Recommendations for Coping with Your Pet’s Death

For most of us our pets are beloved members of our families.  Coping with their passing is very sad and challenging.  Here are a few recommendations to help: 

  • Talking about the loss is essential.  This is especially important with children as it provides them with tools for addressing grief as they move forward in their lives.
  • Sharing your favorite memories of your pet is therapeutic.  Making a scrapbook of favorite photos and including their collar is often helpful.
  • Ensure that everyone in the family has processed the loss before bringing a new pet into your home.  The timeframe required is not the same for all family members.
  • When the time comes, it is best to welcome your new pet as a new member of your family.
