Ways To Cope With Pet Loss

Grief will look different for each one of us, but it doesn’t mean that it’s any harder or easier for each individual. Healing from a pet loss can take a while, and the key thing to remember is to not put too much pressure on yourself during this time. We’ve listed some of the most beneficial ways you can cope with the loss of a pet. 

Emotional Support 

It can be easy to isolate when going through such an emotional time, but a lot of the time this can leave us feeling worse. Socialising, seeing friends and family for emotional support can be a great way to help you following a pet loss. It can provide you with a good distraction, as well as motivating you to get out of the house. 


While it may seem impossible, sticking to a routine is a healthy way to help you get back into the swing of things. With the absence of your pet, your days may seem a little all over the place, but establishing a new daily routine can help you move forward at your own pace. 

Heal At Your Own Pace 

Healing at your own pace is extremely important during a time like this. Don’t feel rushed or pressured to heal by a certain timeline. Losing a pet can really disrupt your day to day life, so be gentle with yourself and take the time you need to come to terms with your loss. 

Honouring Your Pet

Honouring your pet may look different to each individual, but it’s a great way to help you heal through such a challenging time. You could create a memorial, plant a tree for your pet, or make a scrapbook of photos to look back on. There are several ways to honour your pet’s memory, and look back on all the fond memories you have together.
