Saying Goodbye

Talking about your pet and expressing the pain of the loss will help to release the shock and stress you are feeling, especially if you speak to someone who has experienced a similar loss. Support groups, vets, clergy, and grief counselors are very helpful and can be found both in the community on online. Getting another pet to fill the void that is left after a pet’s passing can help. Only you can determine when you are ready. Just remember that the new pet in no way “replaces” your other pet. It is just a new addition to your family – a new best friend. Creating a memory book can help ease the pain of pet loss and help owners to remember the good times. Sometimes a paw print, a clipping of fur, a collar or other personal item, and photographs to help them reflect on the life of their pet.
