Coping with Grief

Saying "Goodbye" Is Never Easy

Losing a beloved pet can be heartbreaking, and every pet owner’s journey through grief is different. Fortunately, there are many readily available resources (online and off) that can help you and your family through that difficult time. If you need further assistance or counseling, please don’t hesitate to speakwith your veterinarian or a grief professional in your area.

Our job is to help you stay focused on your emotional reaction to the death of your cherished pet. We want you to be able to remember your companion the way you lrnew him in life rather than death. So many people get stuck on the ending, whether it was a natural death, or the result of a dread disease or an accident. When people are stuck on the ending, they sometimes lose sight of the unlimited memories and the wide range of emotions they have about the entire relationship-not just the last few days, weeks, or months.
