We understand how important it is to have the support of your veterinary team when planning end-of-life care options for your pet. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have, and make efforts to accommodate you and your pet throughout the process. Please call us at (518) 383-6254.
Final Care Options
Every pet owner grieves in their own way, and our concern is making sure you get to say goodbye to your companion in the manner you most prefer. We offer several options that you can read about below:
- Burial at home – Owners do have an option to take their loving pet's remains home after euthanasia for a private burial. Please consider the possibility of having to relocate, and if your city codes allow. We will prepare your pet's remains for their trip to their final resting place.
- Private cremation – After having your pet cremated, you will receive a beautiful memorial package. This includes a decorative urn, a memorial votive candle, a paw print from your pet pressed in clay, a tuft of their fur, a cremation certificate and a framed copy of “The Rainbow Bridge.” It may take a couple of weeks before we receive your pet's memorial package. We will give you a call as soon as it arrives.
- Regular cremation – Your pet will be cremated, but their ashes will not be returned.
