You can’t predict how your other pets will react to the loss of one of their house-mates. After your pet is gone, sometimes the remaining pet(s) may wander aimlessly through the house as if they are looking for their friend. Others may act like they always have and seem like it is business as usual.
We feel that many pets do experience a mourning period, and just like people, they experience it in many different ways. Before your pet is taken from your home, you may want to allow other pets to be near their body. Some may sniff and seem interested, and others may seem to ignore what has happened, but we believe their house-mates “understand” that their friend is no longer with them.
Here are a few things that you may want to do before and/or after the euthanasia:
