The loss of a pet, young or old, is a sad and difficult situation
These animals are part of the family. In some situations, the pet lost originally belonged to a deceased family member. Feelings of loss for the family member can resurface in addition to the sadness one feels when the pet is gone. Some feel guilt, especially when the pet was euthanized. It is important to address these feelings.
At Animal Medical Center, we understand how important your pet was to you. Most of us have been through it before, and sometimes with many pets. We wanted to provide some resources that my aid in your relief.
