    Welcome to a place to discuss the loss of a pet animal.

    For many, the loss of a pet can mirror the grief experienced when we lose a family member. The bonds we make with animals can provide us with joy, pleasure and companionship, and when they die, we can be left feeling deep sadness, isolation and loneliness.

    People around us may not associate grief and loss with the passing of a pet and assume you won’t be affected or at least, not for long. This can result in feelings of hurt, anger and resentment and sometimes leads to withdrawal.

    This forum is a space to freely reminisce about your pet, share your feelings of grief, discuss its effects on your relationships, and share coping strategies that have helped.


    It can be really hard if you lose a family pet or a companion pet because sometimes it can feel like no-one understands that you mourn just the same. I wonder if anyone has some beautiful ideas on how to get through grieving for their pet they could share?
