Couples' Perception of Stressfulness of Death of the Family Pet.
Gage, M. Geraldine; Holcomb, Ralph
Family Relations, v40 n1 p103-05 Jan 1991
Surveyed 242 couples whose pet had died during 3 years prior to survey. About one-half of wives and over one-quarter of husbands reported being "quite" or "extremely" disturbed by pet death. Husbands rated pet loss about as stressful as loss of close friendship; wives rated it about as stressful as losing touch with married children. (Author/NB)
