Ask the Vet: 我們的狗在我們十三歲的金毛尋回犬死後情緒一直很低落，我們能怎麼樣令她精神一點？| Our dog has been really down since our 13-year-old retriever died. What can we do to raise her spirits?
Q&A with Dr Pauline Taylor, BVM&S MACVSc
DR. PAULINE SAYS: From my own life experiences I believe that our pet dogs and cats mourn the passing of other family members including their own species. I recommend whenever possible let a pet view and spend time with a deceased family member. Let them know their friend has died. Don’t keep them wondering “why” their friend never came home one day. Talk to your dog and tell her what happened. If you have the ashes of your retriever please introduce them to your dog and see if that helps ease her pain.
