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.

Albuquerque Dead Animal Tip: Can a dead animal cause any diseases or health problems?

Dead animals will definitely pose a health hazard as there are a number of risk factors associated with them. The plain truth is the carcass of a dead animal will be invaded by bacteria and germs that will bring about the decomposition of the flesh. The end result is a release of germs that along with the foul smell of a dead animal are major risk factors. The best way of mitigating the diseases and risks posed by dead animals is to bury them or cremate them as soon as possible.

Putrescine or cadaverine
The decomposing dead animal bodies will create something called Putrescine or cadaverine which are responsible for the foul smell given off by dead animals. These substances are known to be toxic and are dangerous if ingested. The simple truth is carcasses can cause a number of health issues. In the case of a dead raccoon, there is a risk that it can transmit the rabies virus.

This virus may remain in the carcass for some time and just one wrong move can result in infection. Your pet dog might try to dig up or rip the dead raccoon’s body and in doing so may contract the rabies virus. If your pet was not properly vaccinated against rabies, then it could die as a result of contracting the rabies virus from the carcass.

Airborne bacteria
Bacteria present in the carcass will be released into the air as soon as the body starts to decompose. This in turn can lead to diseases such as tularemia which can be contracted from the carcass. Other health issues related to dead animals include fleas and ticks as well as mites that live on for some time after the animal has died. These could easily be transferred to a pet or human being.

Different species have their own set of diseases
It pays to keep in mind that each different species of animal has its own associated disease threats. Some of these diseases are very dangerous. This is why it never pays to come close to a dead animal and one should never ever try to touch the carcass without proper protection for the hands. The right course of action is to let a professional deal with the disposal of dead animal bodies.

Also, it is important to thoroughly clean up the place where the carcass was lying. Professionals know how to use strong biological cleaning agents, which are not readily available over the counter.

Disposing the carcass
Before trying to dispose of the carcass, there are a number of things to keep in mind. First, you need to be wary about contracting diseases and so, it makes sense to learn and use the right way to handle the carcass as that is the best way of reducing the threat of infection. Second, it is important to clean as well as sanitize the area. The disposal should be done by a professional who is certified in handling carcasses and who knows how to sanitize the area properly.
