How do you know if you’re really getting your pet’s cremated remains back? Aug 25, 2020

Inquire about the traceability of your pet to ensure accuracy every step of the way while it is in the crematorium’s care. Some crematoriums attach a bar code or metal marker to the pet’s remains from the time it is received and throughout the cremation process. This marker is generally included in the cremated remains.
