MOVING WITH PETS
Moving is not only stressful for you or your children, but for your pets as well. As pets cannot be carried on the moving van, preplanning the move of your pets is important.
Make sure to get a copy of your pet’s health records from your veterinarian. You may also ask your veterinarian for any recommended professionals in your new location. You may also contact the Humane Society for recommendations.
It is important to contact your new town or city prior to your move to ask what their required paperwork or licenses are for your pet and how to go about getting them. Also ask about any city ordinances pertaining to your particular type of pet.
Ensure your pet is properly identified and tagged prior to transport, including an ID tag with your name and destination address and vaccination tags.
If possible, transport your pet yourself in your vehicle. If your pet has seldom been with you in your vehicle, you may want to take them on short rides prior to the trip to acclimatize them to the vehicle.
You may want to purchase a pet travel carrier for the trip. The carrier should be large enough for the pet to stand, turn around and lie down in. The carrier should have ample ventilation, a good bottom lining, and a secure door closing.
For your trip, make sure you bring along plenty of water, your pet’s favorite food, treats, toys and leash. It is also important to stop at regular intervals to exercise your pet. If you have to leave your vehicle, do not leave your pet in the car for any length of time during hot, humid weather or very cold weather.
If you will be staying in motels while you are traveling, make sure the motel will accept your pet. If you leave your pet in the room while you are out, make sure you put the “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door.
If you are not traveling by car and are not able to take your pet with you, you may ask your mover for any recommended pet transportation services
