patch & Purr team will get in touch to arrange a pick-up time.
