My pet died suddenly. How can I stop traumatic flashbacks and focus on happy memories?

On Monday night our beloved pet died under traumatic circumstances.
I am trying really hard to focus on positive memories of her but they keep being interrupted by visual and emotional flashbacks to what happened on Monday.
Does anyone have any suggestions on specific techniques to block out these flashbacks, reduce their emotional impact or neutralise them in some way when they occur?
Any other advice on dealing with the loss of a pet will be gratefully received.
