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.
