Understanding your feelings of loss when your pet dies.
The bond that we form with our pets can be very deep and fulfilling, and the loss of a beloved pet can have an impact on us that is as great, or even greater, than the loss of a family member or friend. This bond is what makes our interactions with pets rich and rewarding, but also what makes the grief process so complicated. The greater the love you feel for a person or animal, the deeper the sense of loss when they are gone. After your pet has died or been lost, it is natural and normal to feel grief and sorrow. The amount of time a person grieves for the loss of their pet may be very different for different people. Although grief is an internal and private response, there are certain stages of grief that most people experience. By understanding the process, you can be better prepared to accept and handle your grief and to help other family members and friends who share your sense of loss. It’s hard to think of it this way because the process can seem so painful, but mourning is actually an act of love.
The Las Vegas pet loss support group is for men and women who are dealing with the grief loss process brought about by the loss of a beloved pet. This small and caring free support group is provided by Divorced & Widowed Adjustment, Inc. a Las Vegas non-profit organization providing community service programs for over 35 years.
