Aftercare and Memorialisation

Aftercare Services

We work with the company Pet Friends for all of our cremation services. We deal with them almost exclusively because we know them, we have visited their facilities, and we trust them implicitly to treat all of our patients with dignity and respect. We can take care of everything for you and can transport your pet to the crematorium (price included in the home visit fee), or we can arrange for the crematorium to pick up directly from your home for an additional fee (payable directly to the crematorium). You can collect your pet’s ashes from the crematorium directly, or we can arrange delivery by the crematorium or by us for an extra fee depending on your location.

They offer TWO main OPTIONS for cremation services.


Pets are cremated with one or more other pets. Because more than one pet is involved in ASHES.


The cost for this service is variable depending on the weight of your pet.


Pets are cremated individually, and their ASHES ARE RETURNED to their families in the choice of a velvet pouch with a medallion engraved with their name or a wooden box urn with a plaque engraved with their name.
