Water Cremation at Pets4Life Animal Hospital Highland Park, IL

Pet Cremation by Water is an earth friendly alternative to fire cremation. Pets4Life Animal Hospital has opted to partner with this company as it offers a gentler approach for pets. Water or acqua cremation (technically called Alkaline Hydrolysis) is a process mimicking Mother Nature’s course when a pet is laid to rest in the soil except it happens in hours instead of years or decade.

A combination of gentle slow water flow, temperature, and alkalinity are used to accelerate the breakdown of organic materials. Water cremation uses a solution of 95% water and 5% alkali. It is eco-friendly, has no direct emissions of harmful greenhouse gases, and there is no burning of fossil fuels. The sterile water is returned to the earth providing nourishment. The remains are lighter in color, have the consistency resembling a bag of flour and the cremains are placed in a bamboo cylinder urn. We believe it is the better choice for the environment and the air we all breathe.  Please feel free to inquire if you would like further information.
