My pet is like my child. How will I ever get over this loss?
There is no greater love than that between a parent and a child. Some may say a dog is just a dog or a cat is just a cat, but those who love them know differently. Fortunately, today’s world is recognising that love more and more and acknowledging how hard the loss of a pet can be. There are counseling services and resources designed to help families and individuals through this difficult time. If you know you or someone in your family is going to have a very hard time with the loss of a pet, you might want to connect with a local counselor even before euthanasia takes place. Healing takes time and everyone grieves differently. Please remember that you are not alone and others care.
