Losing a pet causes real grief and needs to be mourned properly, and treated with respect. And its especially difficult in many ways when a pet has had to be put down, even if that was the kindest thing for them. Too often, as in your story, the person blames themselves and struggles to forgive themselves for making that decision. Is iot possible to arange for your mom to see a counsellor ?
