Pet Loss and Human Bereavement Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pet Loss and Human Bereavement deals with the human/companion animal relationship and what happens when that bond is broken. The contributors to the book acknowledge the significance o the relationship and the grief involved when a pet dies or is terminally ill. The contributors' approach covers multidisciplinary care that can be given by veterinarians, psychiatrists, social workers, philosopher-ethicists, and others.

Topics include guidance for dealing with owners of terminally ill or recently deceased animals; the rights of animals to humane treatment; and the right of owners to find acceptance of their bereavement, respect for their emotional ties to their pets, and positive resolution of their grief.

Synopsis:

Describes the grieving process that occurs when people lose pets and suggests ways of helping individuals to cope.
