dead animal removal

Hi, thank you for taking a peek at what Cincinnati Dead Animal can do for you in terms of nuisance wildlife control and dead animal removal. We are Ohio's most trusted professionals when it comes to the removal of dead animals, and the restoration of properties to their former, pre-pest glory. Our technicians carry commercial liability insurance, and are fully insured and licensed to work on both residential and commercial properties. Are you tired of walking into your home to be met by the stench of a dead nuisance animal? Pests can get into the tiniest, most awkward cracks and crevices inside residential and commercial buildings, often creating nests and – in turn – death chambers that can be difficult to find. Our specialist technicians are regularly trained on the best practices of dead animal removal, and can only locate the body, but also remove it, decontaminate the area, remove any traces of bad odors, and fully restore infested areas to ensure there are no biological hazards remaining. This task can be a rather upsetting one, especially for the faint-hearted, but we promise to make the entire process as easy, quick, and stress-free as we possibly can, eliminating the need for you to call other contractors, such as repairmen or decorators, once we’re done. Any damage we cause, such as cutting drywall to retrieve carcasses behind, is repaired and fully restored so that you would never have known we were there. Give us a call to find out more – 513-342-5190.

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.

Cincinnati Dead Animal Tip: Dead Dog Removal Services, Who Do I Call

If your dog has recently died, it can be a traumatic and emotional experience. Your immediate thought is probably not disposing of the body. However, like all animals, the body will begin to decay rapidly. Alternatively, you may find a dog dead on your property. One potential option is to bury the dog. That’s fine if you live in a rural area or you have a large garden. However, there can be legislation prohibiting the burial of a dead animal on your property in urban and suburban neighborhoods. You may also get complaints from neighbors, especially if scavengers dig the body up. If you’re, therefore, unable to bury the dog, you’ll need to contact someone to remove and dispose of the body. Here are your options:

Local veterinarian
Vets routinely deal with the disposal of dead animals. Suppose you’re contacting them during the day. In that case, they’ll be able to arrange the collection of the body and storage before burial or cremation. Most vets have a working relationship with the local cremation center. They will be able to organize the cremation and delivery of ashes. Alternatively, they can put you in contact with the local pet cemetery. There is a cost for collecting the body, so you may choose to deliver the body yourself. If you do so, remember to lay plastic bags and cardboard in your car during transit. If the dog isn’t yours, vets will also detect if the dog was chipped and contact the owner. They will then be responsible for the dead dog going forward.

Cremation center
If you want to skip contacting the vet, you can directly contact the cremation center. They may be able to handle the dog’s collection, or at least, the disposal of the body. Cremation centers offer two forms of cremation: private cremation and communal cremation. In the former, your dog is cremated alone, and you will receive their ashes back. Your dog will be cremated with other pets in the latter, and the ashes will be scattered in a natural location.

Pet cemetery
Like contacting the cremation center, calling the pet cemetery eliminates the need to go through a vet. They’ll often have removal services or can put you in contact with people who can help. Through the pet cemetery, you can organize a dog’s burial alongside additional features, such as plaques and headstones.

Local animal control company
Local animal control companies routinely remove and dispose of dead animals. They have the equipment for handling a dead animal – a vector for disease – and disposing of the body. Often the animals are incinerated. There will be a charge for the removal and disposal. However, this is often one of the cheapest options available. If you’re struggling to know what to do, it can be worth giving them a call. They’re experts, after all.

Local authorities
Many local authorities have departments that handle the disposal of dead animals. Some jurisdictions, such as New York, even offer the free removal and disposal of dead animals, including dogs. They’ll also be able to advise on the burial of the animal if that’s an option you’re considering. The final option is to use garbage services for removal. For an animal the size of a dog, you should contact your local authorities to ensure this is acceptable. Otherwise, you may be rejected or even face a penalty. Leaving dead animals by the side of the road is likely to attract the attention of other animals. The benefit of using a governmental service is the low cost. There may be a small fee, but often it is a free service. Therefore, if your dog has passed away, but you’re struggling for money, consider this option. Contacting the various options won’t cost anything. So, it is often sensible to call multiple people and evaluate your options. However, if you’re set on a proper burial or want to keep the ashes, going through your local vet is likely the best course of action. Alternately, many animal control services offer cost-effective service fast.
