How to cope with losing a pet - part 1
Belinda Johnston is a vet who specialises in bereavement. In this video, she talks about the bond people have with their pet which differs from person to person. When a pet dies, or when, for whatever reason, a pet is lost, we need to grieve. There are a wide range of symptoms of grief: physical, emotional and other. Not everyone will display all the symptoms, but it is helpful to know the possible responses people might have so that we are not alarmed if we react in a way we don't expect.
Belinda goes through what these responses might be.
