Thread: How to dispose of a dogs body?

  1. #1

    Default How to dispose of a dogs body?

    Can anyone tell me the options for disposing of a dogs body(particularly for someone in suburban Melbourne)? The only options i know of so far are to pay a vet or have it cremated. I've looked at the councils website but it doesn't say anything about it.

    thanks

    Cant you just bury it? Thats what we have always done over the years... then again we don't live in the city... don't know if it is different or not...

    My ex buried his dog in his suburban backyard. I had mine picked up and cremated. I then spread her ashes in the river.

    I don't really have anywhere suitable for burial

    Oh hope nothing is wrong with Jack the only ways I know are what have been mentioned. I'll be getting mine cremated though.

    He's still with us thanks Jadie, unfortunately not too good at the moment, has a very swollen belly and puffing a bit. Although he's proven the vets wrong a couple of times now, my grandmother had heart issues and swelling was a sign that things were going downhill, so although i haven't been to the vet this time, i don't think he's got much time left

    Oh no I'm so sorry to hear this MMJ , crossing all fingers and paws here that he proves the vet wrong again.

    As for burial , you can dispose of a body at your local tip

    Sorry to hear he is not well ...Do you have friends with rural property? We have a few extra horses and dogs buried at our place. They all have trees to "mark" their place. It is something i do not mind doing at all for my friends.
