There are a number of wonderful ways to memorialize your beloved pet. Cremation can be a lovely way to honor and celebrate their lives.


Dealing with the end of a pet’s life is never easy. We want to make the process less difficult for you by offering cremation services as a way to memorialize and honor the life of your beloved pet.

Why should I consider cremation for my pet?

Cremation can be a wonderful and flexible way to celebrate and memorialize the life of an animal. Cremated remains can be buried, kept in an indoor or outdoor urn, or commemorated in jewelry or keepsake items.

When should I consider cremation for my pet?

We all wish our pets could live forever, but unfortunately there comes a time where we have to say goodbye. Please consult with us as close to end of the pet's life as possible, so we can determine the most humane and appropriate end of life care.

We offer three options for your pet's remains here at Lindsey Veterinary Hospital:

Private Cremation

Your pet is cremated separately and only your pet's ashes are returned to the clinic for pick up. You have the option of a scatterbox if you with to scatter the ashes, or if you wish to keep them: a wooden urn with brass name plate or we have several pet-specific urns that you may view at the clinic.

Communal Cremation

Your pet is cremated with other pets and their ashes are spread over the orchard at the crematorium in Oyama.

Personal Disposal

Your pet is returned to you for burial or other arrangements. There is obviously no charge for this option.

Please see our 'Pet Loss' section to prepare for euthanasia and to help you afterward.
