We are Pet Owners Too and We Understand Grief
All of us at Peaceful Pets Aquamation are pet owners too, and we understand that facing the death of a pet or even a pet with a serious illness can be emotionally devastating. We encourage you to speak with your veterinarian and, if needed, a grief counselor to obtain grief support, when the time is near. You need clear information regarding treatment in order to evaluate all of your options, including the most difficult decisions.
The period following the loss of a pet can be difficult for the entire family. That’s why we put together a page of resources that include grief support counselors, frequently asked questions regarding pet loss, and a list of reputable grief websites.
Dr. Sandra Grossman offers all Peaceful Pets clients one free telephone consultation or a free visit to one of her pet loss groups. Contact her at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If the loss of your pet is proving to be too much for you or your family, we recommend you contact someone who can help. Grief support is very important and sometimes it is the best remedy to help you get your life back on track.
