Tripawd Talk Radio Episode #116: On this is episode we're honored to have the Director of the Veterinary Mental Health Initiative (VMHI) with us to talk about grief and loss. We've helped many Tripawds members cope with all sorts of stress and grief over the years. But that's not easy when everyone copes differently. From dealing with a cancer diagnosis or major surgery, to end of life care, grief affects all pet parents at some time.
That's why Dr. Katie Lawlor helped co-found the Pet Loss Community offering grief support to pet parents. You can learn more at PetLossCommunitySupport.com. Dr Lawlor is a clinical psychologist interested in veterinary medicine especially when it comes to the human-animal bond, grief, and loss.
