What is Cremation?
Cremation is a process that many pet parents choose as an alternative to burying their deceased. Cremation involves your pet’s remains being placed within a small, enclosed space and heated to an incredibly high temperature to transform their body into ashes and bone particles. These remains are then processed into fine ash and returned to the pet parent. Some pet parents will keep their pet’s remains in an urn, while others may choose to bury them or scatter them in a place of significance for them and their pet.
How Cremation Works
No pet parent wants to think about cremation or burial when choosing a pet insurance plan. However, both cremation and burial can bring about significant expenses. Some pet insurance plans will cover cremation or burial costs when a pet dies from an eligible condition, which is something to consider when choosing a pet insurance plan.
