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.

Nashville Dead Animal Tip: How to Dispose of a Dead Dog

It can be incredibly hard on everyone when the family pet passes on- often, this passing can happen without much notice, making it both difficult emotionally and physically to deal with. If your family dog has passed away, especially during a long holiday weekend, or in the middle of the night, there are multiple ways to ensure that Fido is properly taken care of, buried with respect, and doesn’t end up compromising your family’s health or well-being in the process.

The first step, of course, as in dealing with any dead animal, is to make sure that you are properly protected. Animal corpses will immediately release all their bodily fluids after death, making it of the utmost importance that you are protecting yourself. First, curl your dog up into a fetal position, as if it is sleeping, and wrap it in a towel or blanket. After making sure it is wrapped up, you might want to place your dog into a plastic garbage bag, to hold any further fluids, as well as ensure that the body does not start to smell and attract flies or other animals.

After making sure that your dog is properly protected from the elements, as well as flies, you should contact your local veterinarian’s office. Usually, even during weekends or after hours, there will be a number that you can contact, to check where to send your dog’s remains. Keep in mind, as well, that if you decide to send your dog’s remains to be buried somewhere else, or cremated, you should attach a tag to the bag with your name, your pet’s name, and your contact information.

If there are extenuating circumstances preventing burial for any extended length of time, you should keep in mind that your pet’s body should remain cold. Rigor mortis often sets in shortly after death, with decomposition happening within a couple of hours. If possible, keep your dog in a refrigerator or freezer, where the decomposition will be kept at bay for a little while, until you can get it to a vet. If this option is not available to you, you may also keep the dog in your basement or garage- however, be warned that you should only use this option for six hours maximum, as the body will start to smell and, within a short amount of time, the smell will spread through your home, becoming severe.

While some owners prefer to send their dog’s remains to a vet or other disposal service, many hope to bury their family pet on their property. Before proceeding with this, always check your local laws to ensure that this is a legal, feasible option. Prior to burial, remove any plastic bags that you might have wrapped your dog in- though keeping a blanket around him is still ok, as it will decompose over time- and make sure that you bury him at least three feet deep to keep rain from washing the top soil away, or other animals from unearthing him.
