Can all types of animals have their skulls preserved?
Not all animals can have skull preservation. Often young animals don’t have fully formed skulls, which means that their bone density is soft and unable to withstand the preservation process. We can advise on whether or not your pet is suitable for skull preservation by filling out the enquiry form and including your pet’s age.
If I only want my pet's skull to be preserved, what happens to the rest of my pet?
Once the skull preservation of your pet is complete, we can assist in the cremation or safe disposal of any remains. Alternatively, our services can be combined. For further information about cremation services, wet preservation, ashes or hair to diamonds and memorial glass keepsakes, please see our FAQs on each of our pet aftercare services.
Can you preserve all of the skeleton?
At this time we are unable to offer the preservation and articulation of entire skeletons. We hope to be able to offer these services in the future but please don’t hesitate to discuss these options with the RIP team.
What should I do when my pet passes away?
To prepare your pet for any kind of preservation, we recommend that he or she be placed in a freezer as soon as possible. Before placing your pet in the freezer you will need to wrap him or her up securely to protect against freezer burn. This could be done with plastic bags or a cloth shroud.
How long can my pet stay in the freezer while I make arrangements?
Your pet can be stored safely for many years as long as you have used good quality freezer storage bags.
How long will the process take?
Please allow up to 2 months to complete the preservation of your pet. Each animal, just like in life, is different and will require its own tender loving care to ensure that you have a beautiful preserved momento that will stand the test of time.
How do I get my pet to you?
We are happy to work with you to coordinate the delivery of your pet to our Northcote based studio in Melbourne VIC. Alternatively we can discuss shipping options with you based on your location. Services are available to anyone anywhere in Australia and transport options will be discussed at the time of your enquiry.
