To most pet owners, their pet is not just any animal, but a part of the family. Moving is often a stressful experience because it requires both mental labor to plan the move and physical labor. As humans, we have a better idea of what is going on during a move. Animals, on the other hand, are more confused and can easily get stressed out when there’s unexpected activity in their home. When you start packing up, pet may be thinking that you’re going to leave forever. Once you arrive at your new home it will certainly take time for your pet to adjust to a new environment.
Followings are some tips that should make the experience a bit calmer for your beloved Pets and keep them comfortable during and after the Moving process:
Inform your vet so you can take records and any prescription
medications with you. Consult your vet to ensure your pet is in good health for traveling. Keep your pet’s documentation in a safe, accessible place. Documentation includes vaccination records, microchip and license numbers, your current vet’s contact information, and a recent photo of your pet. Consult your vet who may be able to offer suggestions for reducing pet anxiety.
Have Documentation Ready If you’re moving to another city, state, or perhaps country.
Make sure your new home is pet-friendly and the pet has enough place.
Prepare an easily-accessible ‘overnight kit’ that has enough dog
food, kitty litter, toys and grooming tools to have comfortable stay during the first few days of unpacking.
Keep them in the quietest area possible during the move and remove them from the action. Keep Them Calm on Moving Day. Keep your pet in one room where they are comfortable with the door closed. Just be sure to check in on your pet throughout the day, keep them fed, and take them for a walk when you have a chance.
Take the pet to the new house in your own vehicle when moving.
If you are moving fish and reptiles you’ll need to buy specialist packing equipment for their tanks or cages. “Care and timing is key here because fish and reptiles can be particularly sensitive to changes in temperature or their container moving.
After you move, make sure you update their tags or microchip information to the new address and phone number. Show Them Around to become accustomed to the area surrounding their new home. Additionally, showing your pet around the neighborhood will help them to become more comfortable with their surroundings.
