The stage of grief after the death of your dog
It is the law of life and we all know it: unfortunately our pets do not live as long as we would like and we are sure that more than once you have stopped to think what to do when your best friend and companion has to leave. In addition, there are many cases in which it is necessary to consider euthanasia and this makes the situation more complicated, even if it is carried out to avoid suffering to the pet and the procedure is totally respectful and humane. How difficult it is to say goodbye!
cremation or incineration
The cremation or incineration of pets is a mandatory process in Spain and can be carried out in two ways:
- Individual cremation: with ash recovery.
- Collective incineration: no ash recovery.
You should know that in most pet crematories they will give you both options, individual cremation being a higher price, but you have the possibility of being able to recover the ashes of your deceased dog. Although normally, the owner is not in direct contact with this type of company, since it is the Veterinary clinic or the insurer, which is in charge of the entire procedure.
On the other hand, in no case should the decision to dispose of the body of a pet be made without first having complied with current regulations:
- Your veterinarian will manage the request to remove the deceased pet from the animal identification registry. That is, fill out a form that you will sign as the owner. In addition, this will remove the microchip.
- The animal will be sent to an authorized pet cremation company.
Did you know that burying a pet in a field or near a river is dangerous? This could cause significant biological contamination and would be very harmful to other living beings and fauna. At Tiendanimal we want to insist on the importance of always acting consistently and responsibly. The planet belongs to everyone and we must take care of it!
