Humans like having pets in their homes. In the past, these animals used to be hunting companions, herders, and protectors. Even today, pets continue to be a crucial part of our lives. At Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home, we have seen people mourning the loss of a pet as much as they would a family member. Most dogs & cats live for around 13 years, and when you lose a pet, it can affect you significantly. Let’s look at why losing a pet can be so challenging.

Pets Play Many Roles In our Lives

Pets are companions, protectors, and caretakers and offer us unconditional affection. Many people find that their pets provide them with emotional support and feel comforted by their presence. This makes them a vital part of our lives.

Companionship

The bond that a pet parent shares with their pet are not something that goes away easily. Many people have pets well before they have partners and start living with someone, which means they become part of their lifestyle and routine. It’s why their loss can be devastating for owners.

Studies indicate that losing a pet can bring on immense grief, and people go through the same stages of grief as they do when they lose a family member. If you have lost a pet, take some time to recover and heal. Failing to do so can increase your pain and stress, which can ultimately become unbearable and difficult to deal with.
