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.

Springfield Dead Animal Tip:

What to do with a dead dog

Finding a dead dog could be unsettling, especially if the dog is a pet. If you find a dead dog on your property, you should be able to take important steps towards its removal and disposal. We highlight the steps you should take below. Since the situation changes drastically if the dog is your pet, we distinguish the steps by those you should take if it is a pet and if it isn't. 

What to do if the dog is a pet

Confirm the death

You should begin by confirming that the dog is actually dead. If you found your dog lying dead on your property, you should confirm the death with a local veterinarian. The dog may not be dead and could be revived. 

Before going to the vet, you could also check for the heartbeat of the dog. If you think that the dog needs resuscitation, you can administer CPR. You could also administer other first-aid measures that the dog could need. 

Seek help

The death of a pet dog is a particularly difficult period where support is needed. Speak to friends and family and get all the help you need during this period. You may need friends and family for emotional support during this period. You may also need them to help you deal with the remains in the immediate period of the passing. 

If you cannot handle this period emotionally and physically, seek help and get the support you need. 

Make burial arrangements

You can call your local vet to make the burial arrangements for the remains of your dog. You can get in touch with a vet or pet crematorium for the disposal of the remains of the dog. Vets and pet crematoriums offer services that include picking up the remains, preparing them, and disposing of them according to your chosen method. 

The methods of disposal of the remains of pet dogs include cremation, home burials, and burials in pet cemeteries. The different methods have unique appeals and limitations. With cremation, the owners can get the ashes and could memorialize the dog. Cremation may be communal or private. The limitation of this method is that it can be expensive. 

Local vets are bound to provide full burial services. If you will be opting for home burials, find out about regulations that guide the process. You may not be allowed to bury your dog on a property that you do not own. Even though home burials are a cost-effective method, they could be highly limited by local regulations. 

Burials in pet cemeteries are an alternative for home burials. The dog owner gets to safely part with the remains and memorialize their beloved pet. 

What to do if the dog is not your pet

If the dog is not a pet, your concern should be fully on the safe and efficient disposal of the carcass. You could get professional carcass removal services or do the removal yourself. If you will be removing and disposing of the dog without professional help, you will need protective materials like gloves, masks, and overalls. 

You should also be aware of the regulations guiding the disposal of dog carcasses if the dog was not a pet. If burial is allowed in your area, you could simply bury the dog. You could also send the carcass to a landfill if that is allowed in your area. 

Dog carcasses could also be disposed of by incineration. This method is particularly effective for the disposal of dogs that died from a disease.

You could also try tracing the owners of the dog if that is possible. Check for tags or any identification features you can use to trace the owner.

It is important to discard dog carcasses as soon as they are found. This is to prevent the natural decomposition process and the associated negative consequences that will follow. 

When you find a dead dog, whether it is your pet or not, you should aim to dispose of the carcass swiftly. If it was your pet, and you cannot handle the process, do get professional help. Also, get the emotional and physical support you need to process the passing. If the dog was not your pet, you can dispose of the carcass according to any of the accepted methods of disposing of carcasses in your area.
