Grieving over the Loss of Your Pet

Posted on July 14, 2015 at 3:59 PM
Coping with the Loss of Your Beloved Pet

The loss of a pet can be as devastating, and in some cases more so, than the loss of a human loved one.

As a pet sitter and dog walker, I take care of many client's pets.  I love them as if they are my own pet.  Over the past three years, I have had to say goodbye to quite a few animals.  It is never an easy thing to cope with. I cry and grieve, just as I would for my own pet.

People grieve in many different ways.You can experience different emotions like, anger, sadness, depression, denial, and then eventually, acceptance and peace.

Being sad and emotional after losing your pet is perfectly natural.  Never feel ashamed about the way you feel.

Here are a few tips of coping with the loss of your furry family member:

  1. Reach out to others who have lost their pets.  You can reach out to your church.  Most of them have support groups.  Friends and family are typically helpful.  There are grief hot lines.
  2. Seek professional help if you need it.  Sometimes, when you talk to a neutral party it is easier.  They don't know you and they will not judge you.  
  3. Rituals can help the healing.  Hold a memorial service or funeral for your pet. Today, there are many pet cemeteries.
  4. Legacies.  You can plant a tree on behalf of your beloved pet.  Create a nice scrapbook with photo's and different memories that you and your pet shared. Make a donation to the local Human Society on behalf of you and your pet.
  5. Taking care of yourself.  Grief will run you down.  That alone can make you feel depressed.  Get out of the house!  Exercise!  Surround yourself with happy and positive people.  That can do wonders for anyone.

Those are a few tips that I can share with you that have helped me in the past. Time will always heal your wounds or at least, make it a little less painful.

I  met an interesting man the other day when I was out walking.  His name is, Richard Cole. He is a pet loss counselor.  Works with individuals and families that are dealing with the loss of their pet. If you would like to contact him, the phone number is: 239-398-9104.
