MY PET HAS PASSED.  WHAT SHOULD I DO?

We offer our condolences for your loss.  You can wrap your pet in blankets or towels, and elevate their head if possible.  If you are unable to make immediate afterlife care arrangements for your pet, please consider relocating your pet to a cool enclosed space.  

WHAT ARE MY PET AFTERLIFE CARE OPTIONS?

Please refer to your municipal by-laws if you are considering home burial for your pet.  It is important to note that the medications used during euthanasia remain and pose dangers to other pets and wildlife, so burial after euthanasia is not advised.

 

Flame cremation services are available through your veterinary clinic and the Humane Society. These services are generally outsourced to the same corporate crematory and are the same regardless of which receives and stores pets for twice-weekly pick-up.  Pricing varies by clinic, and the Humane Society offers affordable pricing.

 

Stratford and the surrounding area have one local pet aftercare provider offering private transfer services, and on-site personalized same-day care in most cases.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CREMATION OPTIONS?

Both aftercare options are alternatives to burial.  Flame cremation requires high temperatures and the burning of fossil fuel, and gentle water cremation (Aquamation) uses a combination of water, heat, and alkali to essentially accelerate what takes place in nature after burial.

 

Gentle water cremation uses one-tenth of the energy of traditional cremation, and no toxic gases are released into the environment.  Crematory ovens burn a great deal of fossil fuel to maintain their temperatures, releasing harmful emissions into the atmosphere.

WHAT AREAS DO YOU SERVE?

We proudly serve Stratford, Kitchener-Waterloo, and surrounding areas. Please contact us to inquire about transfer services for your area.

HOW DO I KNOW I'LL RECEIVE MY PET'S REMAINS?

We understand the importance of having peace of mind knowing your pet will be returned to you.  Every pet has unique numbered stainless-steel ID discs engraved with the pet's name and used to track through the process.  As well, continuity through the process with one dedicated person ensures your pet will receive the careful attention to detail they deserve.

WHERE CAN I FIND MORE INFORMATION ON MY OPTIONS?
