ASK THE VET
Blue Pearl Pet Loss Support Group
Our beloved pets are dear to us, filling our hearts with unconditional love, companionship and joy. When we lose them, it is very difficult. We feel a void, sadness, grief. But we are not alone. BluePearl Georgia Veterinary Specialists understands and began offering a Pet Loss Support Group ten years ago where we can gather with others
and support one another.
The meetings are informal, caring and compassionate. Everyone who attends, whether mourning the loss of a pet, recently or in the past, in anticipation of loss, or preparing for euthanasia "gets it". They understand how very special the bonds are that we share with our pets and how much the love and connection are intertwined with the painful feelings of loss and grief.
"Not only has the group given me hope again, but it's the first place I've ever really felt comfortable enough to talk openly and express my thoughts and feelings. It's rather touching how compassionate and sincere everyone is to one another. Just listening to others talk about their experiences, and interacting with people who genuinely care and understand how profound losing a pet can be, has made me feel a lot less alone. I can only speak for myself, but from what I've heard and witnessed is that your group has been a saving grace for many, many others as well." - Lauren Y.
