Healing After Loss with Pet Grief Support in Dunedin
Losing a pet can be just as painful as losing a close family member. Cats and dogs share so much of their lives with us and give us unwavering and unmatched love day in and day out. Losing a companion can be overwhelming, but with pet grief support, you can find healing. At Paws and Claws Animal Medical Center, we recommend the pet loss support program put on by the Pinellas Animal Foundation. They offer telephone support and group meets at no charge.
What is the Pinellas Animal Foundation?
The Pinellas Animal Foundation is a non-profit veterinary and community partnership dedicated to improved animal care, owner responsibility, and increased awareness of the value of the human-animal bond. In addition to their pet loss support group, they also offer educational and service programs for pet owners.
How a Pet Grief Support Group Can Help You
A pet grief support group can help ease your stress, anxiety, and sadness related to the loss of your pet. The support groups are conducted by professional group leaders who are knowledgeable in grief counseling. Attending one or more of these meetings can help in the following ways:
- Increase your understanding of your own grieving process
- Learn ways to cope in a healthy way with your grief
- Receive and provide support to and from other pet parents who have also lost a beloved companion
- Receive a list of qualified bereavement counselors for greater support, if desired
- And more
