Coping With The Loss Of A Pet

By far the hardest part of being a dog owner is the tragic and inevitable day when your pet passes away. There is very little you can do to overcome grief; you have to go through the motions until it gradually becomes more bearable. But these tips may help you heal slightly faster.

Do

  • Express your grief; bottling it up can make it worse in the long run

  • Call a loved one to help support you emotionally

  • Call the ASPCA Pet Loss Hotline at (877) GRIEF-10 for bereavement resources

  • Make a memorial for your pet

  • Give yourself time to heal

Don’t

  • Justify your grief; it is perfectly acceptable to be devastated about the loss of a pet

  • Buy a replacement pet straight away. Instead, give yourself time to move on

  • Swear off owning pets again; another animal out there needs your love, too

  • Rush the grieving process
