We encourage veterinarians to reflect on a few questions surrounding their hospital’s practices when approaching end-of-life and afterlife care:
1. Is your hospital a place for healing or a place for end-of-life?
2. From your pet parent’s perspective, how would you feel about a vet hospital who embraced end-of-life care as a specialty service to be referred out in order to make death beautiful and peaceful?
a. How many clients have you lost after euthanasia because of their inability to see you or your hospital again? Is one too many?
3. How would you feel if you learned your grandfather’s, mother’s, or brother’s hospital only endorsed a wholesale crematory and/or refused to work with any other facilities to protect their profit on death?
a. Would you trust a doctor making life and death decisions knowing they are profiting off the death outside the clinical implications?
“The first technical advance in decades for the after-life arrangement of pet remains is now available…It follows then, that it is also the ethical responsibility of veterinarians to offer [Aquamation].”
Kent Kruse, DVM – Trends – Alkaline Hydrolysis
“When faced with the overwhelming evidence of the sustainability of this process over flame based cremation and the level of care provided by [Heavenly Paws Pet Aquamation] I realized that as a responsible practitioner I had to at least offer my clients a choice.”
Greg Helton, DVM – Implementation of Alkaline Hydrolysis in the Veterinary Hospital
What is Aquamation?
Aquamation is the trade name for a process called Alkaline Hydrolysis. Simply put, it’s a more gentle and environmentally friendly water-based pet cremation service. The pet’s remains are gently placed into an alkali bath where natural decomposition is accelerated through the use of heat, salt and alkalinity yielding the same ash received from conventional cremation.
- Because the process is gentler, ~20% more of the pet’s ashes are returned.
- Because the process is more eco-friendly, pollution is eliminated. Every 5th pet served saves enough fuel to drive across the USA.
- The Aquamation service itself lasts ~24 hours. Depending on the size of the pet receiving disposition via Aquamation, it may take anywhere from 24-72+ hours to naturally dry the ashes before they are ready to be returned.
