Moving with pets
So you’ve decided to move house. Great! A whole new world of opportunity awaits you! The move may be stressful at times, but it’s nothing you can’t take. But what about your animal companions? Moving with your pets creates a whole world of new issues you need to take care of. Fear not, though! We’ll tell you just what you need to do to make sure your move goes just as smoothly for your pet as it does for you.
The most important thing you need to keep in mind is that you need to make a moving schedule and stick to it. This is a general rule of thumb for all types of moving, but is especially important when moving with pets. This is because your pets are delicate creatures who have specific needs and you can’t really explain to them what is happening. So make sure you give your pets all the attention they deserve so this move does not negatively impact their well-being.
Make sure you contact your vet – a regular check-up before a ride is never a bad thing, and your vet can give you tips on how to cater to your pet’s needs along the way. They can also recommend you a veterinarian near your new place of residence. Double-check to make sure your new quarters is pet-friendly. Finally, keep a bunch of treats at hand and make sure you pay proper attention to your companion – the move is going to be a stressful time for your pet, and you are the only means through which that stress can be reduced.
Your pets will be entering a new, unfamiliar territory, therefore they may feel a little threatened. It’s your job to make it as easy for them as possible.
The most important thing is that you stick to your regular routine as much as possible – walk or feed your pet at the same time you did that in the previous home. Also make sure you enter the home first and bring in some familiar objects. The animal will then notice the familiarity and will feel a bit more at ease with the new surroundings. Make sure you play with your pet. Moving can be quite traumatic, for cats especially, so seeing you pay so much attention to them is bound to make the whole transition easier for them. Finally, if you haven’t done that already, make ID tags for your pet. Your pet might get lost as they explore their new vicinity – make sure anyone that finds them has access to up-to-date data on how to find their owner.
