Informing your Vet

Your vet does not automatically use Edinburgh and Lothian Pet Crematorium services, even if you see our poster displayed in their surgery. All vets’ have different arrangements for the disposal of pets.  Your vet is unlikely to inform you that you have choices and that there are alternative services available to you – you are not required to make an instant decision (although some vets may try to impose this on you). You can go away and take the time that you need to make an informed choice about how you would like to proceed. The vet will always recommend their service. Do ask your vet where your pet will be transported to, and when it this will happen.

Whatever you chose to do, please be assured that I will be available to support and accommodate all of your needs at this time.

I can assure you that the costs involved for our services are no more than that charged by you veterinary practice, and in most cases – less. We set ourselves aside from their service by being able to accommodate your pet on the same day, and offer cremation within 24 hours, but almost certainly this is done on the same day.

Important Information

I have had a lot of enquiries from pet owners who wish to visit the site prior to deciding whether to use my service. Where possible, I am happy to arrange this but it may not always be convenient i.e. if a cremation is taking place.

To date, I have been able to accommodate all pet owners, and always ask if they would like to view the incineration area prior to leaving their pet with me.

I have also been asked if the pet can be viewed during the cremation process via the viewing window. Can I please make everyone aware that to comply with my license conditions, the cremator must run at 850 degrees and above, throughout the cremation process. Therefore, for health and safety reasons, and license purposes, I cannot allow a pet owner to be present throughout this process.  You are welcome to remain on site until the cremation is complete - just not in the incineration area.

I do understand the need to ensure that your pet is cremated individually and that the remains returned to you are that of your own pet. Please be assured that I have very stringent paperwork that needs to be completed and returned to comply with my license, and therefore record every step of the process for each pet individually.

I do not carry out mass cremation, and I do not incinerate clinical waste.

You may wish to bring your pet directly to us and spend time with them to say your last goodbyes.

Please can I ask you to call in advance to ensure that I am able to accommodate you at your chosen time.
