Children and Pet Loss: A Guide for Helping
Marty Tousley


The Guide is a practical tool for physicians, veterinarians, teachers, counselors, parents, grandparents and others who are in a position to help children cope with the loss of a pet. It is intended to help readers understand children's attachment to their pets and the significance of their loss, to understand the child's concept of death, to recognize how children grieve, to encourage the child's successful grieving, to know when and whether to suggest getting another pet, to recognize loss as a valuable lesson about life, and to know which books are recommended for grieving children.
