Pet Memorial

Losing a pet can be as painful as losing a family member – in fact out pets are family members, and it is normal to grieve for their loss as we would any other loved one.

Is it abnormal to mourn for a pet?

No.  Humans and animals can develop bonds.  This is natural, as the relationship between humans and animals is mutually beneficial.  Numerous studies have documented the physical and mental health benefits that companion animals can offer.  Grief is a natural response to any significant loss; therefore, it is very common for humans to experience strong grief reactions to the death of a beloved companion animal, just as they would with the loss of any other family member.
