What is Pet Aquamation?
Aquamation is a form of pet cremation also known as alkaline hydrolysis, water-based cremation, and bio-cremation. Aquamation uses warm water, time, and alkali to mimic the natural decomposition of tissue that occurs after burial. In nature, this process can take years, but with the advancement in aquamation technology, this process now takes less than 20 hours.
