How long does it take to cremate a pet?

The time takes to complete a cremation depends mostly on physical size, from 40 minutes for a small pet or a bird to around 3 hours for a Labrador. There is always some time for the chamber to reach the optimum temperature and also for the remains to cool down and be prepared afterwards. The most important thing is that there is only one pet in the chamber at any time, at Peaceful paws pet crematorium we try to complete a Private Cremation the same day or by early the next day, as the day progresses. All cremations are completed individually and each pet is cremated on their own.
