I’m just wondering if anyone has any experience with a pet grieving?
We lost our mum suddenly in February. My sister took on her dog which is a boxer dog. My sister also has a boxer dog and they get on well. Mums dog was used to peace and quiet and a structured routine. My sister also has 2 children so the house isn’t as quiet as she’s used to.
So 5 months later she’s started to get seemingly anxious at bedtime and it takes my sister a long time to settle her. She took her to the vet yesterday and he said about maybe a brain tumour! Which has freaked me out a lot as she’s all that’s left of mum and way too young! Could it be grief even after 5 months? It’s stressing my sister out and if I could I’d have the dog with me but I’m on my own with 2 children and work full time (will be going back to full time at the end of the month)
I’m just wondering if anyone has experienced anything like this as I don’t want to lose her and mum would be so upset to see her like this.
Thanks in advance,
