dead animal removal

Welcome to Chicago Dead Animal! It is our number one goal to eliminate pest and dead animal problems in residential and business premises – and we do this by eliminating every aspect of the problem. Our team of friendly, highly trained, and properly licensed and insured controllers will start by locating the dead or alive animal(s) before then coming up with a plan on how to retrieve it. There are laws dictating the handling of certain animals, specifically dead animals, but we take the worry out of the process by being fully trained in those laws, which often change from state-to-state, and can even change from city-to-city. We can locate and remove all dead nuisance wildlife, including birds, squirrels, raccoons, opossums, foxes, rodents, and more. Just give us a call and tell us what the problem is and we’ll take care of the rest. Our specialist team promises to find and remove dead animals, and then completely decontaminate the area so that no biological hazards remain. Along with that, our highly effective deodorising process ensures that no nasty smells linger in the building – a common and very unwanted side effect of having animals, live or dead, on the property. Dealing with these scenarios are unpleasant, and can cause emotional distress to those who would much rather not deal with such a situation – but that’s where we come in. In just one visit, we can locate, remove, sanitise, and then restore – and we’ll make sure that we’ve properly cleaned up afterwards, too.

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.

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

Everyone would agree that it’s not only unhygienic but also improper to have a dead dog lying around, either if it’s on your property, by the roadside, or on a public space. But if you’ve never had to handle a dead dog before, you might be clueless about the next steps to take. You might find yourself asking: What should I do? Who should I call? This article aims to give you a rough guide on professionals you can call to dispose of a dead dog.

Local Animal Services
Your local animal service can help to get rid of a dead dog. However, they are best suited for removing dog carcasses from public spaces. So, if you find a dead dog on the roadside or in the park, call your local animal control service. They will send in their crew to pick up the body.

It is important that, in the meantime, you avoid touching the dead dog. The dog might have died of serious diseases, and the last thing you want is to expose yourself to a health risk. If the dead dog is in the middle of the road, it was probably hit by an oncoming vehicle. Put on hand gloves and drag the dead dog to the side of the road to prevent an accident. Then call your local animal service.

If, on the other hand, your pet dog has died and you want to have it cremated or buried in a pet cemetery, your local animal service might be able to help you remove the carcass from your property. You can call them to find out.

If you find a dead stray dog on your property, you can contact your veterinarian to help you dispose of the carcass. Again, you must avoid direct contact with a stray dog because of the health risk it may pose. On the other hand, if the dead dog is your pet, you first want to confirm if it’s dead. Check for signs of life, like looking for a pulse. If you suspect that your dog might have suffered a heart attack, you should administer first aid while you promptly contact your veterinarian.

However, if your pet dog is dead, then you need to employ an appropriate disposal method. Whatever option you decide to opt for, your veterinarian will provide you with practical advice on how to go about it.

A veterinarian can guide you on how to bury a dead dog in your backyard. Your veterinarian can also help you arrange to have your dog cremated or buried in a pet cemetery. Calling your veterinarian is prudent when you’re clueless on how to dispose of a dead dog in your yard.

Wildlife Removal Services
Wildlife removal services provide dead removal services for nuisance wildlife like raccoons, opossums, squirrels, and more. However, from time to time, they also get requests to remove dead pets for pet owners. Therefore, you may also contact a professional wildlife control service to help you deal with the removal process. Wildlife removal companies can help you arrange for your dog to be buried or cremated.

Trash Collection Service
Landfills typically do not accept carcasses of animals but they do make an exception for smaller animals like rats and mice. If what you have is a dead puppy, then you might be able to dispose of it with your normal trash. However, contact your trash collection service to find out if they will accept the carcass of a small dog. If you get their approval, you should tie up the carcass in double plastic bags before throwing it out with your trash. Ensure that you wear hand gloves when handling the carcass.

Nearby Crematorium
If you would like to have your dead dog cremated, you can call a nearby pet crematorium. You can either opt for communal or individual cremation. Although individual cremation is more expensive, you get to have the ash remains of your dog. Some pet crematoriums offer collection services so they can send in their crew to collect the carcass.

Wrap Up
Even if you might be clueless about what to do when you have a dead dog on your property, know that you do not have to figure out the process on your own. If you can just pick up your phone, there are so many people you can call who’ll be willing to help out.
