Moving with a pet is as stressful as moving with children, which is why it is imperative that you do your research before you move. Different housing types have their own pet restrictions, while moving into a free standing house has very few restrictions. Avoid the unnecessary stress and do your research before you move.
Schedule a visit to the Vet
Before you move, make sure that you take your per to the vet to get all necessary vaccinations, medications and a copy of all their medical records. Once you have settled into your new home, have a look at booking a visit to the Vet nearest to you for a visit. Your pets are like family and should be treated as such. Make sure that you are visiting a reputable vet, as they will be taking care of all your furry family members medical needs.
Keep Contact Information Up-to-date
Most pets are micro chipped with ID’s, but it is important to keep this information up-to-date. You can update your pet’s contact information online, which makes the process a lot easier than it seems. While the micro chip is reliable, we also suggest that you have your pets collar and contact id information up dated.
Pet vacation while you move
The added noises and movement in your home can create an extremely stressful environment for your pet. For this reason, we suggest that you take your fur babies to a friend’s house for the day, while the move is in progress. Make sure it is a friend that is wiling to give your pets the attention they need on this strenuous day. This will ensure that your pets get their food, walks, medicine and most importantly they will be happier. You will have to make it up to your friend, but it will definitely pay off in the long run.
