Best Tips for Moving with Pets

#1 Visit the Vet Before Moving

Before your move, schedule a visit to the vet for a thorough check-up and to ensure your pet is healthy and up-to-date on vaccinations. Discuss any concerns you may have about the move and ask for recommendations on how to keep your pet calm during the process. Obtain copies of your pet’s medical records and ask the vet if they can suggest a trusted veterinarian in your new area. Having this information handy will make it easier to address any health issues that may arise during or after the move. Taking your pet in for a check-up before you move will give you peace of mind that they’re healthy and won’t have any issues during the move.

#2 Plan for Pet-Friendly Travel

If you're traveling a long distance to your new home, plan ahead to make the journey as comfortable as possible for your pet. For car travel, ensure your pet is safely secured in a crate or with a pet seatbelt harness. Take regular breaks to allow your pet to stretch, relieve themselves, and have some water. If you're flying, check the airline’s pet policies well in advance and make all necessary arrangements, such as securing an approved carrier and booking a direct flight if possible. Familiarize yourself with the pet relief areas at the airport to minimize stress for your pet during layovers. Getting your pet prepped for travel will ensure that they are ready

#3 Pet-Proof Your New Home

Before allowing your pet to explore their new surroundings, take the time to pet-proof your new home. Check for any hazards such as exposed wires, toxic plants, or small objects that your pet could swallow. Ensure that windows and doors are securely closed to prevent any accidental escapes. Set up a designated area for your pet with their bed, toys, food, and water to help them feel secure. Gradually introduce them to different parts of the home to prevent them from feeling overwhelmed. Creating a safe and welcoming environment will help your pet adjust more quickly and reduce stress.
