Coping with the loss of a pet

Friday, May 4, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

The loss of your beloved pet can be devastating. For most of us, our pets are not just animals, they are beings who occupy a special place in our hearts. When our dog or cat dies, something of ourselves is also lost.  As a pet owner, you may need to have your grief affirmed.  Pet sympathy cards are now widely available and some veterinary colleges have hot lines where bereaved pet owners can find a kind, understanding voice and a sympathetic ear. Most of the hotline volunteers are veterinary students who receive special training in grief counseling. If you have a child who is dealing with the death of a pet, you can help them cope by talking to them about their loss. Share some of their precious memories together and in time, their grief will diminish.

Remember, your pets count!
