PET LOSS & GRIEF

Understand that you are NOT alone in the depth of your grief. You need to grieve in your own way,and your own time. Don't let anyone ever tell you differently! Please know, also,

that your beloved pet is still close by.

If there is a difference between losing a human and losing an animal, it has to do with the depth of the love. Species doesn’t matter at all.

Many underestimate the pain that can be felt by

losing our dog friend or our cat or any other

pet we have ever had.

How could the death of a canine possibly hurt as much

as that of a family member?

As the sadness lingers, part of my grieving process

 has been to try to understand the differences.

The Worst Thing About Losing Your Dog is Not Having Someone There to Lick the Tears Away

Losing a beloved pet is often an emotionally devastating experience. Yet as a society, we do not recognize how painful pet loss can be and how much it can impair our

emotional and physical health

The grief of losing your pet is something which only pet owners can understand. For people who have not owned a pet, witnessing the intense emotions which pet owners go

through when their pets pass on is often bewildering

Perhaps one reason our relationships with dogs can be even more

satisfying than our human relationships is that dogs provide us

with such unconditional, uncritical positive feedback

With a loss so massive, it can be extremely difficult to know what to do with your life now and how to even begin grieving such a wonderful animal. Hopefully, this guide will help light the way

through your healing process.

 Pets can help to reduce stress by lowering levels of stress hormones, calming the heart rate, and even elevating feelings of happiness.

Losing a pet is like losing a friend, counselor

and yoga-instructor all in one.
