This depends on the arrangement between your veterinarian and the crematory. Some crematories will only deliver a pet’s remains to the clinic (particularly if they have a working arrangement with the vet clinic). Others will deliver to your home via a courier service. Sometimes there is an additional charge to have home delivery.
