No one is ever quite prepared to deal with the loss of a pet. Such a loss, especially an unexpected one, can have significant effects on your life and can be as heartbreaking as losing a family member. After all, you have just lost your best friend.
At Angels for Pets, we understand that most people may feel embarrassed about showing their grief for the passing of their beloved pet. This comes from the social stigma that animals aren’t worthy of such deep emotional love and respect. In saying that, our team believes that it’s okay to show your devastation and that it is an important part of the grieving process.
The main thing to remember when dealing with your grief is that many people have experienced everything you are currently going through, even if it doesn’t feel like it. If you find it hard to express these feelings to others you may find it helpful to take the time to write a story or journal entry of the memories you have of your pet.
