9780060149475: Pet Loss: A Thoughtful Guide for Adults and Children

Thoroughly researched and expertly written, this comprehensive guide is a must for animal lovers dealing with the loss of a pet.

The death of a pet can cause enormous feelings of sorrow, guilt, and loneliness for children and adults alike, whether the end comes through old age, illness, sudden death, or euthanasia. Yet pet owners are often inhibited in their very real grief, even if the animal was considered a full-fledged family member, a child's favored playmate, or an elderly person's faithful companion. In Pet Loss, the authors acknowledge and encourage such grief, and assert that pet owners must learn to cope with the death of an animal as they would with any significant loss--by expressing their feelings and coming to terms with their grief. At once a practical guide and an emotional support, Pet Loss offers unique advice for owners faced with an animal's passing, from the difficult decision to put a pet to sleep to dealing with a veterinarian or making funeral or cremation arrangements.

Other questions answered in this book include:

  • Do animals go off by themselves to die?

  • How can children be helped with their grief over the death of a family pet?

  • When an animal has to be put to sleep, what is the best method?

  • How and when should one take in a new pet?

  • How much can a vet be expected to do?
