Dear one tough muther i recently lost my pet. He died in an accident five days ago.This is so hard. The pain is fading with each day. But i think the nature in which he died is what is making it hard. At least when a pet is sick, you have time to prepare and you know it is coming eventually, But my pet died instantly and without warning. I have cried at least once a day since the day he passed. I just wish i could get over it but i feel like my heart is broken into a million pieces. How will i ever get over this, and how long is the grieving process over a pet? I feel i should be over it by now :-(.

Dear Holly,

Losing a family pet is like losing a truly loved member of the family. It is hard and painful.
I sometimes think the opposite is true that a completely quick death is much easier on everyone than watching something suffer an illness. I truly don’t think anything can prepare you for the loss of any family member.
Yes, the days will go by and the pain will subside but you will always have that sad vision.
Eventually you will not break down, they say time heals all wounds but maybe until then you should thank God your sweet pet wasn’t laying in pain until he passed.
I am so sorry and I hope soon you can think of the love he brought to you and your family and not his untimely death.

Huge Muther Hugs,

OTM
