Coping with Pet Lossby Robin Grey
Pet loss has grown as an area of concern, with greater awareness of this kind of grief. Company and affection are the number one benefits from pets, and three-quarters of dog owners consider their pet as a child or family member. Small wonder that losing a companion animal can be devastating. It can upset a young family, present children with their first experience of death, and may also be an unwelcome rite of passage for teenagers. For older people, it can mean the complete disruption of their daily lives -- at least 40% rely on a pet for daily exercise. For some, pet loss evokes unresolved mourning issues from earlier losses and can have serious emotional implications.

·When mourning mask deeper problems.
·Dealing with those who don't understand
