Pet Grief

Dealing with the loss of a pet can be devastating. Pets are more than mere animals. They are our friends, family, and constant companions. They give us so much and ask for little. It is no wonder that the loss we feel can be deep, painful, and prolonged.

There are some wonderful books and online sites to help cope with this type of grief.
