Why is Pet Water Cremation a Greener Option?
Pet Water Cremation uses the natural and gentle process of Alkaline Hydrolysis to water cremate your pet.
Traditional fire pet cremation requires very high temperatures, and uses large amounts of electricity to heat the cremation chamber.
Traditional fire pet cremation produces significant amounts of greenhouse gas emissions and contributes to global warming.
Pet Water Cremation operates at a much lower temperature and uses a fraction of the energy of fire pet cremation.
Pet Water Cremation creates less than 10% of the greenhouse gas emissions released in fire cremation.
How Does Pet Water Cremation Work?
Pet Water Cremation is simply replicating a process in nature, where a pet is placed in a flowing stream of water.
During Pet Water Cremation, the pet is placed in a stainless steel cylinder and immersed in a heated solution of water and alkaline for several hours.
Following a Pet Water Cremation, your pet's remains are returned to you in a pet cremation urn in the form of 'ashes'.
Pet Water Cremation is sometimes known by alternative names including Aquamation, BioCremation or Green Cremation.
Pet Water Cremation is becoming very sort after among pet lovers in the USA, and we are proud to be making this service available in Melbourne, Australia.
Pet Water Cremation is available for all domestic pets including cats, dogs of all sizes, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, goldfish, lizards, snakes and more. Please enquire if you have an exotic pet and we can confirm if Pet Water Cremation is available.
We also offer a range of lovely Pet Cremation Urns. Please enquire for details.

Pet Reflections & Informal Funerals
Many families choose to have their own reflection or informal funeral for their pet, once we have returned your pet's ashes to you.
These can take many forms and are as unique as your family and friends.
One suggestion we make to families is that the family and friends of the pet may like to gather in a location where they really had fun with their pet.
You may like to have a photograph of your pet and make a small memorial display of your pet's possessions.
Each member of the family or a friend may like to tell the group how they felt about the pet, or recount their favourite memory of your pet. Children, in particular, find this a valuable grieving process.
Several members of your family can then solemnly scatter the pet's ashes and your family can say 'Good Bye'.
Religious families may wish to say a prayer for their pet at this time.
Your family and friends may then like to enjoy a picnic or snack together, celebrating the life of the pet you all loved.
