If you or someone you know is nearing, or has recently suffered the loss of a beloved pet, we are here to help with all memorial needs & wishes.
For all of your memorial needs, our hospital uses Trusted Journey Pet Memorial Services, a group specializing in aftercare of pets. Our hospital trusts in their care & compassion after a patient passes away.
As pet parents who have lost companions themselves, Trusted Journey understands the human-pet bond & how powerful it can be.
Specializing solely in pet aftercare since 1971, Trusted Journey is a best-in-class pet cremation service that provides an unmatched level of service to address your specific needs with respectful, compassionate care. They provide pet families with trusted & personalized cremation services & a wide product offering.
If a pet is euthanized in our hospital or passes away at home, we offer three different after-care options to best meet your wishes for them after they have passed. All three include an optional clay imprint if your pet's paw, complimentary of our office.
If your pet is euthanized at another hospital, our hospital still offers options 1 or 2.
Aftercare Option 1:
The first option is to utilize Trusted Journey Pet Memorial Services is to privately cremate your pet. This option provides you with the keepsake of your pet's cremated remains. When choosing this option, your pet will be promptly picked up from our hospital, & gently placed into the crematory at Trusted Journey, separated from any other beloved pets. When the cremation process is complete, Trusted Journey returns your pet back to our hospital, in your choice of one of six urns included with the price of their services.
(Six included urn options are pictured below).
There are also many options to upgrade your pet's urn that can be found on their website in the link below:

Aftercare Option 2:
The second option is to utilize Trusted Journey Pet Memorial Services to communally cremate your pet. When choosing this option, your pet will be promptly picked up from our hospital & gently placed into the crematory at Trusted Journey, together with other beloved pets. When the cremation process is complete, the communal remains are collected & placed in a burial area at one of their pet cemeteries. Because no cremated remains are returned to you when you choose this option, you may wish to consider one of their alternative personalized memorial items, such as a pendant necklace as a timeless remembrance.
Aftercare Option 3:
The third option is to receive a burial box to take your pet home for private burial. This option is no additional cost to you.
