Moving with Pets
Relocating is never an easy task, whether it is to a new state, city, or even the opposite street. Moving can be extremely daunting for people – it demands a lot. It can also easily make any individual anxious and cause them to stress out about minor details, but have you ever wondered how uneasy moving can make your pets? Moving with pets can be extremely troublesome at times; they are quite sensitive and can easily sense any unusual activity taking place. Needless to say, they also feel the stress and apprehension associated with moving to a new environment.
Relocation is much more than just moving physically; it is the beginning of a new life which is incomplete without your pets, who are as much a member of your family as anyone else. Although the challenges cannot be entirely eliminated, here are some tips and guidelines that will help you deal with them.
Leave Your Worries Behind,
Not Your Pets
1. Prepare an Overnight Kit
The kit should contain all your pet’s necessary belongings, including enough pet food, grooming tools and toys, a litter box, etc.
2. Contact Your Vet
When moving, make sure you inform your vet, so you can take prescriptions, records, and medication with you. Also, ask them to recommend a good vet in the vicinity of your new home.
3. Take Your Pet Along With You in Your Vehicle
Make sure you take your pet along with you in your vehicle and begin the new journey by stepping into the house together.
4. Updated the House? Update Your Pet’s ID
Update your pets’ ID, such as their tag or microchip information, to your new phone number and address.
