Tips For Moving Pets

Pets can become disoriented and frightened by the whole experience of moving. To reduce their stress, be sure that pets are securely penned up or perhaps visiting with a friend when movers arrive. You don't want Rover running away or getting injured underfoot on the day of your move.

If you're relocating cross-country, you may want to fly Fluffy to your final destination. Airlines typically transport animals in the cargo hold. However, if you fly, too, and your pet carrier fits under your seat, you may be able to carry your animal on the plane with you. Check with your veterinarian to be sure your pet can handle the strain and make arrangements with the airline well in advance.

At your new home, keep pets confined for a few days in a limited area like your bedroom, where you can comfort them. Introduce them to the rest of the home gradually, so they don't feel overwhelmed. Do not leave pets unattended outside until they have plenty of time to adjust to their new surroundings, as animals sometimes run away in an attempt to return to their old neighborhood.
