How to Prepare Your Pets for the Big Move

prepare your pets to move

Moving to a new home is exciting and stressful and a lot of work. If you have pets, they feel the stress you’re feeling. They like routine, and when there is disruption to that routine by packing and chaos, it can take a toll on their mental and physical health. However, there are some things you can do to prepare your pets for your big move.

Keep Their Routines Intact

You can’t always keep all routines the same when you’re moving. When it comes to your pets, the closer you can stick to their schedule, the less stress they’ll feel. Keep the same feeding, walking, and other timing in place as much as possible.

Let Them Avoid the Chaos

It might be challenging to keep your pets away from all the moving chaos. A great way to prevent stress, and potential injury, is to get them out of the house when the packers and movers are there. Use daycare or boarding so they can have some quiet time away from the movers. It will also keep them from being underfoot.

Visit the Vet

Before you relocate, especially if you’re moving out of the area, pay a visit to your regular veterinarian. It’s important to get shots and records updated, check their overall health, and get a medical clearance or certificate, as some states require them.
