My cousin lost her dog and isn't coping
Basically what the title says. My cousin is VERY attached to her dogs. She lost her mom at a young age, dad left when she was tiny and she's been through a lot. Her dogs have been the Only constant in her life since she moved away from here to PA.
Her dog had surgery recently for something in his back, lots of recovery and pain. He was in the clear but developed pneumonia and she had to see some horrible things in the emergency vet.
She seems to be unable to cope. I feel awful, but don't know how tO help. She is as upset as normal people would be about family dying. I totally understand, but she is not even able to function. Do you have any advice on how to help? I've been talking with her, but nothing seems to help. :(
