Do you have questions about pet cremation? You’re not alone. Many pet parents consider this funeral option when it’s time for their furbaby to say goodbye. Whilst pet cremation has become an increasingly popular choice, we still receive questions about the process from pet parents, and we’re happy to answer them all.

Q: How can I guarantee that I receive only my pet’s ashes?

Q: Do you do cremation for other pets besides dogs and cats?
