Davidson shares pet loss coping strategy

Lori Davidson, a 1977 Slippery Rock University graduate and pet loss specialist, was featured recently in a television report from Pittsburgh's KDKA on the subject of overcoming the loss of a pet.

Davidson is the co-founder of Cherished Ones, an online company that designs memorial products that enable people to celebrate the lives of family members, friends and pets.

The company's primary product, Pet Perennials, is a seeded potting soil that includes a portion of the cremated remains of a pet, which can be used to create a memorial garden.

Davidson established Cherished Ones after losing her 16-year-old Bichon Frise, Arnhold.
