Moving to a new home is an adjustment for animals just like it is for people.
Imagine being a dog or cat and having your world turned upside down, with noise, boxes, and stressed out humans all around you. And then being transplanted to a new place that has new smells and is completely unfamiliar.
Before you engage in a moving adventure with pets, consider these 3 important tips:
- Update your address and contact info with microchip companies and collar Identification tags.
- If your move involves changing veterinarians, get copies of all medical records to take to the new vet. Plus refills of any medications to have handy during the transition.
- Find a safe place for your pet during the actual moving day so they don’t get lost or injured. That safe place could be a crate, pet-sitter, kennel, or a quiet locked room, whatever you know works best to provide a secure place for your pet.
