Tips for Moving with Pets

Real Estate Agent

Moving is not only a stressful experience for the two legged members of the family but pets can be extremely stressed and confused as well.Take a look at our tips for moving with your pets.

1. Prepare your new home - Get their water out, bed, crate, familiar toys etc. Be sure to make things as consistent as you can with your previous residence.  Also make sure there aren’t any hazards such as a hole in a fence or inside the house that your frightened pet may get out/stuck in.

2. Keep your pet separate: Chaos will most likely frighten your pet even further.It is best to keep your animal away from it. Try and keep them in the yard or a secluded room.  If you have the option to keep them at day care that might even be better.

3.  Update tags- This is so extremely important.  If your animal does happen to get out you want to make sure they are able to be brought back to you safely.  

4.  Find a new Vet- Make sure to find a new veterinarian before moving to the new location. You can do your research online with places like Angies List.  You will want to make sure to bring your old vet records and have prescribed meds on hand. 

Hopefully these tips will help make you and your furry family member more comfortable during your move.  Pets are part of the family and it is our job to treat them that way!
