These days cremation is endorsed by many of our foremost thinkers and has the support and approval of an increasingly large number of people of all faiths and in all walks of life.
Simply put, cremation is the hastening of natural processes by a sanitary and entirely modern method. The body is returned to its original elements by a clean, intense flame. Cremation offers a much more elegant and sophisticated treatment of pets than the choices traditionally available.
After cremation, the calcified bone fragments of the remains, or ashes as they are commonly called, are carefully gathered and sealed in a container.
Pet owners can opt to scatter their pet’s ashes in a location that carries sentimental value to the family or they may also choose to save the ashes in an urn, placed in a discreet position within their home to serve as a reminder of their dearly loved friend.
