Prep Your Pets for the Big Move

Your moving day is set and it’s time to start preparing! As you’re making your lists and checking them twice, don’t forget to factor in your furry friends. Here are some tips for making sure the process goes smoothly.

Medical Records. When moving to a different city or state, one of the main things you need to take into consideration is finding a new veterinarian that is the right fit for both you and your pet. If you have family or friends in the area, ask for recommendations, or do your own research by reading reviews and news articles. Once you find one, contact your current vet to initiate a transfer of medical records. Then schedule a “get to know you” appointment shortly after your move.

Transportation. Whether it’s a short drive or a long plane ride, you pet will likely need to be put into a carrier. For most pets, this is a foreign concept, and they require time to get comfortable with it! Start acclimating your pet as early as possible and use comfort items, like treats and favorite toys to make the experience a positive one for your pet.

Acclimation. Pad your moving schedule with ample time to get your dog or cat acclimated to their new home. While the movers are still hard at work, keep them safely away from foot traffic to reduce stress. Once they’ve left, make sure to clear anything that could be dangerous, and block off areas as necessary...then let them free to get a lay of the land on their own!
