An Emerging Aftercare Option: Water-based Cremation

CE Event Information

  • Description:
    After the death of an animal the aftercare options commonly considered include burial (if legally permissible in that municipality) and flame cremation. In this age of environmental care and concern there is an awareness about the contribution of greenhouse gases into our environment in association with both of those aftercare choices. One emerging option for aftercare is water-based cremation. Although the process has been understood for a very long time, it has not been a service readily available until recent years. Water-based cremation is also a service that can be offered in-house by veterinary practices.

    In this segment Kathleen Cooney, DVM, CHPV, CCFP introduces us to water-based cremation and explains how it works, the advantages of this aftercare option compared to burial and flame cremation, as well as other practical considerations.
