Pet cremation is based on your pet’s weight. The average cost of pet cremation in Australia is anywhere from $275 for a pet under 10kg, to $380 for a pet over 40kg. Premium urns, boxes or memorial keepsakes are also often available, usually for an additional fee.

How much does it cost to get a cat cremated?

Are pets individually cremated?

Most crematoriums offer private individual cremations. Pet owners can even view their pets remains being cremated through a viewing window at some crematoriums. However, most crematoriums also offer a second option called group cremation. This is a lower cost, environmentally friendly way of disposing of pet remains. For group cremation, ashes are not returned to the owner.

Is it better to cremate or bury a pet?

It comes down to personal preference as well as local council regulations. If you would prefer to have a visual reminder of your pet inside your house, cremation is probably a better option. Ashes returned in an urn or wooden box can be placed on the mantle for a visual memorial of your pet. When burying a pet in the yard, a visual reminder can be a tree or plant planted over the top of your pet’s burial site.

Is it weird to keep a pet’s ashes?

Not at all. A lot of people find comfort from having a memorial of their pet nearby. It’s not dissimilar to visiting a cemetery for a lost relative. A pet’s ashes are often set aside a favourite photo, paw print or other token of remembrance.

How long does it take to get dogs ashes back?

Usually 5 – 7 days. If certain custom urns are requested, this can extend to a few weeks however, while your pet’s urn is crafted. This can also apply if custom jewellery or keepsakes are chosen.

Do vets offer cremation?

Yes, most vets do offer cremation. This is usually done through a third party crematorium service. Vets do not normally have cremation equipment in house.
