The Madison Animal Hospital provides cremation services in partnership with Veterinary Support Services (VSS). VSS is based in Turner, Maine and has been providing animal cremation services to veterinary hospitals, animal shelters, and municipalities for more than 18 years. You can choose to have a simple cremation (no remains returned) or a private cremation where each animal is individually cremated and remains returned in a wooden urn with a certificate of private cremation. With a private cremation, only your pet’s remains are returned.
