Loss and Grief
It is important to understand that feeling sad over the loss of a pet is normal. The degree of pain we feel is different for each of us. We may experience some emotions such as grief, shock, anger, guilt, and loneliness. It is essential to recognize that any of these feelings are normal response to loss. There is no instant remedy to these feelings, we must each go through the recovery process at our own pace. But there are some things you can do that may help.
Acknowledge and express your feelings. Understand that you have a right and a need to grieve. Share your feelings with others. A support group, family and friends can provide comfort to you. Try to avoid individuals who do not understand or share your feelings.
