Take the stress out of moving
Make sure your pet has a microchip and is wearing a sturdy collar with an identification tag that is labeled with your current contact information.
Keep A Backup
Keep at least one week’s worth of food and medication with you in case of an emergency. Vets can’t write a prescription without a prior doctor/patient relationship, which can cause delays if you need medication right away. ask for a current copy of your pet’s vaccinations.
Day Of Move
Pets can feel vulnerable on moving day. Keep them in a safe, quiet, well-ventilated place, preferably in a crate. Make sure your pet is familiar with the new crate before moving day by gradually introducing before your trip.
Give yourself plenty of time to work out any arrangements necessary including consulting with your veterinarian and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. If traveling is stressful for your pet, consult your vet or PetMove.com about ways that might lessen the stress of travel.
Pets may be frightened and confused in new surroundings. Pack critical items in a handy spot so they can be unpacked right away. Keep all external windows and doors closed and supervise your pet as they take time to decompress.
