How Is Pet Cremation Done?

During the process, a pet’s body is gently placed in a cremation unit and subjected to high temperatures up to 1400-1800 degrees Fahrenheit. Thus, the intense heat and vaporization reduce the organic matter to dust and dried bones. Next, the surgical pins, rods, tags, pieces of collars, and other metal objects are removed from the remains. Then 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. You may then transfer the cremated remains wherever you'd like. Having received the ashes you may choose to scatter, store, or bury them. The cremated remains are usually pale white in color. However, the color may vary due to certain medications or health issues. The time for cremation depends on the type of pet you have. For instance, cremation of smaller animals such as birds, mice, rabbits, hamsters, only take about an hour and half from start to finish. On the other hand, larger animals like Goat, pig, large breeds of dogs, etc. can take hours. The weight of the cremation ashes also depends on the weight and bone structure of your beloved pet. Until the process of cremation begins, the pet is kept in a refrigerated cooler.
