Horse Cremation / Large Animals

Providing pet cremation services with a caring touch

When you lose your horse, or a beloved large animal companion, it can be just like losing your best friend.

What can be even more painful, is that until recently, there have been very few options for handling your special friends when they pass away simply due to their size.

The good news is that now you can cremate your horse, or other large animal friend, which offers a wonderful alternative to a ranch burial, or having to send your loved one to the tallow company.

In addition to horses & ponies, we can help you with:

  • Llamas / Alpacas
  • Cows
  • Mules / Donkeys / Burros
  • Pigs, Sheep, Goats
  • Kangaroos and more

Cremation is a wonderful option to perpetuate your horse’s memory because:

  • We only perform whole horse cremation
  • Each cremation is a private cremation
  • Your horse’s cremains are returned to you in a container for ceremonial spreading or in a wooden urn for display

Losing a horse is especially tough

Coping with the loss of a horse is an emotional experience, because on top of your loss, there is the sensitive nature of handling and hauling a horse for cremation. We know that, and make every effort to handle your horse with the best of care.

All of our staff is dedicated to providing a caring and comforting service to you and your horse, and we hope you will contact us should you need any help or have any questions.

  • PAYMENT: via Credit Card before pick up or a Personal Check is required at the time of pick up.

Delivery of Cremains

Turn around time for an Equine cremation is one week.

There are a variety of ways to have your horse’s cremains delivered back to you.

  1. You may make an appointment to visit our Paso Robles facility to receive your horse’s cremains
  2. We are happy to deliver to your equine veterinary office (if in the San Luis Obispo County area, Bakersfield, or Visalia area)
  3. *Certain days and areas only apply*

Disclosures/Guarantees:

  • We, Eden Memorial Pet Care, understand that coping with the loss of a horse is an emotional experience. With the sensitive nature of handling and hauling a horse for cremation, we take every effort to handle your horse with gentleness. All of our staff is dedicated to providing a caring and comforting service to you and your horse
  • The process of pick up and trailering a deceased horse is an extremely sensitive procedure. When Eden Memorial’s representative is preparing the horse for trailering, we use a process called “winching.” Due to the size of the animal, this is the proper way to move the horse into the trailer. We will do our best to ensure the utmost of consideration
  • During this process, we recommend that you have someone to support you emotionally or someone you trust to be there in your place

We track your pet through the entire process

You will always know what is going on with your animal companion, because at Eden Memorial Pet Care, we work with Mobile BIS and use PCS (Pet Cremation System), a revolutionary pet tracking and identification system.

This system provides each pet with a “barcode” that follows each pet throughout the entire cremation process and gives both clients and veterinary hospitals “live time” status of what is happening to the animal.

This gives everyone piece of mind.

Kind Words

“I wanted to let you and your staff know how much I appreciate making, what could have been a difficult day, tolerable.

The personal service, clear communication, and organization were all above the ‘call of duty.’

The professional way your business is run sets a very high standard in the industry.”
