Relief is a Natural Component of Grief

Most people can't verbalize their feelings of relief when it follows the death of a family member, friend or pet.

It is a struggle to care for a sick pet. Our clients need our emotional support when they tell us about their frustration, guilt, anxiety and hope. As professionals, we need to identify and deal with the symptoms of anticipatory grief. We must also understand why a family has anxiety or reluctance about treating a very sick pet.
