Moving With Pets: Things To Consider To Make The Process Easier

Moving With Pets: Things To Consider To Make The Process Easier

Let’s face it – moving to a new house is both challenging and stressful. And when you have pets with you, it doesn’t only add to the logistics, but it’ll also give them a fair amount of stress. That said, make sure you spend time thinking about how you’re going to make the entire process much easier for your furry friends
.
So, if you’re moving with your pets soon, here are some things to consider to ensure a smooth transition for everyone.

1. Pet Laws And Regulations

When you relocate with pets, it’s best to research pet laws and regulations of the place you’re moving. Depending on the location, you may need to educate yourself with all the things that involve them. To ensure you can bring them with you successfully, find out if there are registration and vaccination requirements to meet or fees to pay.

Remember, knowing all of these things in advance can give you enough time to comply with them before the moving day.

2. Updated Tags And Chips

There may be several times during the relocation when your pets may be able to escape, especially if they feel anxious or scared. With this, you may need to update their tags and chips before you pack your first moving box. If you have updated tags, you can make sure that someone will call you in case they runoff. Check whether they have microchips in them. That way, your vet will just scan it to get some information about you and your pets.

3. Talking To Your Vet

Let your veterinarian know that you’re relocating to help you with the moving preparations. For example, you may need to meet your pets’ vaccination requirements. Thus, it’s essential to set an appointment with your vet and talk about how you can ease the process of moving with your furry friends. If you think they suffer from anxiety or any illness, ask the doctor for a prescription. Lastly, ask them if they can recommend a new vet in your destination.

4. Keeping Your Pets Away From The Chaos

During the moving day, the best way to minimize the stress on your pets is by letting them stay in a quiet place. This can mean a separate room where you can keep them away from the action. Make sure the room has a safe temperature as well as sufficient stock of water and food. Also, don’t forget to keep an eye on them regularly. A walk once a day in the park or the backyard can bring some sense of routine to them in the middle of all the changes.

On the other hand, if you can’t check on your pets regularly, you can entrust them to a friend or a pet sitter who will take care of them on a moving day.

5. Hiring Professional Help

Sometimes, moving with pets will become more successful if you have professionals like Movers NYC on your side. With some experts on board, you can focus on ensuring the safety and well-being of your furry friends. For instance, you can leave the logistics to the professionals while you take care of the transport plan for them.

However, if you can find pet-friendly movers, then it’s a plus. There may be professionals out there who are experienced at transporting pets in the safest way possible. 

6. Preparation Of An Easily-Accessible Overnight Kit

As much as you need some essentials during the first night in your new house, you should also ensure you have your pets’ essential stuff prepared in a box. These may include food, litter, beds, toys, and anything that they need upon their arrival. By packing an essential kit, you can keep them at ease during the first few days of unboxing.

Final Thoughts

Your furry friends can be as stressed as you are when moving. The process of relocating and getting accustomed to your new place may cause too much anxiety and tension. Therefore, keep the things listed above in mind to help you figure out how to move with pets without hassle. Also, shop around for several long distance moving companies so you’ll find the perfect relocation partner for your needs.

  3. These are such good tips! I only found one move really made a difference in the right way to Sal when she was alive and that was our last move into a bungalow, I think I was so stressed in the previous place that she just relaxed and understood this was a nicer place to be.

  7. I think it's also good for pet parents to know that pets may not settle in right away and this could lead to behavioral challenges. We just had someone drop their pet off with the rescue I work with after 2 DAYS of the dogs peeing in the new house. So sad.
