ANIMAL GRIEF - HOW ANIMALS MOURN FOR EACH OTHER

ANIMAL GRIEF - HOW ANIMALS MOURN FOR EACH OTHER

Author - David Alderton - Publisher - Hubble & Hattie

Science is now providing some remarkable insights into animal behaviour, with crocodiles, for example, emerging as devoted parents, and elephants, like whales, able to communicate with each other across long distances by ultrasound, which is inaudible to our ears. There seems little doubt that animals experience a range of emotions, just as we do; but can they grieve, too ...?

Evidence exists that, indeed, they can: in addition, David Alderton, award-winning, multi-million selling specialist animal author, contends that emotions, including grief, can potentially have a survival value for a species.

The authoritative, rational text is superbly supported by interesting, sensitive photographs, carefully chosen to be reflective of the subject matter.

"I was recommended this excellent paperback book by a colleague following the death of Oscar, one of my favourite dogs. My wife and I read it over and over again and it gave us a real sense of support and comfort.

It is beautifully and sympathetically written covering every aspect of guilt, doubt,grief, sadness, bitterness; in fact all the feelings we experience following the death of a pet. It also enabled us to look back at happier times spent with Oscar, which we continue to treasure and reflect upon "

COMPANION ANIMAL DEATH

COMPANION ANIMAL DEATH

Author - Stewart - Publisher - Butterworth

The death of a much-loved animal, whether by euthanasia, illness or accident, is extremely stressful. Unfortunately, in veterinary practice, it is a circumstance that cannot be avoided. Performing euthanasia is a frequent and sad task for veterinary surgeons, and few receive formal training in the support that they can give to pet owners and to each other. The Society for Companion Animal Studies, through their excellent pet loss befriending work and training programmes, have considerable experience in this field and have put together this much needed book especially for those in veterinary practice.

COPING WITH PET LOSS

COPING WITH PET LOSS

Author - Robin Grey - Publisher - Sheldon Press

Losing a companion animal can be devastating. It can present children with their first experience of death, and may also be an unwelcome rite of passage for teenagers.

For older people, it can mean the complete disruption of their daily lives - at least 40 per cent rely on a pet for daily exercise. For some, pet loss evokes unresolved mourning issues from earlier losses and can have serious emotional implications.

Subjects in this sympathetic and comprehensive book include: stages of grieving; when mourning mask deeper problems; dealing with those who don't understand; helping children cope; considering euthanasia; missing: when pet loss isn't death related; special loss: losing a service dog; remembering a pet; and when to get another pet.

THE ANIMAL COMMUNICATOR'S GUIDE THROUGH LIFE, LOSS AND LOVE

Author - Pea Horsley - Publisher - Hay House

'He was just a pet,' people sometimes say, and yet our animal companions are so much more to us than this, and we may feel we have nowhere to turn when faced with their loss. Millions of people have sought answers to questions like 'What happens to animals when they die?' 'What is life like for them on the other side?' and 'Will they ever come back to me?'

Now, for the first time, internationally renowned animal communicator Pea Horsley shares ground-breaking true stories which reveal animals' thoughts and feelings on life, death and life after death.

By hearing their views, we come to understand that animals are spiritual beings and great teachers, and that we are all connected.

This collection of inspirational tales is woven together with Pea's moving story of her own dog, Morgan, and his physical struggle, his awareness of the right time to go and his insights and support from beyond the grave.
