A 30 Day Guide to Healing from the Loss of Your Pet

Reviewed by Rebecca Ruch-Gallie, DVM, MS

Veterinarians looking for a short, easy-to-read guide to offer grieving clients may consider A 30 Day Guide to Healing from the Loss of Your Pet. Designed as a journal for those mourning the loss of a pet, the pages contain quotes related to loss and pet ownership as well as the author's own words of advice. The journal is balanced with a brief discussion on the 7 R's to recovery at the beginning and the 4 tasks necessary to complete mourning after day 31. Although the layout would be challenging to use as a reference guide (particularly for people who process grief at a different pace), the book does provide additional resources at the end for clients looking for further assistance.—Gael J.
