If moving is stressful for people, think how much pets can get anxious while moving. Pets easily get stressed out when there is a number of unexpected activities in the home or get a new environment. Even, sounds are more stressful to pets, and hence it is important to make the move stress-free while relocating with your pets too. Here are a few tips to make moving less annoying for pets.
Know Pet’s Rules and Regulations
Landlords or home owners may introduce you specific pet rules. Hence, it is important to become familiar with leash laws of your locality or if you require pet ordinances or pet licensing requirements.
Your pet may need medications, certificates or vaccinations depending on the area you are moving. Hence, apart from consulting with local movers in Perth, contact the local animal control facility to address your concern.
Consult With Your Current Vet
Never skip consulting with your current veterinarian, who is a great source to tell what you could do if your pet dislikes travelling or get annoyed easily. The vets are the reliable resource to guide you on behaviour modification techniques or medication to make relocation for your pet stress-free.
Find a Vet at Your New Location
You never know when you need vets, and thus finding a new vet in your new location is necessary before you move. Your current vet may recommend you vets near your new locations. When you search for a new vet, it is recommended to set up an appointment on a date after you set your moving date. Make sure, your pets or you are comfortable with new veterinary practices before facing an emergency.
Take the Copy of Medical Records
Before you leave your new home, make sure your pet’s medical records are ready at your hand. Moreover, find the contact details of the closest animal hospital that keep you ready for an emergency situation.
Update the Identification Tag
Don’t forget to put the new address, phone number in the identification tag clipped in your pet’s collar. In case, your pet carries the identification microchip, don’t forget to update the new information in the database.
Skip the Last Minute Rush
Before you ask your hired furniture removal in Perth to remove the furnishing items, move your pets beforehand to a safe location. If you are lucky enough, you will get a neighbour or friend who wouldn’t mind pet sitting or you could find a pet care centres to take care of your pets.
Never try locking your pets in a room; it would make them anxious due to the noise and a number of activities in home.
Travel with Your Pet for Short Distances before the Final Move
Until and unless you cover a long distance, you can carry your pet by car. While driving on your own, it gives them the sense of familiarity. To prepare your dog for travelling, drive with them for short distances and make them accustomed before the final move. In case you are moving with your pet by air, check all the rules and regulations ahead.
After you reach your new place, don’t let the pets roam freely around, until they get used to the environment or the place. It’s better if you take them to explore some places near your abode.
