Loss of a Pet

Coping with the Loss of a Pet

Pets are cherished companions and important members of the family. Grief after the loss of a pet is a natural response and can affect the entire family in different ways. You or your family members may have feelings of sadness or emptiness; have trouble sleeping, eating or concentrating; or even have physical symptoms such as an upset stomach or headaches.

To help you cope, Baue Pet Services offers complimentary grief resources and counseling for owners and their families who are in need. We can also help you find ways to honor your pet in a way that is right for you.
