What we think you should know:
There is no regulating agency for pet cremation in Maryland, and there are many misconceptions about pet cremations and the terminology used by those in the business. The goal of All Pet Crematory, Inc. is to educate pet owners so that they can make an informed decision for the care of their beloved pet.
The definitions below provide pet owners with information regarding the different types of cremations performed in the pet cremation industry in Maryland.
Private Cremation is when only one pet is placed in the retort (cremation machine) at a time. That pet is cremated alone and the pets' cremated remains are then removed from the retort, processed, and placed in a temporary container or urn. The cremated remains are returned back to the pets family. Private cremations are the only cremations that All Pet Crematory, Inc. provides to the public.
Individual Cremation can have different meanings. For some cremation providers it means only one pet is cremated at a time. For other providers, it means that several pets (between 3 and 5) are placed in different areas of the retort, sometimes in separate cremation pans if the animals are small enough. If more than one animal is placed in the retort for cremation, the possibility exists that the cremated remains will be co-mingled during the process. If you are offered an individual cremation by a cremation provider or a vet, be sure you question what the term individual means. Insure you are getting the service that you want for your beloved pet.
Mass Cremation is when many animals are placed in the retort together. This is the manner in which veterinarians dispose of animals when the owner does not want the ashes returned. Typically, with this choice the cremated remains are disposed of by the crematory.
