Moving with Pets

 

Pets make great additions to a home and can even help keep you healthy by providing a constant source of company and exercise. But with so many pet-friendly places, it can be hard knowing where to go if you want your furry friend to join you. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of tips for moving with pets that will make the transition as stress-free as possible. Read on to learn more about how to safely house your pet while packing up the family for a new adventure.

 

 

Be Prepared Before You Move

Before you even start thinking about packing up your house for a move, you’ll want to make sure your pet is ready to go with you. Make sure your pet is in good health and will be able to survive your move and the transition to a new home. If your pet has any health issues that could be worsened by moving, make sure to speak to your veterinarian before moving so he or she can give you any advice they may have. Also, make sure you have all of your pet’s records (including any vaccinations they have had recently) packed up and ready. This makes it much easier to move when your pet is ready to move with you. And don’t forget to bring any bedding and toys they may need while you’re at it.

 

Consider Only Taking What You Need

If you’re moving with a pet, you’ll want to take as little as possible with you. Packing up unnecessary items can be very time-consuming, not to mention costly, so only bring the essentials with you. And don’t forget about the items you’ll need for your pet while you’re at it. Make sure you have a copy of all of your pet’s records, including their shots and any medications they may need. Make sure to also take any bedding and toys your pet will need while you’re there. And if your pet has special food or treats they love while they’re there, make sure you have that as well.

 

Confirm a Pet-Friendly Date in Advance

Confirming a pet-friendly date in advance will help you avoid any last-minute changes that could cause you to rush. When you’re looking into moving with a pet, the most important thing to keep in mind is the date you’ll be moving. This is when your pet will be going with you to the new home, too. And while most pet-friendly dates are listed as Saturdays, you’ll want to make sure that it’s a day when you don’t have any other obligations. When you can make sure that it’s a day when you won’t have any other obligations, you’ll be able to move with your pet without any hassles.

 

Have a Moving Plan in Place

Moving with pets is easy when you have a plan in place. That way, you can make sure you’re not wasting any time or energy during the move. With that in mind, you’ll want to plan out the move beforehand. This can help you make sure you’re not wasting any time during the move by making sure you have everything you need before you start. First, make sure you have a list of all the things you need while you’re at the new home. This way, you don’t have to go back and forth between the two houses, wasting time and energy. Next, make sure you have a list of the things you need while you’re at your old home. This way, you don’t have to go back and forth between the two houses, wasting time and energy. And don’t forget to include the things your pet will need while you’re at it.

 

Don’t Pack Anything Old or Stuffed With your Pet

If you’re transporting your pet in a crate or kennel, don’t pack any items that your pet is used to having in their environment. This will help keep your pet calm and happy during the trip, making the trip much smoother. While it’s tempting to load up your car with a bunch of stuffed animals and other things that your pet is used to having around, you don’t want to do this. This will only confuse your pet and make the trip a lot more stressful for them. Instead, make sure to only bring along the necessities, like their food and bedding. This way, you can also make sure to keep them safe while they’re in the car by only bringing them along in a crate or kennel.

 

Preserve Your Dog’s Hair and Finery

When you’re packing up your dog, you’ll want to make sure to bring along any items made from their hair. This includes hairballs and toys. These items can help to make your dog’s transition easier. When you’re packing up your dog’s things, you’ll want to make sure to bring along any things that help them to feel comfortable while they’re adjusting to their new home. This includes things made from their hair, items that help calm them, and things that remind them of their old home.

 

Protect Your Cat’s Sensory System While Wrapping It

While it may be tempting to wrap your cat up in a fuzzy blanket, you don’t want to do this. Cats have a lot of sensory systems, including their sense of touch, and when you wrap them up in a blanket, they won’t be able to get the proper amount of this sensation. This will only cause them a lot of stress and discomfort during the move. Instead, make sure to only bring along items that are soft and padded, like a bed, a blanket, or soft kitty toys. These items will help to keep your cat comfortable during the move without causing them any pain or stress.

 

Wrapping up

Moving with pets can be incredibly difficult and stressful. Knowing how to move with pets can make the transition from one home to another much easier. This includes knowing how to safely house your pet while packing up the family for a new adventure.
