What to do when your pet dies:  Whether your pet dies at home or at your veterinarian’s clinic, Hamilton’s Pet Services staff can help. Please call (515)-697-3687.

Hamilton’s Pet Services 
specializes in the private cremation of your pet.  This means we cremate only one pet at a time and the cremated remains are returned to you.  Every pet taken into our care will receive an ID number tag which will accompany your pet throughout our facility and is given to you with the cremated remains.

You may place toys, blankets, photos, etc. with your pet.  The only exception would be metal objects and toys with batteries and/or electrical wiring.

Hamilton’s Pet Services 
also carries a wide selection of urns, keepsakes, and other merchandise
available for purchase to honor your pet.
