Our pets our like our kids. In the event of breakups, we may lose custody of these beautiful creatures who we love so much and have become incredibly attached to. We grieve the impact of our lost pet, while your ex-companion and pet move on, often without the people around us really understanding our pain. This presentation explores the unique aspects of losing your pet due to separation and how to effectively cope with the grief of that loss.
