Moving with Pets: Don't stress your furry friends.

Moving to a new home is an exciting time, but it can also be stressful for our furry friends.

Pets thrive on routine and familiarity, so a move to a new environment can be unsettling for them.


However, with proper planning and consideration, you can ensure a smooth transition for your pets during the moving process.


Let's explore strategies to help make moving with pets as stress-free as possible.

Start Early and Gradually Introduce Changes:

  • Begin preparing your pets for the move well in advance by gradually introducing changes to their routine and environment.

  • Start packing and moving boxes around the house slowly so that your pets can acclimate to the changes over time.

  • Maintain their regular feeding and exercise schedules as much as possible to provide a sense of stability. Update Identification and Veterinary Records:

  • Ensure that your pets' identification tags and microchip information are up to date with your new address and contact details.

  • Transfer your pets' veterinary records to a new veterinarian in your new location, and make sure you have copies of any necessary vaccinations and medications. Keep Pets Safe and Secure on Moving Day:

  • On moving day, confine your pets to a quiet and secure area of the house, away from the hustle and bustle of movers and open doors.

  • Consider boarding your pets or arranging for a pet sitter to watch them on moving day to reduce stress and keep them safe. Pack an Essentials Kit for Your Pets:

  • Pack a separate bag or box with essential items for your pets, including food, water, bowls, medications, toys, bedding, and any other comfort items.

  • Keep this kit easily accessible so that you can quickly access it when you arrive at your new home. Settling into Your New Home:

  • When you arrive at your new home, designate a quiet and secure area for your pets to explore and acclimate to their new surroundings.

  • Gradually introduce them to different rooms and areas of the house, and provide plenty of positive reinforcement and attention.

  • Stick to their regular routines as much as possible to help them feel more comfortable and secure in their new environment.
