Do Dogs and Cats Grieve when they lose a furry friend?
This is a question that many Lap of Love vets are asked often. And I personally do think that some pets grieve depending on the situation. That is why performing the euthanasia at home not only makes the pet that is passing more peaceful - but it helps the other family members (2 or 4 legged) say goodbye and be apart of the process.
