Moving can be pretty stressful, and when you have pets, the potential for more stress goes up significantly. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to help make the move stress free for you and your furry friends. In the next two blogs, we will look at a few tips for moving with pets.
Pack your pet supplies in your car
Once you get to your new home, you don’t want to have to search through all of your belongings just to find the dog food. Make sure that you pack all of your pet’s essentials in your car so that they are easily accessible at your new home.
Make sure they are chipped
It may not be something you want to think about, but moving to a new home does present the risk that your pet will run away. If they are extremely familiar with your old home, they may even try to return there. To better plan for this worst-case scenario, make sure your pet is microchipped, and that the chip information is up to date.
Update their tag
Microchips aren’t the only way that a lost pet can be identified. Before you move, make sure you take the time to get them a new tag for their collar with your new address on it. If they get out around your new neighborhood, their collar tag will be the first place someone looks to identify them.
