Pet Death (Death, Value, and Meaning Series)
Sandra Helene Straub



In Pet Death, Dr. Straub addresses issues and feelings commonly encountered after the death of a pet. Practical guidelines are provided for coping with feelings of loss and sorrow. Many questions arise from the difficult topic of euthanasia, and in this book, the medical aspect of this procedure is explained in simple language. The book also presents constructive methods and suggestions to help determine when is the right time to euthanize a terminally ill pet and how to tell the children. "Are your other pets grieving?" and "Should I get another pet right away?" are other questions addressed. Dr. Straub and others openly share their personal accounts of pet loss. Pet Death will touch and comfort anyone who has been, is, or will be a pet owner.

Dr . Straub uses her own personal experience as well as her education in mental health counselling to help others understand what they are feeling following the death pf a pet. If you are anticipating or coping with the loss of a pet in your life and wish to better understand the grief that accompanies such a loss, Pet Death will provide you with the information, comfort and support you need. As you travel along your journey of grief, what you’ll find on these pages is meant to acknowledge and honor your sadness – to help you make some sense out of what you are feeling. Pet Death was written to prepare you for what to expect in grief and to help you find meaning, growth, and healing along the way.
