Given the passionate bond most of us share with our animals, it is natural to feel devastated by feelings of grief and sadness when a pet dies. Although some people may not understand the depth of feeling you had for your pet, you should in no way feel guilty or ashamed about grieving for an animal friend. Pet loss support groups are available for those seeking emotional support, thoughtful advice, or a comforting space to share stories of your beloved pet.
