Aquamation Aftercare

St. Francis Pet Clinic is proud to now offer a peaceful and natural way to handle your pet's remains.  

Aquamation is a natural process known as alkaline hydrolysis.  Using water flow, temperature and alkalinity, it is more like natural decomposition than any other method.  Aquamation just accelerates the process.  

Aquamation is a totally green, environmentally friendly technology.  Unlike traditional cremation, there are no toxic emissions and no contribution to green house gases. 

Alkaline hydrolysis has a carbon footprint that is only one-tenth of what fire-based cremation produces, cuts natural gas use by 90%, carbon dioxide emissions by 90%, electricity by 66%, and is 100% mercury free.

The remaining water is not only benign, it is beneficial.  Used in the environment, it gives soil back their nutrients in a natural, non-chemical way.

It is a gentle process, preserving your pet's dignity. Making this environmentally conscious choice is a wonderful way for you and St. Francis Pet Clinic to honor your beloved pet.

Peaceful Pet Aquamation also offers no cost grief counseling.  Click here to visit their website to learn more about the process, watch a video on the process, or request one complimentary grief counseling session.
