I had mine cremated and I thought the "finished product" would be a bag of powdered ash. When the person who dealt with the cremation showed it me "finished product", the bone shape of my chinchilla was still all there. I could see the head and the backbone... It's quite creepy actually :/ But I left everything intact and kept it in a closed box.

I'm so very sorry that you went through this. A few pet crematoriums do consider that to be cremation. But for the majority of them a powder-like consistency is considered to be the norm.

I could not bring myself to watch them sweep out the chamber until the last time we went (in November). It was honestly very hard to watch them complete the cremation process, as I did see our kitties skeleton before they swept the chamber. I probably won't be out by the machine next time.

Its largely depended on the animal. Our 2 or 3 hamsters were buried in our yard although I think in my city, its actually illegal to bury animals on your property, and our yard is tiny so anything larger is sorta out of the question anyways. With the various guinea pigs and the budgie we've lost, I believe we've always used veterinary disposal services and have not asked for the ashes back.
