Deciding when and whether to euthanize a cherished pet is one of the most difficult choices we’ll ever have to make. We have so many mixed emotions, including guilt and doubt (Am I waiting too long? Am I doing it too soon?), avoidance and denial (If I don’t do anything it’ll all go away), anxiety and ambivalence. http://j.mp/2xgDUBI

As one who truly understands the grieving process, you may feel ready to reach out to others who are suffering the pain of loss. Now that you’ve found your own way through the many challenges of grief, you have a great deal to share with others who are suffering: you can identify with their struggles, empathize with their sorrows and doubts, and offer valuable information and support. http://bit.ly/hO4In3
