We are experts in dead animal removal, and take our job seriously. When removing dead animals, we do a COMPLETE job — not only do we remove the dead animal from your home or yard, we also decontaminate the area, deodorize it, and dispose of the animal or cremate it. If you aren't sure whether the stench in your house is due to a rotting carcass or another reason, we can sniff it out with our noses from our years of experience. We remove dead raccoons, dead opossums, dead skunks, dead squirrels, dead birds, even dead dogs and cats. We frequently remove dead rodents from inside walls, because poison kills rats and mice, who die in your house. We completely solve your dead animal problem by taking these steps:

  • Sniff out the dead animal if it is somewhere in your home
  • When necessary, for example if the animal is in a wall or under your house, cut a hole to remove the animal
  • Remove the dead animal, safely and completely (and seal the hole if needed)
  • Finish the job by decontaminating and deodorizing your home
  • Properly dispose of the dead animal through incineration or other means
  • Prevent it from happening again by finding out how they got in your house

Dead animal carcass removal is specialty work. Sometimes the job is simple, such as a dead opossum in the yard, in which case we can simply wear our gloves and respirator mask, bag the carcass, and take it away for incineration. Sometimes this is more complex, such as when the dead animal is under a home crawlspace, under a porch or deck or shed. Or if the animal is larger, such as a dog or a deer. The most complex cases are dead animals inside the house. The animal may have died inside the attic, or down in the walls, or the duct work, or any other part of the architecture. You may have a bad smell in your home, and you're not even sure what's causing it. We've removed not just dead animals, but rotting food, bad mold, etc. We specialize in locating the source of the smell, and we very commonly cut a hole in the ceiling or wall to remove the animal. We remove every bit of the carcass, mop up the juices, vacuum the maggots, spray it and wipe it down with disinfectant, cleaner, and we repair the hole we cut. In some cases we use ozone machines to neutralize odor.

Myrtle Beach Dead Animal Tip: How to Dispose of a Dead Dog

There are several reasons dogs are referred to as man’s best friend, ranging from their unshakable loyalty to their unconditional love to their companionship till the very end. That’s why losing your dog feels like you’ve lost someone so close to your heart, and getting through the emotional turmoil will take some time. But in the meantime, you need to dispose of the dead body because, within a couple of hours, your dog’s carcass will become a breeding ground for harmful bacteria while giving off a powerful stench.

When it comes to disposing of a dead dog, there are several options. In this post, we consider some of them. But before we delve right into it, let’s set the preambles straight.


Checking for signs of life
Before you proceed with the disposal of the dead dog, you have to be certain that the dog is dead. Here are some signs to look out for.

Place two fingers (not your thumb) on the dog’s chest to check for a pulse.
Listen for any sign of breathing.
Check the dog’s gum color. If it’s pink, then the dog is still alive.
Check to see if the dog is stiff. If it is, that’s a sure sign of death.

Preparing the Dog’s Remains
Once you’re certain that the dog is dead, here is what you should do:

Wear gloves before touching the carcass. A dead dog releases bodily fluids from its openings, including genitals, anus, and mouth. These fluids are a breeding ground for bacteria.
Wrap the dog in a blanket or bed sheet and put it in a plastic trash bag. Double the bag.
Seal up the bag by tying it up.
The remains should be kept in a freezer until you’re ready to dispose of the body. You can use an additional plastic bag if there’s no freezer to store it in. Disposal should take place as soon as possible - preferably less than 4 to 6 hours because that’s when the carcass starts to smell bad.

Disposal Options

Before you opt for burying, check to confirm that your local laws allow it. Some districts do not allow the burial of dogs, especially in major cities.

When selecting a burial spot on your property, choose a place that’s unlikely to be excavated in the near future. Many people choose areas in the garden. Also, make sure your selected spot isn’t susceptible to flooding to prevent exposing the carcass. Also, the gravesite must be far away from water sources. So if you live close to a river, pond, or stream, you might have to consider another disposal option.

Measure how large your dog is so you know the approximate grave’s width. In terms of depth, the grave should be at least 2 to 3 feet deep. A deep grave prevents scavengers from pulling out the body. It also reduces the possibility of erosion washing off the carcass.

To ensure a fast decomposition, ensure that your dog is buried with something breathable like a blanket or towel. Using plastic or anything air-tight is not recommended.

Cremation involves the burning, at high temperatures, to ashes, of a dead body. It is a great disposal option because it obliterates all harmful pathogens in the carcass. More so, it reduces the volume of the body by over 95%. Ash takes far less space, and it can either be scattered or preserved as a memorial of your beloved dog.

After preparing your dog’s remains, you can have it sent to the crematory, where your dog’s body will be placed in the cremation unit and subjected to temperatures up to 1400 - 1800 degrees Fahrenheit. The cremated remains will be gray or white ashes of your dog.

Wrap Up
Over the past few years, an increasing number of dog owners have been opting for cremation. However, burying remains the most popular option. Whatever option you choose, ensure it is legal in your district and done the right way. That way, you can take solace in the fact that you paid proper final respect to your belo We service nearby towns such as Myrtle Beach, Conway, North Myrtle Beach, Little River, Surfside Beach, Loris, Aynor, Carolina Forest, Socastee, Garden City, Atlantic Beach, Forestbrook, Bucksport, Briarcliffe Acres, Red Hill,.
