*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.

Important note: Due to the increased energy costs, the pet crematory has increased its prices several times the last few months. We now have to pass at least part of it onto you, too. We collect an energy surcharge of 20.00 € per pet (as of Jan. 2023). Unfortunately, additional surcharges are to be expected. Please check this page for up-to-date information.

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, too.
