You should call your vet or bury him/her in the backyard. I'm so sorry about your dog.

Many cities have ordinances against burying animals on your own property as most people do not do it properly.

Hi lemons12, I am sorry about your dog, the best place to start would be with your city's Animal Control office, if you live in McAllen Texas here is the number (956) 681-2124, otherwise you can look it up in your phone book or by calling 411 and asking for animal control in your town/state

The best person to call when your dog dies is the vet. They provide the best services and prevent any further infection. They will provide trained personnel to handle this for you. For more information, log in to http://dogs.about.com/od/petloss/f/What-Should-I-Do-If-My-Dog-Dies-At-Home.htm.

Sorry for your loss. Call your vet and ask about cremation. It not good to think about but he will be cremated w/ other animals. It is the responsible way to go. Did that with my Golden. I just think about him running free of
Pain at last. Dogs have souls so I believe they pass on

If I were you I'd bury the dog.

The vet! Why would you even consider putting him in the trash? That's cruel! Do not bury him in the backyard! It's illegal in most cities! There are ER vets that you can take the body to, to be disposed of the right way!

I found a dead dog near my home and I called animal control and all they had to say was to bury it?
