• The first book to address the topic of animal grief at the loss of a companion, explaining how to recognize grief in animals and how to help them heal
Anyone who has lost a treasured animal companion knows that this can be as devastating as losing a human loved one. Unfortunately, our society's sympathy with this loss is not commensurate with the actual grief people feel. Kaetheryn Walker fills this void by presenting true stories of the grief process she and others went through after the death of their animal companions. She gives practical advice on recovery, including daily self-care, support systems, and homeopathic remedies, and discusses the painful topic of euthanasia as well. Her book is also the first to address the important topic of animal grief at the loss of a companion. She explains how to recognize grief in animals and how to help them heal.
Kaetheryn Walker has worked in animal care for 25 years. She holds a master's degree in veterinary homeopathy and gives workshops on animal homeopathy for acute and chronic illness. The author of Homeopathic First Aid for Animals, she lives in Belfast, Maine.
