Our precious dog is on his last journey .. breaks my heart, but it is going to be inevitable in the next 6 months. 13yrs have flown by ..

This is our first dog after we came to this country - what do you do with the remains? In my native country, we had a choice of burying in the backyard ( the properties were much larger ). Is that ok in Palo Alto? Or do we have to go in for cremation?

Where can I get this information?

Ask your vet.

When our cat died a year ago, our vet let us take him home and bury him in our backyard, provided we would bury him at a certain minimum depth. I don't remember how much it was, because my husband took care of the digging, but that's what we did.

Sorry to hear you are about to lose your beloved dog. Take care.

you can also check with the SPCA or city Animal Control services as they would know.

Also check out this website Web Link

They also offer euthanasia services when the time comes if you don't want your pet to suffer needlessly.

Sorry to hear about this. Just think of all the joy your dog brought you over these many years.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
