Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some frequently asked questions about pet cremation. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us.

Can you pick up my pet from clinic or my home?

We are able to pick up your pet from your vet clinic, or we can come to your home to collect them if you are having home euthanasia or have taken your pet home from the clinic. Prices start at $10, depending on the location, and availability of our vehicles. All pets will receive a cremation certificate with the date of their cremation.

Can I bring my pet to the crematorium myself?

You can visit our Google Maps page to find information about our location and either schedule an appointment or call us before coming in.

What happens after cremation?

You may want to come back to the Chieu Minh Center to get your pet’s ashes. Alternatively, we can return ashes directly to your home or your vet, which we are happy to do, although an additional charge is made for this service.

Would it be possible to cremate my pet and collect their ashes in the same day?

We can accommodate an immediate cremation upon request for an additional charge.

Should I choose cremation or burial for my pet?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the decision of whether or not to cremate or bury your pet depends on a variety of factors, including the type of pet, the location of the pet’s burial or cremation, and your personal preferences. However, if you are unsure about what to do, it is always best to speak with a pet cremation specialist to get additional information and advice.

How long does it take to cremate a pet?

The cremation process usually takes between one and four hours, depending on the size of the pet. The average time for a small animal is one hour, while a large animal can take up to four hours.
