The Cremation Process
There are four steps involved in the cremation
process and each is briefly described below.
- Step 1. Through the use of intense
heat, the body is transformed back to its basic elements.
What would take many years to happen naturally is accomplished
in minutes by the modern technology used in our cremation
process. Once cremation has taken place, there are only
purified bone fragments remaining.
- Step 2. There is a cool down period
of ½ to 1 hour before the cremation chamber can
- Step 3. Once the cool down period
has passed, the unit is very carefully cleaned out and
the contents are swept into a stainless steel tray. Along
with the bone fragments there are sometimes other non-combustible
materials such as a medical prosthesis, or metal from
a collar, etc. remaining and these will be removed leaving
only the bone fragments for the final step in our cremation
- Step 4. The bone
fragments are further processed into a fine, sand-like
texture. The processed remains of the family pet, now
termed "cremains", are placed into a plastic
bag in preparation for placement into either a ceramic
urn (included in our service), or other specialty urn,
as selected by the pet owner. The urn is then placed in a white box along
with our certificate of verification of cremation. The
urn is only sealed upon request by owner.
