How much does pet cremation cost?

The cost of cremating a pet depends on a number of factors, so it is not a simple question to answer.

When your pet passes away, one of the first things you may want to find out is how much does it cost to have your pet cremated. When you talk to your vet or pet crematorium they will be able to give you a clearer idea of what it will cost to cremate your pet.

Firstly, you will be given the choice of whether you would prefer an individual or communal cremation. Individual cremations are likely to be more expensive than communal. The second consideration is the size of the pet. The cost of cremating a dog, for example, would most likely be more expensive than the cost of cremating a cat or the cost of cremating a rabbit or guinea pig. The cost of cremating a large dog would be more than for a small dog. The cremation cost for a horse or a pony would be more than for smaller pets.

Crematoria usually provide a scale of charges based on some general pet sizes. You will be offered a choice of urn or container for your pet’s ashes to be returned to you in which will also affect the price. You may also be offered additional services. These could be things like paw-prints of your pet or a fur clipping. If you have chosen a personalised urn or keepsake there may be additional charges for the personalisation service.

As there are so many factors and options that can have an effect on the price we recommend you talk to your vet and some pet crematoria before deciding. This will enable you to compare the costs and services offered so you can find something that is right for you. You will find a searchable directory of pet crematoria on our website here.
