Grief support

It is often difficult to say goodbye to a pet that has given unconditional love and support. If you or your family are having difficulty coming to terms with your loss it may be a good idea to seek professional counselling from organisations such as Lifeline on 13 11 14 - a 24 hour telephone counselling service.
