Grief is awful and people diminish the grief a pet’s death can bring. The only thing I can think of is be there. If possible to simply show up with food and sit with him. You don’t have to talk. Just be there.
If you’re aren’t near-by – can you get there? Can you travel to see him for a short time?
If not, then do what you can to reach out. It could be ordering food for him. Send a pizza to his house. I mean, text him first and ask him if he’s home because you’re sending pizza to him. Send him stupid memes. Watch a stupid movie in a watch party.
Just tell him that you’re thinking about him and you want to know if he’s ok and if he needs anything. Sometimes just making people aware that you’re there is enough. But if you think he’s going to hurt himself – then get your ass to his home and be there in person. Drag him back to your home if you need to.
