*the total weight will be calculated from the weight of your pet, the compulsory cremation bag and optional grave goods, like the favourite blanket or toy of your pet. The weighing in the pet crematory is decisive.

Included in the cremation costs is a certificate of cremation. The price of the individual cremation includes the return of the ashes and the personal handing back to you at our office. If you choose the communal cremation, your pet’s ashes will not be returned to you, but be scattered in a meadow of the forest cemetery.
