Rely on us when your Horse or Large Animal Passes Away

As horse, livestock, and pet owners ourselves; we understand the sensitive relationships people develop with their livestock, especially horses. Our livestock truly become members of our family. When they pass on, quick and compassionate removal is paramount. We offer offsite burial, cremation, pet cemetery burial, and necropsy transport.

Transporting your Deceased Animal to be Cremated or buried in the Pet Cemetery:

Hearts & Hooves Livestock Services works closely with local Crematories and Pet Cemeteries. We have done the work for you and will help you find the right place and the best option for your Horse or Livestock Animal. We can help you with pricing, and options. Just give us a call and we are happy to tell you everything you need to know. Once you have found the right place, we will be there to safely transport the animal to the Crematory or Pet Cemetery.

Necropsy Transportation:

A necropsy procedure is also referred to as a post-mortem examination (PME), or autopsy of your dead Animal to determine the cause of death. It is difficult to lose an animal and can be even more difficult not knowing why they died. A necropsy can be the answers that you need for peace of mind in the loss of your loved one. Another reason for Necropsy is when the animal was insured: your insurance company may require necropsy report. Lots of Vets in Northern Colorado can perform the necropsy for you at your property, or we can come and transport your animal to CSU or other Vet Hospitals.
