The article, Paw Prints: Grieving process can bring you relief from pet’s death, by 

“Most people love their pets enough to consider them members of the family. Pets provide companionship, emotional support and unconditional love. When a beloved pet dies, it’s natural to feel sorrow and experience grief.

The grieving process usually begins with denial and can last from days to years. Some pet parents feel anger at their loss, and that anger can be directed at anyone involved with the pet, including the family or veterinarian. They may also feel guilty about what they think they should or should not have done. Others may feel it is inappropriate to feel upset at all. Once these feelings subside, true sadness or grief may set in.

Grief is personal, and various forms of support are available. Internet or local pet bereavement groups and counseling services, books, videos, magazine articles and pet-loss support hotlines can offer help. The Delta Society can provide a list of pet loss hotlines. Reach out to family or friends who can provide support.”
