The Mary Mac Show | Understanding Pet Loss II

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

This week we continue speaking about Pet Loss and the many unique issues you might find yourself in after a beloved pet’s death.

In this three part series on Pet Loss, we’ve spoken about Joshua and Daisy, my constant companions who helped me through very difficult times in my life.

Last week, we looked out the emotional side of Pet Loss. And now in the third episode, we talk about the more practical things we might go through after our pet’s death.

As I mentioned, whether this is our first pet’s death or not, or the amazing pet which was by our side through the painful death of a significant person in our life, losing a pet can be as difficult as losing another person.

If you find yourself struggling with whom to speak with about your pain, don’t trust yourself to reach out to someone who won’t be supportive of your grief. Many people can’t understand the extent of your grief for a pet; after all it’s just a cat, just a dog to them.

Rather, reach out to those who will understand your pain.

I’ve created a specific Pet Loss page on my website where you can find the best people who will honor your grief. Some organizations, like Veterinarian Medical Schools, have hotlines staffed by those studying to become Veterinarians.

You can also go to my Crisis Resource tab on this website, where you can call suicide hotlines staffed by ready and waiting trained counselors all over the world, who are willing to listen to all your pain, after a pet’s or your favorite person’s death. USE THEM!!

There is no need to harbor your pain when you can speak with someone who understands it.

You can order your Bach’s Rescue Remedy by clicking on the link below and then tab at the top of their page for Rescue Remedy Products. Remember, these do have alcohol in them.

I use the Rescue Remedy 20ml drops but they have spray and other versions which might work better for you. And…they also have products to calm pets, too.
