Relocating With Pets

Moving to a new home can be a stressful experience, especially when you have pets.

As a pet owner, you want to ensure that your furry friends feel comfortable and safe throughout the move. That’s why it’s essential to choose a reliable and experienced moving company like Sol Moves to help you with relocating with pets and all other removal needs.

In this blog, we’ll share some tips for relocating with pets and explain how Sol Moves can make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible.

  1. Plan ahead

Before you start packing, it’s essential to plan ahead for your pets’ move. Make sure to update their microchip information, register them with a new veterinarian if necessary, and research pet-friendly accommodations if you’re staying in temporary housing.

  • Talk to your vet

It’s a good idea to talk to your vet about your pet’s move. They can advise you on the best way to keep your pets calm and comfortable during the journey. They can also provide any medication or sedatives if needed.

  • Pack a pet travel kit

Pack a pet travel kit with your pets’ food, medication, toys, and bedding. It’s also important to have a leash, collar, and ID tags on hand in case your pet gets lost during the move.

  • Keep your pets safe

During the move, make sure your pets are safe and secure. Keep them in a carrier or crate and make sure they have access to water and ventilation. It’s also a good idea to place a familiar blanket or toy in the carrier to help them feel more comfortable.

How To Keep Your Pets Calm During The Move

Moving home can be a stressful experience for both you and your furry friend. Pets can sense changes in their environment and may become anxious or nervous during a move. However, there are several ways to keep your pet calm during a home move. Here we’ll discuss some helpful tips to help reduce your pet’s stress levels during a move.

  1. Keep your pet in a familiar environment

During the move, it’s essential to keep your pet in a familiar environment as much as possible. Consider leaving your pet in a quiet room with their favourite toys and bedding, away from the hustle and bustle of the move. This will help them feel more comfortable and secure.

  • Maintain a routine

Try to maintain your pet’s routine as much as possible during the move. Stick to their regular feeding and exercise schedule and take breaks to play with your pet. This will help your pet feel more relaxed and secure.

  • Use pheromone sprays

Pheromone sprays can help calm your pet during a move. These sprays contain natural chemicals that mimic the scent of a mother dog or cat, which can help reduce anxiety in pets. Spray the pheromone spray in the room where your pet will be spending most of their time.

  • Provide plenty of water and food

Make sure your pet has access to plenty of water and food during the move. Keep their favourite food and treats on hand and make sure they have access to fresh water at all times.

  • Use a carrier or crate

When traveling with your pet, use a carrier or crate to keep them safe and secure. A carrier or crate can provide a sense of security for your pet and help them feel more comfortable during the journey.

  • Give them extra attention

During the move, make sure to give your pet extra attention and affection. Take breaks to play with your pet and give them plenty of cuddles. This will help reassure your pet and reduce their stress levels.
