Pet Memorials: A Tribute in Your Pet's Memory

After the loss of a pet, many of us experience the same grief and hurt as we would when a human friend or family member dies. Some VCA Loomis Basin Veterinary Clinic clients choose to take their loved one home with them for private care of remains. Others prefer a communal or private cremation, which we can arrange.

There are many ways of remembering and paying tribute to your years of happiness with your beloved pet. When you choose a private cremation, your pet's ashes are returned to you in an urn with a plaque affixed that includes your pet's name. Animal Memorial Service has many choices of containers for remains, including different finishes and styles of urns, and offers additional personalization through photo engraving.

We are also pleased to offer a library of helpful resources related to the loss of a cherished pet.
