Grief Counseling

GRIEF COUNSELING

33.jpgWhile there is still some stigma associated with the loss of a pet, it continues to diminish. In those who will admit to grieving, a very high percentage of those who have lost a pet experience grief more intensely with the loss of their pet than that of a parent or spouse. We understand that this is a very significant amount of pain. If you or someone you care about would find more information helpful, here are some available options for helping with your grieving process:


 

  • Seek Advice  if you are taking the loss extremely hard, be it from a friend or family, or even a psychiatrist or grief counselor.
  • Products such as books (Some available at our office; please request at the desk)
  • Paw Prints
    • We provide a clay paw print for you too keep after your pet is no longer with you that is available at no additional cost here at the hospital.
  • Put together a photo album
  • Purchase or make a headstone


Here are some websites that we feel are very helpful in dealing with the loss of a dearly loved pet.

One of our favorites:  https://www.helpguide.org/articles/grief/coping-with-losing-a-pet.htm/
