The APLB has an internship program that is available to members who have successfully completed the APLB Pet Loss Grief Specialist (PLGS) training. The program is supplemented by guided experience in our Chat Room, with a PLGS Chat Host. The intern must have access to a hard copy of the book, The Loss of a Pet, fourth edition, which is one of the resources for the course. The purpose for this unique program is to keep our Chat Room staffed with qualified pet loss specialists, and to train the vet techs, veterinarians, and other healthcare workers to cope with the myriad of emotional situations they are confronted with each day.
