Transitioning to a new home can be hard on the furry members of your household. Here are some tips to make your next move as smooth as possible for your pets.
Board Your Pet on Moving Day
Movers can let out your pet unintentionally. Avoid this by boarding your pet or asking a trusted friend or family member to pet sit.
Keep an Essentials Box
Just as you should keep essentials with you during a move, it can be helpful to create the same essentials box for your pet. Include prescriptions, favorite toys, familiar items and their bed.
Make it Familiar
Set up a small area with your pet’s toys, food and bed. Keep routines as similar as possible. Allow your pet to get acclimated to the house.
Fill Out the Paperwork
Update their tags or microchip information to the new address and phone number and request that your previous vet transfer records to a local clinic.
