Following the initial shock of losing a much loved pet bereavement can take its toll on our bodies in many ways. This can show in body aches and pains, headaches, asthma, muscular pains or some other symptoms.

Often we can feel quite physically drained and depreciated in energy causing apathy and want for isolation. This should subside in due course with rest, however a visit to your doctor is recommended to ensure good health and recovery. Your doctor may also provide good advice on ways to improve recovery and coping with grief through diet and exercise.

Expressing your grief can release many of the stresses that cause physical symptoms and help us to grow as people.
