How can I be sure that I will correctly get my pet’s ashes back?

Reputable and responsible pet cremation providers use a tracking system to prevent identification mistakes from happening during the cremation process. The tracking system typically involves a tag with a unique number. The tag is assigned upon receipt of the body, and is not separated from the body throughout the entire cremation process. Keeping the tag and the remains together throughout the process ensures that the ashes of the right pet are returned to the correct owner.
