Having provided you with love and affection throughout their life grieving and mourning the loss of a much loved companion is perfectly normal. Pets play such an important role in our lives that it can be difficult to move on in the grieving process. We are members of the Association of Private Pet Cemeteries and Crematoria (APPCC); an organisation that has worked alongside Jane Matthews, author of Losing a Pet, to produce an informative bereavement leaflet – a useful guide about how to deal with the effects of bereavement. This leaflet is available for down load here, alternatively copies are available from us, veterinary surgeries and pet bereavement counsellors.
However we are aware that sometimes this just isn’t enough and we are able to provide further support via the Pet Bereavement Support Service which provides practical help and emotional support for pet owners via a confidential telephone line or via email.
