Pet Bereavement Leaflet, Poetry and Books

Pets are part of our family and the sense of loss we all go through cannot be underestimated. Besides feelings of sadness people often experience various emotions such as Guilt, Anger, Shock & Denial and Depression. Sadly most of us have to make the impossible decision to put our pet to sleep. Even though it is the last act of love we can offer our pet and is made in their best interests we tend to looks for ways to question our decision and can have feelings of guilt after the event.

coping-with-pet-bereavement-139x288 Pet Bereavement Leaflet, Poetry and BooksThe leaflet “Coping with Pet Bereavement” has been produced by the APPCC with the help of Jane Matthews, author of Losing a Pet. It is designed to help you through this difficult time and can be downloaded here.

Many people do not realise how traumatic and confusing death can be on a child. Although children tend to grieve for shorter periods of time, their grief is no less intense than that experienced by adults. Children also tend to comeback to the subject repeatedly; so extreme patience is required when dealing with the grieving child. The workbook “I Miss My Pet: A workbook for children about pet loss” by Katie Nurmi© let’s children work through the loss of a pet by teaching the child that their feelings are important and respected. They will also learn that respect for all living creatures is an important aspect of growing up.

If you would like more help then you may find some of the books in our Poetry and Books section useful.
