A pet is never just a pet, every owner will tell you that. No matter the size, eating habits, and number of times you need to walk it, your pet becomes a family member and losing a family member is devastating. In these moments, your human presence, support, and care are as needed as ever. We don’t want a single pet to suffer from loneliness at the hardest time in their lives, that’s why we want each and every one of you to read the following.
Be sure about one thing — grieving about your pet is as normal as anything. If any of your relatives or friends consider this loss to not be a reason to be devastated — that’s their opinion. Research has confirmed that losing a pet is comparable to losing a loved human for many people.
Being a pet owner is a great joy and a great responsibility at the same time, so be ready for both.
