Give a pet a decent burial. Put on his grave some flowers. Remember how you were good together, and say a few words.
Back into the box all things dead animal toys, trays, bowls. This may seem cruel, but such a step is absolutely necessary. Things pet left without him, will torture you and be constantly reminded that a loved animal is no more. The box can be put in storage or buried next to the grave of a pet. If there is a life after death, he will be happy with their toys.
Remember bright moments from the life of the pet. Yes, he died, but that's no reason to scroll in the head just tragic. Better to remember what it was funny how you played together. Such memories bring a smile, and you feel that you pet is still around.
If you can not cope with sorrow and pain, talk to family or friends. Communication with loved ones will ease the suffering and help you to survive the death of a pet.
Change habits associated with dead animals. For example, if you loved to sit in the chair where you always come pet, try some time to sit in a different place. So you will not think about how the animal jumped on your lap and instinctively wait for his appearance.
Make an album dedicated to the pet. Write it in your memories and funny stories associated with it. Fill it with pictures of animal and pictures of his favorite toys. This album will help you keep pleasant memories of the deceased four-legged friend.
Create a web page in memory of the pet. Where you can post pictures of him and leave room for comments. So you can meet and make friends with those who also experienced the death of a pet. You need support and help through this.
If you have other Pets, don't forget about them. They also feel the loss. They are now just as hard, and they need your attention and care.
Many people recommend immediately to have a new pet. This method can be efficient and effective, but does not fit all. There are people for whom the deceased animal will forever remain only friend, and a new pet in the house may cause only negative emotions. If you understand that life goes on, and want to get rid of grief and anguish, a funny kitten or puppy can become a real salvation. But do not associate it with the deceased pet. Treat your new friend like a completely different animal. So it will be easier to love him.
