petcremateOkanagan Pet Cremation has been helping Shuswap Veterinary Clinic clients with their pet loss needs for more than 15 years.  They offer private and communal cremation in a peaceful, rural setting.

The doctors and staff at Shuswap Veterinary Clinic are pet owners too and we know how difficult this time can be.  Grieving is a normal emotional feeling after the loss of a pet, yet there can also be other emotions we experience such as sadness, relief, guilt or even anger. Sometimes we have difficulty during the grieving process and it is comforting to know we can access resources to help us through these times.
