Coping with pet loss

The shift in the emotional and physical elements of our relationship with the pets we lose only proves that our bond with them is unique, beyond the realms of mortality and full of memories that deserve to be cherished and celebrated. Photo by Will Langenberg on Unsplash
  1. Was your pet merely surviving, or were they thriving? Were they in undeniable pain? Undeniable pain- this is of utmost importance! You wouldn’t want your pet to simply be present physically, only existing as a semblance of the entire personality they once were. The kindest gift we can give our pet is a life free of pain and let them go with dignity should the call need to be taken by us. They deserve that respect from our end after we have tried everything to keep them around.
  2. Mortality is a truth we cannot evade. We cannot play God.
