The Death of a Pet

Dealing with the loss of a pet is difficult at any age. When children are involved, parents must make sure the children understand what is happening and how to deal with the loss and subsequent grief.
Children handle the loss differently depending on their age, developmental level, and personality.

The Kennel Club of Fort Atkinson developed a brochure to help parents help their children understand and cope with the loss of a beloved pet.  The brochure includes a list of other helpful resources, as well.
