Losing a pet is not easy. It’s extremely painful for an owner. Those who have undergone this suffering will testify that it felt like losing a family member or a friend. As the pets are part of the family so losing a dog might be as sad as they lost one of their family members. Science now corroborates this feeling. As per a study by the University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna, Scientists have realized that the love between dogs and their owners is similar to the parent-child relation in humans.But, we have to lonely bear the brunt of this loss without any social support. We cannot express our sorrow publicly as society takes it lightly which can result in depression.
But the study suggests otherwise. Scientists relate it to the “secure base effect” bond between humans and dogs”.Relationship-based on love and trust
Like infants consider their parents safe due to love, trust and comfort because their parent does everything for them. Likewise, relationship between an animal and owner is of love, believe and comfort. So, the demise of the pet sometimes upset your life and can cause mental problems such as stress and anxiety. Some people around you think that this is not as important as the loss of human one. But only you can feel the grief as you have lost your dog. The truth is its painful and sorrowful and you need sympathy, support and rest.Reluctance to publicly mourn:
