PLPA Creates Cremation Authorization Form, Expands Cremation Standards & Definitions

Families today frequently choose cremation when their pet dies; however, there is often confusion among families, veterinarians and even cremation providers surrounding the definitions of the various options available for cremation and the procedures used in each.

The Pet Loss Professionals Alliance (PLPA), a group of more than 150 pet loss providers and related businesses, has created its own Cremation Authorization Form and updated its Definitions and Standards for the Cremation of Companion Animals to promote uniformity and standardization in pet cremation.
