The respect for all living things 

This is one of Metropolitan Emergency & Specialty Center's core values that is practiced at all life stages - even after we said goodbye to a beloved pet. When your pet passes away, we have the resources to provide you with the necessary aftercare services.

End of Life Services

Cremation is a popular choice for owners looking to put a beloved pet to rest. We can arrange to have your pet’s remains cremated with one of our preferred providers. If you choose to cremate the remains privately, the ashes can be returned to you afterward.

You may also have the option of purchasing a decorative urn or box for storing the ashes. 

Resources for Grieving Pet Owners

Our veterinarians and staff know that the mourning process takes time. Sometimes we need extra love and support during these difficult times. For more information on how to cope with the loss of a pet friend, please visit:

At Metropolitan Emergency & Specialty Center, we don’t just care about your pet - we care about you too.
