Pet Loss Psychologists & Counsellors

Sometimes, dealing with the loss of a pet can be difficult to come to terms with on your own. If you find that you’re more comfortable talking one-on-one with a medical professional specializing in pet loss, we recommend the following professionals:

Judith Blythe – Calgary Grief Counsellor

 Pet Therapy Society – Edmonton Pet Loss Support Group

It is the commitment of the Paws to Remember program to facilitate a resolution through the grieving process and group support. They heal the heart through sharing.
