As a nation of animal lovers we want to look after our pets as well as we possibly can and treat them with respect for the whole of their lifetime. When our pet dies we want to know that this respectful attitude also extends to the disposal of their remains. Some owners will opt to bury a much-loved pet in their garden, but may find that this is prohibited by their Local Authority or is only allowed for very small pets such as hamsters or guinea pigs. Many cities in the UK have dedicated pet cemeteries and will offer pet cremation as one of their services with the ashes being buried on site or returned to the owner.
Who Uses a Pet Cremator?
Pet incinerators suitable for pet cremation can accommodate a surprising range of animal sizes from gerbils right up to horses and are a must for veterinary practices, clinics and colleges where animal mortality management is part of the everyday operation. Pet incinerators offer safe and humane disposal of animals and the technology means that the process is discreet, with no smoke or odour, and is efficient and cost effective with a range of pet incinerators to suit different business needs.
Ensure You Have a Regular Revenue Stream
A charge for the disposal of the pet’s remains is commonplace and owners will usually be prepared to pay for the assurance that the pet cremation is carried out professionally and in a respectful manner. A business specialising in pet cremation can offer a valuable service to pet owners who may not be able to bury their pet due to lack of suitable space or tenancy restrictions and can be lucrative depending on the availability of the service where the business is based.

The specialised design of pet cremators makes them clean, efficient and user friendly and the technology also offers a multiple animal disposal process where more than one body at a time can be processed while still keeping the ashes of each separated for return to the owner if requested.
