Is Grief in Dogs Real?

Every now and again someone writes me and asks if I think dogs grieve.

Plenty of veterinarians, plus my own experience says that grief in dogs is quite real.

If you've ever seen your pet acting down after a companion dies that's grief.

Likewise, a major change can bring about feelings of grief.

Dogs feel grief and anxiety just like you and I.



My guess is you've seen your pet grieving and you want to help.

While grief in dogs can occur because of a loss of a companion, change can also bring about feelings of sadness or even anxiety.

Dogs like Routine

In other words, change can also affect your dog negatively. If your dog is acting unlike himself, consider if any of the following affect your environment.

• Are you moving?
• Have you had a lot of company recently?
• Is there a new baby in the house?
• Did you just bring this dog home?
• Or, did you bring another dog into the house?
• Did you just go on vacation leaving Fido behind?

In a dog’s mind, all of these can be reasons to be fearful and feel anxious or even grieve.

Signs of grief include:

• lethargy
• lack of appetite
• wandering around the house looking for someone, general down spirits
• Whimpering

Signs of anxiety include:

• All of the above
• sometimes destructive behavior
