Losing a pet can be incredibly difficult.  Our pets are often with us through important life changes - they are the ones who are by our sides offering constant love and support when we need it most.  It is only natural that the loss of such a constant and loyal companion would be heartbreaking. 

Please reach out to friends, family, a therapist, clergy, and/or pet loss support groups to help you through the grieving process.
