The Loss of a Pet, New Revised and Expanded Edition

Sadly, all living things die. While you can never be completely prepared for that time, what is offered by Dr. Wallace Sife in these pages can help you draw upon new strength to ease your grief and pain.

In this fully revised and expanded edition of the award-winning book The Loss of a Pet, Dr. Sife, one of the pioneering authors and counselors in the field of pet bereavement, covers all viewpoints of bereavement for a beloved animal companion. This book includes practical suggestions, as well as brief case histories, and illustrates the insights that Dr. Sife has gleaned from his many years of experience.

In addition to helping the reader cope with the death of a much-loved pet, The Loss of a Pet addresses pet losses that are not death-related. Dr. Sife has specially designed this book to help you learn more about yourself through the grieving process and to successfully cope with this unique kind of loving and grief?and, most importantly, to help you realize that you are not alone.

Synopsis:

Understanding helps heal the hurt when you lose a pet

A cherished pet gives you boundless, unconditional love and occupies a special place in your routine, your home, and your heart. When your pet dies, that warm, special place becomes a sad, empty space. This book helps you understand:

  • The grieving process, including typical stages of grief and techniques for coping
  • Grieving for a missing pet, one you had to give up because of a change in life situation, and other difficult circumstances
  • Children and the death of a pet
  • Euthanasia, including important considerations
  • Religion and the death of a pet, with articles by various religious leaders
  • Aftercare facilities, including an extensive index of pet cemeteries, crematories, and memorial gardens

The Loss of a Pet, Third Edition has new expanded information, is filled with practical suggestions, resources, and most importantly, compassion and understanding. This important book helps you cope and reassures you that you are not alone.
