|Pet Loss, Bereavement & Memorials
For many people, a pet is not just an animal, it is a special friend. Coping with the loss of a beloved pet can be a very difficult process for everyone in the family. Whether pet loss is due to death as result of illness of injury, displacement, or the need to give up the pet to a new home, it can take a serious toll on your emotions and it can deeply impact your life.
When faced with the loss of a companion animal, you may be shocked to find yourself experiencing grief. Allowing yourself to grieve over the loss of a pet is a very important and necessary process. Normal grieving can include feeling numb or irritable, feeling depressed, crying and feeling hopeless.
It is likely that you will recover from your loss on your own, but some people find it helpful to share the experience with others whether it is with friends, family or members of a pet-loss support group. Reading about pet loss can also be helpful to both adults and children. Click here for more information about coping with pet loss.
