Pets complicate moving. Your pet can adjust without getting bark-crazy. Since pets enjoy stability, move them as little as possible. Cats want a stable litter box. Packing slowly reduces stress. Visit the vet while arranging. Obtain vaccination records, health certificates, and updated ID tags.
Transportation is essential on moving day. It’s hard to tell if Fido can fly or Mr. Whiskers gets car sick. Keep pets in the cabin, not the luggage. Check ahead for costs. Freight trip checklist is long. Air containers, health papers, shipping documentation, and deposit necessary.
Remember pet meds and tranquilizers. Paperwork allows driving. Check pet-friendly hotels if staying overnight. Drive through rest stops. Your pet may require exercise. Make sure food and water fit in their carriers.
Then what? Let your pet explore room by room. Make your pet a “pet” place. Slowly introduce him to each room. Make sure pet-friendly box towers are stable. Climbers rest by scratching. Tablecloths assist. Animals adapt differently. Many dogs are upset or worried after moving. Pampering your dog with treats won’t help. Equally love your pet. Befriend a vet. They can handle pets after a move.
