Basic Guidelines for Moving with Pets

If you have pets, you already know that they require special care during unusual circumstances, and this is especially true when considering the circumstances of a move. With as much work and planning you have ahead of you for simply moving yourself and your family, it may seem overwhelming to consider the special arrangements you’ll need to make for your pets. But by following the simple suggestions provided in our guidelines for moving with pets, you and your pets will be able to complete the moving process easily and without any unnecessary complications.

Some pets can become extremely frightened by travel, and you’ll probably already be aware of it if your pet falls into this category. Have your pets checked at the veterinarian before moving; it may be recommended that your animal receive a calming or sedating medication to keep them from becoming overly agitated during the moving process.

Whether flying or traveling by car, pets need to be properly prepared for the move. Under no circumstances can pets be transported on a moving van or truck with the rest of your possessions, so take care to ensure that you will have the proper space in your car or make flight arrangements that will include your pet.

Prior to your move, obtain the state and local regulations for pets in your new community. Depending on the number and type of animals you have, you may be required to make some special accommodations for your pets.

Upon arrival at your new home, remember that there will be a lot of activity going on. Added to this is the fact that your pets will find themselves in a new and strange environment. Because of these circumstances, you will need to make special arrangements for tending to your pets in the first days at your new residence. Keep your pets leashed at all times during the move, as the confusion could cause them to run off. If you cannot devote the care and attention your pets need during this busy time, consider hiring a pet care service to “baby sit” your animals for at least a few days.
