Tips for Moving with Pets

Moving with cats and dogs can be tricky – as these animals are smart enough to perceive the transition, which can be stressful for them. In this blog entry, the residential moving experts here at Noah’s Ark Moving & Storage will detail some fantastic tips for moving with cats or dogs.

Visit the Vet

Make sure to have a vet visit before you move. You want a full proof of all medications, vaccinations, and all necessary paperwork. If you’re moving to a new State, you may require a health certificate for your pet. We recommend taking care of this in advance of your move.

 

Boarding Pets

Animals with separation anxiety might have a hard time with this, but by keeping your pets at a different location during the moving day, you won’t have to be concerned with them running away or potentially being injured during the moving process.

 

Keeping Routine

Pets are sensitive to changes in routine, which can really stress them out. Make sure that you allow your pets to get used to what’s going on over time, as slowly as possible, and they will respond better. Bring a familiar item with them during the move like a favorite toy or blanket.

 

Pet Boxes

Make sure your pets get used to their carrying case by giving them a chance to explore and sit in it over time in advance of the move. This should be done with both dogs or cats. The more time you have to get your pets used to sitting in the kennel, the better they will react when housed in it during the move.

 

Identification

Make sure that identification is always kept on your pet’s body on a collar. Make sure their collar fits properly, and that their tag is both secure and has a phone number for you on it.
