What to say to someone who has lost a pet

Our pets give us love, companionship, joy and comfort so it’s therefore no surprise that when a pet is no longer part of their owner’s life – whether due to death, being lost or needing to be rehomed – people can experience the same level of grief as they would at the death of a close relative.

Unfortunately, not everyone understands this grief, and it can be a very lonely experience without the right support. It is also difficult to know what to say to someone you know in this situation.

There are simple things that friends and family can do to help others when they are grieving for a pet on the Blue Cross site here.
