Virtual Pet Loss Support Group

It is normal to feel grief and mourn the loss of your beloved pet. To most pet owners, the pet is considered a member of the family. There are several stages of grief (denial, anger or guilt, bargaining, depression, and acceptance), but not everyone experiences all of them or in the same order.
