If you’re reading this post, you’ve probably suffered the loss of a pet at some point in your lifetime. Whether it was your first cat, your childhood dog, your turtle or bird, no matter what age, you know how it feels. Which means you’ve probably faced this dilemma: What should I do with my beloeved pets remains?
Below are some options for consideration and also ones that you can discuss with your veterinarian:
- Cremation of your pet with her particular cremains (ashes) returned to you (often referred to as a private or individual cremation).
- Cremation of your pet with other pets (called communal cremation), in which case you won’t receive their unique cremains.
- Burial of your pet in a pet cemetery or on your own property. Please check with El Dorado County Animal Services for information on the latest ordinance rules.
