American Institute Health Care Professionals's curator insight, June 17, 2013 3:32 PM

Grieving over the death of a pet is hard.   It is a very emotional time.   Losing a pet is just like losing a family member.    That is why there are pet loss support groups available to help.   Some of society might minimize this loss, so it is our job to raise awareness. 

Tera Hamby's comment, June 26, 2013 10:46 AM
A few years ago we lost 3 dogs that had been in our lives for almost 2 decades, in a short period of time and we were absolutely devastated. The only things that really kept us going was the support we got from online groups and their members who had gone through the same grieving process with their own pets.
