COPING WITH PET LOSS

For many pet parents, losing a pet is like losing a best friend, a family member, and a trusted companion all at once. When that loss occurs, many are left with grief and other emotions that can be overwhelming, not knowing what to do or say to move forward, or even what to say to others in a similar predicament. Deceased Pet Care in Atlanta, offers a free monthly Pet Loss Support Group to help those through these emotions and the grieving process.

Those of us who love our pets realize our pet is not "just a dog" or "just a cat", but a beloved member of the family.  When they come to the end of life, you feel a significant, even traumatic loss. The level of grief depends on factors such as your age and personality, the age of your pet, and the circumstances of their death.   The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief you’ll feel.  If, for example, you lived alone and the pet was your only companion, coming to terms with his loss can be even harder.  Or, if you were unable to afford veterinary treatment to prolong the life of your pet, you may even feel a profound sense of guilt. 

One aspect that can make grieving for the loss of a pet so difficult is that pet loss is not appreciated by everyone. Friends and family may ask "What’s the big deal? It’s just a pet!" Some people assume that pet loss shouldn’t hurt as much as human loss, or that it is somehow inappropriate to grieve for a pet. They may not understand because they don’t have a pet of their own, or because they are unable to appreciate the companionship and love that a pet can provide.   Seeking out others who have lost pets; those who can appreciate the magnitude of your loss, and can suggest ways of getting through the grieving process is what a Pet Loss Support Group can offer.

Deceased Pet Care’s Pet Loss Support Group is held on the first Tuesday of each month from 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm at its Chamblee Funeral Home located at 4991 Peachtree Road, Atlanta, Georgia, 30341. Come and share your story, or just listen and receive support from others who understand what it means to lose a pet.  We will explore the grief process and learn ways to let go and move forward in a meaningful way that pays tribute to your beloved pet.  Together we can get through the grieving process and start the recovery process.

Questions regarding the Pet Loss Support Group may be directed to Deceased Pet Care Funeral Homes at 770-457-7659, or visit our website at www.deceasedpetcare.com .
