How Is Pet Cremation Done?

We are proud to provide the most delicate, caring, and respectful pet cremation service available across Ventura County, Santa Barbara County, and the greater Santa Clarita area. We understand the loss of a pet is difficult and hurtful. Understanding more about our cremation process can help provide some peace of mind during this time.

What happens at a pet cremation

Our cremation procedure is carried out with the same level of care and precision as a high end funeral facility.

The cremation process:

  • A pet’s body is gently placed in a cremation unit and subjected to high temperatures up to 1400-1800 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • The intense heat and vaporization reduce the organic matter to dust and dried bones.
  • We remove any surgical pins, rods, tags, pieces of collars, and other metal objects from the remains.
  • The remains are pulverized to get a coarse sand-like powder with uniform consistency.
  • These ashes/remains are then poured in a sealed thick plastic bag, placed in a urn of choice, and returned to the owner.

What do you do with cremated pet ashes?

Please note the following factors which determine how long cremation takes:

People choose to handle their pet’s remains in different ways depending on what feels right to them. Depending on the size and condition of the pet, remains will vary slightly in color and greatly in size and weight. The most common things pet owners do with their pet’s remains are:

  • Scattering the remains in a place of significance
  • Storing the ashes in an urn or other tasteful container
  • Burying the ashes

Do you really get your pet’s ashes back?

Part of what makes our pet cremation service the best in the area is that we guarantee that the ashes you receive are indeed the remains of your pet with our brand new state of the art multi chambered fernuce one of the few in the states with this up to date fernuce.

We guarantee the ashes you receive are those of your pet using the following procedure:

  • We cremate your pet in an isolated, private chamber so there is no commingling of remains
  • We carefully follow a strict procedure to track, identify, and store remains
  • We closely protect and monitor remains until they’re returned to the owner

Pet cremation services which don’t have private cremation chambers, cremate pets communally and therefore can not necessarily ensure the remains you receive are your pet’s, or are solely those of your pet.
