I've tried googling online about what you do with the body and who you contact, but i haven't gotten clear answers.

What to do you after a cat dies? Who do you contact and what happens to the body?

Your veterinary hospital will have the resources to proceed with disposing a body. They can either provide you contact information or take your pet and register him with them for you.

There are a few options:

1) If bi-laws permit, bury him in your back yard (3-4 feet deep minimum).

2) Common burial - this will be done by the cremation service in your area.

3) Common Cremation - Cremated with other pets, no ashes will be returned.

4) Private Cremation - expensive, cremated alone and ashes will be returned.

5) Pet Cemetery - usually done by the cremation service.

  • There are Private Cremation service available in our area for about $300 for small pets. I would not describe this as very expensive. Apr 9, 2017 at 9:43
  • Ours its about that too, though I find it expensive lol especially since common cremation is about 30$ Apr 9, 2017 at 12:52
