One of the most difficult parts of having pets is the knowledge that their lives are much shorter than ours and so ultimately, the day comes when we have to say goodbye.
Whether through planned euthanasia, sudden life-ending illness or tragic accident, the loss of a pet is always extremely difficult and often can take weeks to months to recover from.
Sometimes, it can help to know that support is available for you and your family. There are several Pet Loss Support groups and hotlines available free of charge, as well as books and articles that you can read to help you understand some of the emotions you may be feeling. As well, the staff of Bay Cities Animal Hospital is always available to talk with you and provide you with support.
