    Common Questions About Pet Loss

    in Pets

    Below are some of the most frequent questions we get at www.deathofmypet.com    We will go over the answers to these questions about pet loss and how it affects those of us who are are suffering.


    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PET LOSS


    & THE GRIEF OF LOSING A BEST FRIEND.


     



    How is it possible that I am sadder with the loss of my dog than with the loss of close family members?


    For many people the love and companionship of a pet may be the only or certainly the strongest bond of unconditional love they have experienced.  It is also possible, like many of my clients, which you have been strong and practical while caring for ailing parents or friends.  But suddenly, your best friend and closest companion is dying and it is the last straw on a pile of buried emotions. It may be that your pet was your “safe place to go and soft spot to land.”


     


    2. I feel like I am going crazy. Am I ever going to feel normal again?


    Yes, you will feel emotionally better but different than before.  You will eventually remember and rejoice in the many happy times you had with your pet.  You will be able to reflect on the many life lessons you shared.


    3. How long will I grieve my pet?


    All of our emotions are individual.  When we love deeply, we grieve deeply.  Grief coaches often say that it takes about a year before your loss is the first thing you think of in the morning and the last thing you think about at night.

    Pet Travel Management

    in Business

    So you have been asked to transport the family’s most important member to the winter location.  The family pet needs to get a trim and you have been asked to handle scheduling.  Transporting the family’s pets or grooming issues can be one of the most dangerous duties that you are tasked with.  One miscue with the trimmer or an overdose of tranquilizers can be a career ender.  


    Brian Merritt, of Love and Care Pet, will join us on DEMA Live to discuss some of the most important things you should know when it comes to transportation and maintenance of pets.  During this discussion we will talk about expectations of Pet Care Specialists and questions that you should be asking before giving one of the families most prized possessions over to a unknown vendor.

    Learning Life Lessons About Relationships With Your Pet (EXPERT)

    in Pets

    Learning Life Lessons With Your Pet  © Judy Helm Wright wwww.AnimalHumanConnection.com


    Our family used to think we needed to focus on teaching and training our pets. Actually, it was the other way around.  While we were concerned that they know about  “sit” “shake hands” and “fetch” they already knew all the important stuff in life like loyalty, kindness and love. We were blessed with the animal wisdom they shared with us


    This week we will focus on relationships:



    Protect your loved ones
    Be loyal to your pack members
    After a conflict, shake it off and let it go
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don’t say it in a mean way
    Sometimes the best idea when it gets stressful is to close your eyes and ignore it
    Love unconditionally without expecting anything in return
    Don’t keep score of who does what for whom. You make the first move
    Be open to being loved & accepted. Why wouldn’t someone like you?
    Enjoy compliments and pats on the back
    Greet your family with the same excitement I greet you.
    Watch for non-verbal cues to gauge the character of visitors
    If someone is mean to animals, they are not worth associating with
    Understand the true value of a good friend. Friendship is the basis for all relationships
    When someone is having a bad day, just sit close by quietly and listen
    Be kind to those who may never have a treat for you
    Never, ever lie or be unfaithful to those who love and trust you
