tips for moving with pets

Veterinarians gave some tips on how to make moving into a new home more comfortable for your pet.

There are no the same scheme for all animals.So, only your doctor can give the right piece of advice.

Try to pay enough attention to the animal, play with it, walk. You need to transport your pet in a special box. If it is the first time for your pet, then you should show the box a few days before the move, otherwise it will cause a bigger stress for the animal at the day of moving.

It is better for animal not to see how all things and furniture are taken out of the house. This will cause a big stress for the animal. You can also take your pet to a special hotel for pets. They will take care of your pet properly. If you do not want to leave your pet with strangers, then you must take care that your pet feel comfortable at the day of moving. For example, you can take your pet in another room and ask the employees of the moving company to take things out of this room at the last moment, and then take the pet to the spare room.

Do not leave the animal in the car unattended. It is important for dogs to see the road. On the contrary, it is better for cats not to see the road, as there have been cases when a cat returned to its old house.

Put it on the floor, open the door and let your pet decide when to get out. Get all pet`s favorite toys, its carpet, plates, favorite blanket.

Remember, for an animal, moving is a stress and your task is to do everything possible to help your pet to overcome this day without a stress. And your pet will be grateful for that.
