We understand that every step in the final care and arrangements for your beloved pet is of the utmost importance in honoring the life, love and bond you shared. Individual and communal cremation are available through our trusted partners at Animal Memorial Service. We are here to assist you in deciding what is right for your beloved friend, and to support you through the process. Whichever option you choose, Dr. Ravina will transport your beloved friend with dignity and respect. *If your pet weighs more than we are able to transport, we can provide you with the contact information for a local crematory that can arrange to pick up your pet after our visit.
Depending on your location, it may be possible to bury your pet at home or on property owned by a friend or family member. You must own or have legal permission of the property owner where your loved one will be buried. Even with permission or on your own property, burying pets may not be legal. Regulations vary from place to place, sometimes even within the same locality, so it’s important to check with your local Public Health Department and/or County Animal Control agency to ensure that it would be allowed to bury your pet where you have planned. If you are choosing home burial we can will provide additional information to help you know what to expect and to ensure you are taking all precautions regarding safety.
