At SBPH, we are associated with VHA (Veterinary Hospitals Assocation) who handles our cremation services that we provide to our clients. After a thorough exam on your beloved pet, you have several options to choose from after your pet's humane euthanasia:
1) You opt to take the body home. This means that you will handle and take full responsibility for all after care arrangements yourself by taking the body home immediately after euthanasia; You are aware of any applicable laws and regulations regarding the burial of a pet's body and understand caution should be taken when disposing of animals euthanized with drugs/chemicals.
2) You opt for Individual Cremation. This means only one pet is placed inside an individual compartment within the machine and cremated individually. The cremains are returned to you through our clinic.
3) You opt for Separated Cremation. This option means the pets are separated in the retort by space (2-3 feet). The cremains are returned to you through our clinic.
4) You opt for Communal Cremation. This option means that pets are cremated together and the cremains are buried off-site. This also means the cremains are not returned to you, the owner.
You may choose whichever option that is best for you and your family. You do not need to decide which option until the time of your appointment. We also make a clay paw print imprint of your pet's paw, along with their name on it at no charge. However, if you would like two or more to take home please let us know; there is only a small fee for additional clay paw prints.
