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.

Syracuse Dead Animal Tip:

What to Do with a Dead Dog 

What would you do if you found a dead dog in your yard? If you're like most people, you're clueless! Well, the right thing to do is dependent on a variety of factors. Some of which include: Is it your pet or a stray dog? Is it on your property or in a public space? Is it showing signs of life or not? In this post, we explore the subtleties surrounding this issue. 

A Dead Dog in a Public Space

If you see a dead dog near the road or in a public space, you should not go near it. In most cases, a dead dog beside the road means it's been hit by an oncoming vehicle. Dead animals pose health risks - that's why keeping a distance is the best way to ensure your safety. Thereafter, call your local animal service. They will deal with the carcass. 

A Stray Dog on Your Property

If you find a stray dog in your yard, properly assess the situation. If it is dead, keep your distance from it. But if you notice the dog might still be alive, you can administer first aid to it. Make sure you wear gloves to avoid direct contact with the injured or ill animal. You can then contact your local animal service to see if the dog can be treated and reconnected with its owner. 

If you are certain that the dog is already dead, you can take the carcass to the veterinarian for proper disposal. 

The Dead Dog is Your Pet

Losing your pet dog is a painful experience. But since humans have a longer lifespan than dogs, it's something you're likely to experience at a point in your life. The death of a beloved pet can cause you emotional pain, but you must keep your cool. 

If you suspect that your pet dog is dead, here's what to do:

  1. Assess the situation - Maybe the dog isn't dead yet - just maybe. That's why you have to assess the situation. Look for a heartbeat to determine if the dog suffered cardiac arrest. If so, perform CPR to resuscitate it. You can then take it to your vet. If the dog is certainly dead, then move on to the next point to find out what's next. 
  2. Ask for help - If you lose your pet dog, memories of the fun times you had together will come rushing in. It will be painful to watch, and it's best you do not go through this situation alone. Contact family or friends who can help you deal with the remains, and also provide emotional support to you. Having someone else handle the remains will enable you to focus on maintaining your emotional health. 
  3. Dispose of the Remains - There are several options when it comes to disposing of the remains of your dead dog. Here are some of them:
    • Home burial - Some dog owners choose to bury their dogs at home. This option is the cheapest of all. Before you bury, ensure you know and follow the guidelines stipulated in your municipal for the burying of dog carcasses. Ensure that the grave is no less than three feet deep and far from water sources. 
    • Cremation - Dog cremation is a great way to memorialize your beloved bet. You can either store your dog's ashes or scatter them, based on your preference. Most people opt to store the ashes in keepsake items like a piece of jewelry. The cost of dog cremation can vary widely; from $30 to $250. The price is mainly determined by the cremation method and the size of the pet.
    • Pet Cemeteries - This is the most expensive option. This is because of the high cost of a coffin, as well as a burial plot. But If you can afford it, it is a great way to honor the memory of your dog. You can even have a memorial marker erected over the gravesite. 

As you can now see, how you deal with a dead dog is dependent on the specific scenario. But as a rule of thumb, you should not come in direct contact with a dead dog that's not your pet. If your pet dog dies, there are many options for handling the carcass. But most importantly, ensure you effectively manage the emotional pain.
