Pet Loss: A Thoughtful Guide for Adults & Children Pet Loss: A Thoughtful Guide for Adults & Children
The death of a pet can cause enormous feelings of sorrow, guilt, and loneliness for children and adults alike, whether the end comes through old age, illness, sudden accident, or euthanasia. Yet pet owners are often inhibited in their very real grief, even if the animal was considered a full-fledged family member, a child's favored playmate, or an elderly person's faithful companion. In Pet Loss, the authors acknowledge and encourage such grief, and assert that pet owners must learn to cope with the death of an animal as they would with any significant loss - by expressing their feelings and coming to terms with their grief. At once a practical guide and an emotional support, Pet Loss offers unique advice for owners faced with an animal's passing, from the difficult decision to put a pet to sleep to dealing with a veterinarian or making funeral or cremation arrangements.

Some letters include accounts of: deathbed vigils; friends and families reactions (some good, some not so good); feelings of guilt; suicidal thoughts; religious viewpoints; and how they coped, or are having trouble coping.
The last lines of the "Preface" sum up the meaning and purpose of this book - ". . .there is something extremely powerful that exists between people who are bonded in traumatic experience. We can help each other. As you make your journey through sorrow toward acceptance and healing, I hope you find empathy and reassurance in the pages of this book."
