What to Consider

All Cavalier owners are different, some will find themselves uncomfortable at the thought of donating their pet’s body for postmortem, perhaps preferring to bury them in a favourite spot in the garden.

There are other owners, however, who would feel positive about volunteering their dog for post-mortem examination, as long as they know they will have their pet’s ashes back and they can decide on their last resting place. The death of a much loved Cavalier is a very emotional occasion and decisions made on the spur of the moment may later be regretted.

Participation in this scheme is something that is best thought through carefully before the loss of the pet occurs.
