5 Things to Know When Moving With Pets

Having a plan is essential for moving day, but what about when it comes to moving with your pets? Moving is stressful enough as it is, so the last thing you want is to have to worry about getting your pet acclimated to a new environment.

Here are five things that every pet owner should keep in mind when moving with their furry friends:

Keep Your Pets Entertained

Moving day is not only stressful for humans but pets as well. To keep your pets from becoming anxious, it is essential to make sure they have a way to occupy their time and energy throughout the move.

Consider taking your dog for an extra walk or more playtime. Playing, whether it be with a ball or chasing after the vacuum cleaner, are both high-energy activities that will keep your pet's mind off of what is going on around them. 

Keep Their Daily Routine

While moving does throw off your daily routine, you must do your best to maintain your pet's routine as much as possible. Doing so will help reduce some of the anxiety and stress caused by moving days.

If you have cats, make sure to keep their litter boxes clean and filled with fresh litter.

If your dog usually goes for a walk at 8 am, try setting the alarm for 7:45 and take them out on their usual route one more time before departing for good.


Bring Their Personal Belongings

Just like you, your pet will feel more secure when surrounded by their favorite toys or bedding. If you plan on including your pets in the moving process, be sure to pack "comfort" items that remind them of home.

Contact Your Vet

If your pet struggles with anxiety or sickness while traveling, your vet may be able to provide medicine to keep them comfortable through the process. 

Additionally, be sure to pack a recent vet report containing details of all their vaccinations and current health status.

Keep Your Pet Away From the Action

When moving boxes and packing, it's essential to put your pet away in a closed room. This not only keeps them safer but also prevents damage they may cause by chewing or clawing at boxes.

It also helps the moving process run smoother when you hire professional movers to get the job done while taking care of your pet.
