Pet Loss

How do we cope with losing our animal companions?

It’s not just the dog, the cat, or another cherished pet. They’ve become a member of the family, who’ve brought joy and companionship to our lives. They’ve been there for the challenges in life, and maybe even given us some meaning and purpose.

And now, your pet has become ill, and you’ve had to make a difficult decision for the comfort of your cherished companion. You may have suddenly experienced a tragic loss as a result of an accident. Or it may be that a long life is nearing an end, which means anticipating a challenging goodbye. It can be overwhelming, and some people may not understand the depth of your feelings for your companion. You should never feel guilty or ashamed about grieving for an animal friend.

Let’s create some space to talk about difficult emotions and ways to explore meaning and memories. You’re not alone.
