Coping with the loss of a pet

Nurturing a pet can be a very pleasant and rewarding experience. Over the years, slowly but steadily, a deep emotional bond is formed that can be almost sacred. But, like the day is followed by night, an inevitable time comes when our friend closes their little eyes and rests in peace...

This final act (of pet death) is always shocking to most owners, but it can even become devastating to those who experience it for the first time. To the best of our knowledge, there is no absolutely effective way to cope with all the emerging grief and sorrow, but there are some positive attitudes that can lead to a procedure of maturity. The most important of those will be mentioned in the text below.

Be grateful

Be grateful for the cherishable moments that you have experienced. Be grateful for the life lessons that your little friend has unknowingly given you. And be grateful for the circumstances of your life that made all the above possible. There are certain psychological benefits about gratitude that are scientifically proven.

Start observing nature

If you happen to live in an urban area, it is very possible that you are not in frequent contact with nature. Nature is change and an eternal repetition of cycles of beginnings and endings. Nature dies every winter, but is also being revived every spring. Try to be patient. Something new will blossom in your life.

Share your sorrow

There is a saying which suggests that, when shared, happiness can be doubled and sorrow can be halved. The traditional approach would be to organise a funeral (at the local pet cemetery or your home) and invite your friends and family. Our service offers the (much cheaper) alternative / supplementary solution of creating a digital memorial and using your social media profiles to accept the condolences of your friends and followers.
