To most people, pets are wonderful companions, dependable friends, and household members. They are constant playmates, loyal defenders of the home, and tireless organizers of daily routine.
Pets are always happy to celebrate with us during our good days and help us through the tougher ones with unabashed love and understanding. Just ask any veterinarian and they will tell you this is a medical fact!
However, when someone loses a loved one, they feel lost and vulnerable. Such people commonly experience deep sadness and mourning that lasts months or years, depending on the circumstances.
