Are You Grieving a Beloved Companion Animal?

Mourning a Pet in Today’s World is Tough!

Perhaps you feel silly.

Or shamed.

Or bizarre. Or weak.

Or maybe you just hurt.

Really, really bad.

Truth be told, grieving a pet is serious stuff.

The Research on Pet Loss

In fact, research finds that pet loss can be even more intense than human death-grief.

Research also finds that pet loss is largely misunderstood and devalued

And is actually relegated to the realm of disenfranchised grief.

Meaning, society, as a whole, often dismisses pet loss as something less than legitimate grief.

Yet, study…after study…after study…after study

Finds that unresolved pet loss can result in a myriad of issues, like:

  • Fatigue, insomnia, unhealthy weight loss, joint pain
  • Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy (“broken heart syndrome”)
  • Long-term anxiety, depression, and even anger issues
  • Neuroticism
  • Complicated grief
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)


I Understand Your Pet Loss Pain

I know for me, personally, pet loss is always a devastating endeavor.

I’ve lost a father. I’ve lost several cousins. I’ve lost a close friend. I’ve lost a lover. I’ve lost a mentor. I’ve lost all my grandparents, half a dozen aunts, and five uncles…

I’ve lost games…I’ve lost competitions…I’ve lost sporting titles…

I’ve lost money…heirlooms…keepsakes…

Hell, I’ve even lost my dignity on occasion.

Yet nothing has ever hurt like the loss of my beloved pups…

“Piggy” and Moose.


In fact, years and years ago—when I didn’t yet know what I now know as a grief therapist and narrative psychologist—I, literally, broke down from exhaustion following one of these losses.

And it was a looong road back to optimal health.
