Coping with the loss of a companion animal
The death of an animal companion can be a devastating loss. Anyone that considers their pet a friend, companion or family member knows the intense pain that accompanies the loss of that friend. Adults, children and other pets in the family may each have their own unique difficulties in coping.
Below are some resources to help you cope with the loss of your beloved family member.
