Advice about Pet Ashes

Advice about pet ashes – questions to ask and things to consider.

Advice about pet ashes is something that your vet or your pet crematorium doesn’t always talk about. Your pet is part of your family and when you have to say goodbye it can be difficult to know what to do or who to turn t0. There is no funeral so you can be left just holding an urn.

I’ve had to say goodbye to Tommy, Siouxsie and April and it was tough, every time. Since 2010 I’ve been helping people to cope with pet grief and giving them the right information so that they can choose what is right for them, their pet and their families.

Here are the links to what you need to know to make the right decisions for you and your family. Read them to find out what you need to ask your vet and/or the pet crematorium:
