What is Involved in Pet Cremation?

During the cremation process, your pet's body is reduced to ash and bone fragments using extreme heat within a cremation chamber. All organic matter is consumed by heat or evaporation. The remaining material is referred to as "cremated remains." These cremated remains are then carefully removed from the cremation chamber to be scattered or returned to you. At Parsell Pet Crematorium, we cremate dogs and cats of all sizes and other household pets. We use a specific identification process and protocols in accordance with the highest standards of care to ensure that you receive only your pet's remains.
