What Is Aquamation?

Aquamation is a water-based cremation process that is a sought after alternative to flame-based cremation. When a pet is aquamated, they are placed inside the aquamation chamber, alkaline salt and warm water are added and cycle through the machine - ultimately creating a serene environment. Following a complete water cycle, we retrieve your pet’s mineral ash and an eco-friendly effluent.


It's not just an innovative process; it's a natural, respectful way to lay your beloved pet companion to rest. With minimal energy consumption and no emission of harmful gases, aquamation stands as a gentle, forward-thinking choice.

How Much Does It Cost to Cremate a Pet in San Diego?

Depending on the weight of your pet, the range of costs for pet cremation varies. At Peaceful Veterinary Care, our individual cremation package starts from $300 for a weight limit of 0-49 lb. The price range of communal cremation packages start at $200. If the weight of your pet is above 150 lbs, you have to reach out for more detailed personalized costs. 

How Long Does Aquamation Take for Pets?

The process of aquamation is lengthy compared to traditional forms of cremation. The chamber is heated to approximately 180 degrees Fahrenheit, and inside it, warm water (95%) and alkali (5%) cycle gently. It takes around 18-24 hours for the whole process to complete, and it leaves us with the remains of your pet and some nutrient-rich effluent.
