It can be stressful to move. Moving day can be stressful if your pet or dog is with you.
These little issues can make moving to a new place stressful.
These are some tips to help furry friends get through the move.
1. Prepare them a bag to sleep in for their first night
Your pets can experience anxiety and fear the first night in a new home. Your furry friend will need plenty of sleep and rest to recuperate from the travels. To help them adjust, you can prepare an overnight kit if their stamina is low.
This kit may include, but not be limited to:
* Dog food* Kitty litter
* Grooming tools
* Hygiene products
Organize familiar household items around your temporary quarters to make moving easier for them. To ease them into the new space, place their pet bed in a corner. You want them to feel at ease the next morning so that they are able to get back to their active selves the following day.
2. Schedule a Vet appointment
It can be a time-saver to take some time to check on your pet. You may have noticed some changes in your pet’s health since your last visit. It is important to get as clear as possible about your pet’s current health. Tell your vet about the move. Ask for prescription medication and a history of your pet’s records. Arrange to obtain copies of all relevant medical records, including laboratory reports, if necessary.
This is a great opportunity to get leads from trusted veterinarian clinics in your city. This will help you identify the right person to call in an emergency. In the best-case scenario, your vet can be referred to you more easily by them communicating behind the scenes.
3. Ensure that your new home follows safety protocols
If your pet touches or eats something that it shouldn’t, it can cause confusion. You may not know where your pet can find food or what it can chew on, especially if you are just starting to relocate.
You want your pet to feel safe in your new home. You must ensure that there are no sharp objects or other objects around the house. It is also important to ensure that the electrical system is safe and efficient so that there are no sparks flying around, causing harm to your furry friend.
Take the time to get to know your garden and any poisonous plants they might ingest. Pets should have the freedom to roam wherever they like without fear of injury.
4. Put them in a quiet place on the day of your move (or with someone else).
Your home will experience all kinds of movement on the day of the move. Cats who have become accustomed to their environment may find it frightening to move to a new place. They might be frightened and act out.
It’s best to put them in a quiet place, such as the master bedroom before moving day arrives. They will be less stressed by the constant noise in an enclosed area. Before you move them into their new home, give them a blanket, a bed, and a litterbox.
It will be more enjoyable for you and your pet. You can also call a friend, or a kennel, to take your pet to a friend’s house.
5. Let them ride with you, not in the moving van
Place your pet cat or dog in a carrier on the back seat. You should secure them with a seatbelt. You should ensure your large dog, such as a Labrador/Golden Retriever, can fit into the back seat. You can test your plans and see if your dog will fit in your car.
It’s a good idea to give your child a toy, or something to chew on if it’s their first trip in the car. If the ride is going to belong, this can help ease their anxiety. You can also give them a blanket to help them relax during the ride.
6. Update their Microchip Information
Without a microchip, it will be difficult to locate your pet if they escape your home. To prevent mishaps, contact your vet to update your pet’s microchips and tags with the new address. This will allow you to reunite with your pet in the event that they go missing.
7. Use caution when handling your guinea-pig
Do you plan to bring along a pet of smaller stature? They also need gentle care and love!
Guinea Pigs are curious and open to new surroundings. You should make sure they are in a safe cage so they don’t get jostled about.
You can bring them with you in your car. It is best to take them along in your vehicle. Make sure they have good bedding and ventilation. To prevent your pet from running away, keep a leash on them when you take them out for fresh air.
