Anticipatory Grief Support
Anticipatory grief is experienced when faced with a terminal diagnosis of an animal companion. It can also occur with being the caregiver of an elderly/ ill animal companion. This grief can begin long before the companion has died. We begin to grieve the thoughts of our companion no longer being here, all of the things we do with our companion, all of the things the companion can no longer do and how our lives will change without them.
