Many people choose to have their pet cremated after they pass away. At Midleton Veterinary Hospital, we offer a pet cremation service in conjunction with “Pets To Rest Crematorium”.
There are two options regarding cremation of your pet. You can choose to have your pet go for group cremation or individual cremation. With Group Cremation, you will not receive your pet’s ashes back. Nonetheless, this is often a popular choice, especially if you don’t have the means to bury your pet at home.
Individual cremation is an option whereby you will receive your pet’s ashes back. There are different options as to how you wish to have the ashes stored. Some people choose a scatter tube and like to scatter their pet’s ashes in his or her favourite place, or to bury the biodegradable tube and plant a tree in their pet’s honour. Some people like to choose a Tribute Box, with a little inscription and to hold on to the ashes within this box. Everyone is individual in how they want to remember their pet and mark how much your pet has meant to you.
If you are not sure which option is right for you, or want further information, please don’t hesitate to give us a call and we will go through the options with you in more detail.
