Pet Death - From Death to Cremation

The cremation process begins with the placement of the deceased pet in the cremation chamber(in this case a service that will come to your home) where it is subjected to intense heat and flame reaching temperatures between 1400 and 1800° F. All substances are consumed except bone fragments (calcium compounds) and/or metal, that was not removed prior to cremation as the temperature is not sufficient to consume them. The time for cremation to be completed varies with the size and weight of each pet remains but usually takes between 45 min. to 2 hours. Following a cooling period, the cremated remains are then swept or raked from the cremation chamber. After the cremated remains are removed from the cremation chamber. All non-combustible materials that have not been removed prior to cremation, will be separated and removed from the bone fragments.  Once the bone fragments have been separated from other material, they may be further processed to reduce the size of the bone fragments to uniform particles. Cremated remains, depending on the bone structure of the pet, will weigh from 1 to 5 pounds, and are usually white in color, but can be other colors due to temperature variations and other factors.
