LOSING A PET HURTS MORE THAN PEOPLE THINK.
Having a pet is something that fascinates us, they fill us with great joy from the first moment they arrive at our home, we are fascinated to feel their company and watch them do their pranks around us.
Many people who have pets, love to have them since these animals give us unparalleled love, they are a tenderness and we love that this is so, we feel very good in the company of our pets.
When we are alone, pets accompany us, they are always our faithful companions in good times or in bad times they are always with us, we like it that way since we feel supported by something.
When we lose our pet it affects us a lot and it is that many say that it hurts too much to lose a pet that for so many years we have been with her and that we have taken care of her and she has been our faithful friend.
SADNESS INVADES US IF A PET DIES
It is very likely that at least once in your life you have had a pet, that you have loved it too much, supported you and accompanied you in your worst moments but you must say goodbye to the least expected day.
Many people say that a pet is happiness, they are angels in the form of pets and they always accompany us and love to do it as we also love them to follow us.
Losing a beloved pet hurts too much, much more than people think it hurts, many underestimate the pain that can be felt by losing our dog friend or our cat or any other pet we have ever had.
To verify this, a study carried out in the Department of Psychology of the University of New Mexico in the United States asked many owners how they had felt after the loss of their pet and many said that the pain had been very deep.
Another university but in this case in Hawaii, not only confirmed this fact but also said that the pain after the death of a pet is usually much longer lasting than the pain we feel with the loss of a loved one.
Many today say they have suffered a lot for the loss of their pet and that often that pain does not compare with the loss of a loved one.
What do you think?
We just lost our 13, Almost to the day of her death pit/lab mix. I can tell you the pain is like losing my Mother all over again. The worst pain I’ve ever felt. Almost unbearable. ??
my Buddy has been gone since February of 2018 and it feels like the days get harder. I miss him with everything inside of me. I got him when I was 10 and he was 6 months old and he passed a month after he turned 13. I’m 24 now. I had him over half my life. He was my best friend and brought joy to all of my other friends that knew him. I went through elementary, middle school, high school and college with him. I grew up with him. Its crazy how you just get used to having a pet around always, you can take it for granted. Well my baby got very sick, he couldn’t keep much food down. One day I came home to black diarrhea all over my living room and at that point I knew our time was coming to a close. I took him to the vet hoping for the best that I could still be able to take care of him. I didn’t think I was going to the vet and coming home without him. After giving me the bill, it was far too much for me to afford. There was also the possibility that all the tests and medications may not find what the root problem is….and in my head that was them saying it could be even more money. I made the hardest decision I’ve made and had him put down. I cried for hours, days….my dad came to support and even he cried. They had a special bond. The typical father-dog bond. Only thing I regret is not being in the room with him. I decided not to because I had been bawling my eyes out for hours to the point of me losing my voice. I had seen an article months later saying the worst thing I could do was leave my pet alone during that time. But at the time, I thought it was the best decision because I didn’t wanna cry anymore. Now my grief is even deeper than before because I felt like I made the wrong decision. I know Buddy knows I love him. But if I had the chance I’d do it all over again and be with him to the very end. I know everyone with a pet has gone through this, but it still hurts me everyday. I should’ve been stronger for him in his last moments….I just couldn’t handle it. If anyone ever considers not staying in the room with your pet when he passes, reconsider. Your pet is scared and its comforting for you to be the last face they see. I know it hurts like hell but please don’t make the same mistake I did..Love you always Buddy….my favorite dog.
