The overall quality of your pet’s life is a big consideration. While many people worry they will not know when the time is right, you are the best judge of your pet’s quality of life.
You may bring your deceased pet home with you for a private burial or we can make arrangements for cremation services. Cherry Ridge Veterinary Clinic has a professional relationship with Pet Memorial Services, a cremation service in business since 1996. They offer private or communal cremation services, with or without the ashes returned to the owner, depending on your choice. They also offer a variety of urns, stones, and jewelry.
Communal Cremation Service is where a group of pets are cremated together, leaving their cremains inseparable. With this type of cremation service pet families are unable to receive their beloved's cremains as a keepsake, instead they are buried at a deed-restricted pet cemetery in Northern Pennsylvania.
Private Cremation Service is where your pet is cremated alone where your pet's cremains are saved for your family. Your pet's cremains will be returned to you packaged in a velour pouch and hand carved hardwood urn with a custom engraved brass nameplate. This urn is provided free of charge with the individual cremation service and serves as a lasting memory. They also have a large selection of urns and boxes that can be purchased.
Pet Memorial makes every effort to have the pet returned as soon as possible.
