Cremation and Burial?

At Quietus Vet, we think it’s better to plan. We know it is the last thing on your mind, but once you’ve made your choice, you can then concentrate on saying goodbye to your beloved dog or cat.

Here are your four choices available currently:

  1. Individual Cremation – also known as ‘Ashes Back’
  2. Shared Cremation – also known as communal cremation
  3. Use a trusted pet crematorium of your choice
  4. Burial at your home.

Your 1st Choice:  Individual Cremation

Also known as ‘Ashes Back’ personalised cremation is our favoured choice for pet cremation.

We can absolutely guarantee they are your pet’s ashes. We check and visit our preferred pet crematorium (PCS in Adwick le Street) regularly. Often we will make surprise visits to make sure they continue to be reliable and honest.

I will bring your pet’s ashes back to your home included in the cost. This is a unique and special Quietus Vet service. With most vets, you have to go and pick them up a few weeks later.

Our Gold Aftercare individual cremation includes a choice of six Caskets and Urns shown below.

Please choose from one of these six options – these six are included in the Gold Aftercare:

1).  Eco Card Scatter Box       scatter box ecological 

2). Natural Wood Casket              casket natural wood       includes engraved name plaque

2nd Aftercare Option:  Shared (Communal) Cremation : Silver Aftercare Package

If you would prefer not to have your pet’s ashes returned. (Some people call this “taking him away afterwards”):
This is your simplest choice. Often referred to as “normal cremation” or ‘leaving it to the vet to sort out’.
There are no ‘ashes back’ options with this choice.

The cost of cremation is on our services page under our Silver Aftercare Package.

3rd Choice:  You can use a trusted pet crematorium of your choice.

If you would rather take your pet afterwards to a local Pet Crematorium yourself, then that is obviously fine.
It is best you make your arrangements directly with the pet crematorium before Paul’s visit.

I have made a list of the Best Pet Crematoriums in our local area.

 4th Choice:  Home Burial of your Dog or Cat or Pet
