The Effects of Unresolved Grief over the Loss of a Pet
A Counselor Can Help
Grieving is a natural human reaction to the loss of a pet. But we are rarely taught how to grieve. Many people in our lives are uncomfortable with expressions of grief. So many people who suffer a loss learn to hide their feelings. They do not process through their grief and so are stuck in the grieving process, unable to move on. There are five stages of grief—
