Who can I talk to if I need help throughout the grieving process? What resources are available online?

OVC Pet Trust describes why seeking support throughout the grieving process is important. Many people have found comfort in talking to a skilled clinical counsellor, calling a pet loss support group, talking to family or friends or reading books about coping with the loss of a pet.

Please see the Resources section for more help.

The Queen had to put down her last corgi 'Willow', at Windsor Castle last Sunday. A source said: “She does not like seeing her dogs suffer and she knows that sometimes putting a dog down is the kindest course of action.”

Studies show that yes, dogs and cats suffer from stress when a companion animal from their household dies.

Further, a dog is just as likely to grieve over the loss of the household cat as it is for the loss of a companion dog.

Saying goodbye is the very difficult part of having pets.

When that time has arrived, in home euthanasia allows the family to be together in the comfort and privacy of your home.

Your pet can have a peaceful, gentle departure. I make every effort to reduce stress for your pet and family.

Read a heartfelt story about the struggles National Geographic writer Marc Silver faced when he decided to put his devoted friend, Rosie, a 20-year-old cat down.

He explains how hard it was to send a pet to heaven, and also how important it was to find a vet who would come to their home. He says "That made it easier because like many cats, Rosie was not a fan of being placed in a cardboard "carrying case" and schlepped to the vet by car."
