7-Point Pet Tracker™ Technology

At Patch & Purr, we recognise that every much-loved pet deserves a dignified final send-off in return for their unwavering companionship. As a result, we are proud to offer private cremation services. We guarantee that the ashes that your clients receive are their pet's and only their pet's.

We do this by using our unique tracking technology. If a pet dies at the vet clinic, either by euthanasia or following an unexpected accident, you will be asked to tag the pet with the Pet Tracker™ system tags . 

With complete transparency at every stage of the cremation process, we assign a unique identification number to the beloved pet at the time of booking. This identification follows each pet throughout their journey, with checks and double-checks along the way. At every step of the journey, our team meticulously checks and validates the pet’s identity, allowing us to track their precise location, and stage of their journey at all times. This ensure you absolute peace of mind that your client is receiving their beloved pet’s ashes home, and only their pet.

Vet Portal

As a Patch & Purr Vet Partner, you will gain access to the Patch & Purr Vet Portal system. In the portal, you will log and monitor your pet cremation cases in real time. Simply input the patient and owner details, including pet's name, owner's name, date of death and weight into Vet Portal and this information will be sent directly to your nearest Patch & Purr location.

You can even include the owner's wishes, for example a paw print or lock of fur. This guarantees that your client's queries are taken into account from the moment that their pet enters our care.

The Patch & Purr team will be in touch to arrange a pick-up time.

What's the difference between Private and Communal Cremation?

Private Cremation commemorates your pet’s life by way of:

• Cremation in their own private chamber
• Return of your pet’s ashes
• Dispersal of their private ashes back to earth Private Cremation also allows you to honour your pet with a beautiful keepsake reminder alongside a memorial product to embrace their ashes.

Our brochure and website offer the following options:
• Wooden Vessels
• Memorial Urns
• Garden Urns & Plaques
• Jewellery
• Keepsakes

 Our thoughtful team will take special care of your pet throughout their journey with us. Their journey is commemorated with our Cremation Certificate, Poem and signature XO Candle.


Communal Cremation offers the following for your pet:

• Cremation in a Communal Chamber with other pets
• Dispersal of their combined ashes back to earth

It is important to understand that your pet will be cremated alongside other pets in one designated Communal Chamber and that ashes will not be returned home.

Memorial products and keepsakes are not available with Communal Cremation.
