The loss of a pet can have a profound impact on the humans who have cared for them. One recent study showed that the loss of a dog could be even more impactful than the loss of a child. That's a pretty high bar.


On Saturday, Chanthee and I lost our rabbit, Victor. Victor was about 9 years old, but outside of being a senior rabbit, he only began showing signs of illness within a day or so of his death.
prior to having what appears to have been a stroke the day prior. While he was definitely a 'senior' rabbit, he was by no means 'ancient.' He had recently had his annual physical and had been diagnosed (yet again) as "Handsome" by his veterinarian. If Mahkayla had been the Grande Dame of the house, Victor was the joy in it. Victor was very much the embodiment of fun. Victor's loss, while admittedly very recent, has been a gut wrenching event for Chanthee and me. I also know that I am not alone when it comes to feelings of loss for a pet. There have been a number of articles written by psychologist, Julie Axelrod on the profound impact caused by the loss of a pet. If there is one thing that is clear - grief and loss does not know a shape.
