Remember: These suggested resources are for your personal use.  No website can take the place of personal consultation with your veterinarian or a counselor trained in pet bereavement.  Try to be particularly aware of the sources and citations used by a website pertaining to medical information, treatment and euthanasia.  This list is by no means exhaustive of websites and other resources available to those seeking assistance with pet loss.
