· What Happens During the Pet Cremation Process?

During the pet cremation process, your beloved companion is respectfully placed into a cremation chamber where they are exposed to high temperatures. These temperatures effectively break down the organic matter, leaving behind bone fragments. These fragments are then further processed into a fine ash known as cremains.
