Xtreme Taxidermy - Pet Preservation Process
Xtreme Taxidermy affords pet owners the opportunity to make a lasting memorial of their pets...
The freeze dry preservation process leaves the pet looking very natural.
We proudly offers this special service to pet owners who are looking for an alternative to burial or cremation for their pets.
When cremation or burial does not feel
like the right decision for you and your pet, freeze dry preservation may be the right choice.
Pets are a very special part of our family. Freeze dry preservation affords pet owners the opportunity to make a lasting memorial. This process keeps your pet intact. Your pet will retain its original size and shape in which it is posed indefinitely.
We recommend a sleeping or a lying down position. Your pet will look very natural and even close up it will be difficult to tell any difference at all except for the lack of movement. With a little care, your pet can be held, carried, or even gently petted.
If you feel freeze dry preservation is the
right choice for you and your family, please contact us for further instructions on how to prepare and ship your pet.
FREEZE DRY INSTRUCTIONS:
When your pet has passed, you should put the animal in a plastic bag and freeze immediately. If you do not have the means to do this, please contact your Veterinarian to make arrangements.
The pet will need to be shipped frozen, overnight. Please call us to make shipping arrangements with UPS or FedEx. Once the pet has been received and the desired pose has been decided upon, the pet is put into the freeze chamber for processing.
Small pets may take up to 2 months, large pets, 6 months.
