Pet Cremation.

Hi,
Some people think it is weird to do it but ohwell.
My mom's dog was hit by a car right in front of her yesterday. This dog was not just a dog it was her child and she was there for medical reasons. She was a mini pincher. She weighed abput 8lbs she was 9 yrs old. Mom has had her since she was 9wks old. Do you know how much it would cost to have her cremated?

  • Sorry for the loss. Pets are special. I have always treated mine as family members. We had our dog cremated years ago. He was a greyhound and very large so it was expensive. I would call your vet. They should be able to help.

  • A small dog like that should only cost about $100. or less. We have all or animals that die cremated. Thier time living with us mean a lot. You can pick your own urn out for your pet if you have a special box or containment . Then the cost is cheaper. Sorry about the loss as I am a mother and grand mother and love my animals as part of our family. Call your vet to see what the charges are.
