Is it time to get a new companion animal?

There is no correct length of time to wait before bringing another pet into your life. Grieving is different for everybody.

Some people need to have a period of time without a pet while for others a new pet helps to ease the pain of losing a beloved pet. When the time comes for you to bring another pet into the family just remember that this animal is equally deserving of your love. It will never replace your lost pet but you now have an appreciation of just how temporary our pets lives are and are sure treasure every moment.

Lastly, keep in mind that we don’t necessarily get over our grief of losing an animal as much as we get through our grief.
