Pre-Move Preparation

A successful move with pets begins with careful preparation. Here are some essential steps to consider:

1. Visit the Vet: Schedule a check-up for your pet. Ensure vaccinations are up to date, discuss travel concerns, and obtain a copy of your pet’s medical records.

2. Update Identification: Make sure your pet’s ID tags and microchip information are updated with your new address and contact details.

3. Acclimate to Carriers and Crates: Gradually get your pet used to traveling in a carrier or crate by making it a comfortable space with familiar items.

4. Plan for Moving Day: Decide how to manage your pet on moving day. Will they be with a friend or in a quiet room away from the hustle and bustle?

5. Prepare a Pet Essentials Bag: Pack a bag with your pet’s necessities like food, water, bowls, leash, medication, and favorite toys or blankets.

During the Move

On moving day and throughout the journey, keeping your pet safe and comfortable is crucial.

1. Secure Pets Properly: Use a well-ventilated crate or carrier to keep your pet safe in the vehicle.

2. Take Regular Breaks: If driving, stop frequently for bathroom breaks, exercise, and hydration.

3. Monitor Food and Water: Maintain regular feeding schedules and avoid feeding right before travel to prevent motion sickness.

4. Maintain a Calm Environment: Keep a relaxed atmosphere to help soothe your pet, using soft music or familiar scents.

2. Maintain Routine: Stick to regular feeding and walking schedules to provide a sense of stability.

3. Gradual Introduction: Slowly introduce your pet to different areas of the new home and neighborhood, keeping them on a leash during initial walks.
