FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Help! My pet has passed at home. What do I do?
Sometimes pets pass on their own, before the scheduled in-home euthanasia visit. Finding a deceased pet at home can be a traumatic experience. Call Nevada Pet Hospice directly at 702.528.5882 to receive support in this process. We can come to your home for aftercare, providing thoughtful keepsakes and escorting your pet to the cremation faciility, with the cremation directives of your choice.
Can I bury my pet at home?
Because we form special bonds with our companions, it is only natural that many of us wish to follow the human model of burial or cremation to respect and remember our pet. The option of burying your pet at home is difficult, due to strict government and HOA regulations in Southern Nevada. It's up to you, however it's not usually permitted to bury a pet on your private property. You may also find the idea of burial undesirable due to the risk of wildlife disturbing your pet’s remains. Today many pet owners opt for cremation since it both provides a way to keep your pet near you and allows you to bury or scatter some of your pet’s ashes in your yard or a favorite place your pet enjoyed. With our mobile society, many families choose pet cremation in order to keep their pet’s memorial with them when they move.
How do I know that I’m receiving my own pet’s ashes?
Frequently, pet owners who are selecting private cremation wonder how they can be certain that it is their pet’s remains that are returned to them. Nevada Pet Hospice works closely with our crematory, keeping careful records and strict protocols to ensure that your pet, and only your pet, is returned safely to you. You can ask the doctor for more details about this process.
