    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.

    Hi lovely,

    Thank you for your response. It has been a week and a half since we have lost our dog and the pain is slowly easing. I have to remind myself that we did what was best for her and that she is at complete peace. It’s only us that has to live with the pain of losing her.

    I hope you and your family are okay. Time heals all wounds and you will always carry the memory of your little girl and she will always be beside your side watching over you.
