How do I know I will get my pets ashes back?
ALL pets are handled and cremated individually with care and respect. Each pet is cremated on their own thus ensuring that you receive your own pet’s ashes. We provide a certificate that is returned to you with your pet's ashes. we only carry out GENUINE INDIVIDUAL CREMATIONS as explained in the Strict Code of Practice that we adhere to.
What services will my vet offer me?
This will depend on the veterinary practice that you use. Sadly, not all vets give you the option of choosing between different crematoriums. If your vet has suggested an alternative crematorium to Phoenix Pet Cremations please check whether they are an Association member as not all pet crematoriums operate to a code of conduct to ensure you get a genuine individual cremation and your own pets ashes back.
