If you or someone you know has just lost a pet, you’ll know how heartbreaking such a loss can be. It can often be difficult to know what is the best option for your cherished animal and how to move on in life after such anguish. Everyone suffers grief differently, but for some, the best thing to do is to simply acknowledge this loss. Sometimes saying one final goodbye to your pet is a great first step. Whether it takes a few hours or a few years to overcome the pain, it is valid and real all the same and everyone has the right to mourn for as long as they need. However, when grief becomes too agonizing it is only fair that one may seek a solution to their sadness.

Unfortunately, there is no one ‘solution’ to grief, but there are many methods of healing that can be useful for improving one’s mental health. For some, sharing and recounting positive memories about your pet can be a great way to remember the moments you shared. You should not attempt to hide away or punish yourself for feeling sadness, and by sharing memories with friends and families you may find yourself one step closer to recovery. Furthermore, remembering the good times can show you the many ways in which you improved your pet’s life just by giving them a home. And if it is closure you seek right after the passing of your beloved pet, Pets R.I.P may be just what you need. Pets R.I.P can provide dignified and respectful memorials and aid you if your decision making.
