One other factor to consider is that if your pet dies in such a way that its remains are collected by your local city or county animal control agency (e.g., your pet is hit by a car and found on the road by the authorities, or, in one person's tragic situation, is found by firefighters in a house fire), you may have no control over how these authorities dispose of the body. Such authorities are not equipped to "hold" a pet's remains for the owner to claim. Albuquerque city residents have two options for disposing of deceased pets

Previously it was believed that flushing unused pet medications down the toilet was the preferred method of disposing of them. However, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has found that this method can cause harm to fish as the medication can find its way into water streams. Plus, it may even help bacteria become resistant to certain medications. Moreover, they provide a certification of cremation stating the pet’s name, the owner’s name, the date of cremation, etc., especially when they are given the responsibility of disposing of the remains instead of returning them.Losing a pet or coming across a dead bird or other animal in the yard isn't something we like to think about. Knowing how to properly dispose of a dead animal and taking care of it right away is important, however, for your health and the well-being of everyone else. Here are some basic guidelines. In case of mass or communal pet cremation, more often than not the ashes are not returned to the owner, but disposed of by the crematory itself in a memorial area or facility ground.Flushing small fish: Flushing fish down the toilet is an easy way to dispose of them too, but also controversial. (Don't try this with bigger fish, which may clog your toilet.) Some think flushing a pet fish is irreverent, while others are concerned about diseased fish entering the sewer system. Right now the jury's out on this practice, so for now we recommend either burying the fish or wrapping it up in a plastic bag or leak-proof container and putting it in the trash. (Also, when one of your fish has died, check the health of your other fish in your aquarium and consider changing the tank water.) As an alternative to other less desirable forms of pet disposal such as dumping, rendering factories, etc., Bubbling Well provides for a more humane, while still affordable, choice. This is our "COUNTRY BURIALS" Program; a service used by over 350 veterinarians throughout the Bay Area. The "COUNTRY BURIAL" is a common burial or common cremation; one in which the remains or cremains of your pet is placed in the same opening with those of other pets and then covered with earth. The "COUNTRY BURIAL" DOES NOT take place at Bubbling Well, and there is no visitation to the actual burial site due to the terms of our Use Permit. However we want to invite all pet owners to visit the Park where they can see the "Memorial Pet Register" at the base of a Monument dedicated to those pets buried through the "COUNTRY BURIALS" Program. Consult your personal veterinarian for prices concerning this service. Every dog poops. And every day, pet parents go through the task of cleaning up and disposing of feces. But do you know how to dispose of dog poop properly? Whether you scoop it with a shovel or pick it up with a poop bag, there are a few things that pet parents need to know about the daily ritual. Let's separate the fact from the fiction about disposing of pet poop. Flushing dog poop down the toilet – without a bag, only the waste – is perhaps the best disposal method, says the U.S. and the . Leaving pet waste on the ground increases public health risks by allowing harmful bacteria and nutrients to wash into storm drains, and eventually into local waterbodies. But cat feces should never be flushed, as it may contain Toxoplasma gondii, a parasite that can infect people and animals. Municipal water treatment systems do not always kill this parasite. Leaving dog poop behind is good for the soil. Reality: In order for feces from a carnivorous animal to be used as an effective fertilizer, it has to be fully composted with other materials such as egg shells and grass clippings and allowed to break down over time. America's 78.2 million dogs collectively deposit 10 million tons of waste per year, according to waste clean-up service, . That’s enough to fill some 268,000 tractor trailers. Dog waste cannot harm your health. Reality: Dog feces can carry a host of disease and worms -- including heartworms, whipworms, hookworms, , tapeworms, parvovirus, giardia, salmonella, and even E. coli. This is why it’s imperative to clean it up after Fido does his duty. If not flushing (again only bagless dog poop, never cat waste), it’s best to use a biodegradable bag and place in the garbage. Bagged poop can be flushed. Reality: It can clog home plumbing and stress sewer systems.
