The impending loss of a beloved pet can be a confusing time.
You (and your pet) may be scared, angry and unsure. There are a number of treatments and ideas beyond conventional practices, and it's important to learn about all your options to make informed decisions.
Not all of these resources may be available in your area, and not all of them may be right for you. Be sure to talk with your veterinarian, as well as other pet professionals like groomers, supply store owners, and your photographer, as they might know about a local resource that could be of help to your and your pet.
Holistic care doesn't end with your pet's passing; there are options for burial and cremation, memorials, and working through your grief through journaling, group therapy, and helpful reading material.
The menu items to the left provide some information about resources that we're aware of, with links to more information from pet industry experts.
