Grieving for the loss of a pet is different for everyone and can be a very difficult time. There is no set pattern for grief and feelings can include a mixture of sadness, confusion, shock, anger, guilt, self-doubt, relief, denial and even depression. It’s important to know that there is no right or wrong way to feel and whatever feelings you encounter are perfectly normal and nothing to be embarrassed about.
If you need help dealing with your loss or want to seek advice for other family members, your GP will be able to point you in the right direction for some professional advice.
There are also specific pet bereavement support services available. The Blue Cross Pet Bereavement Support Service is a confidential telephone and e-mail support line service that offers emotional support and information. Visit the Blue Cross website or call 0800 096 6606 for more information.
