Moving With Pets

Before Moving:

  • Have you considered whether your new home is suitable for your pet?
  • Outdoor space and access.
  • Temperature.
  • Inside space and the ability to close off certain areas of the house.

During Moving:

  • Pets are highly sensitive and become stress by changes in their environment. On removal day pets can be upset by:
  • A lack or change of routin
  • Strangers (e.g. Removal company employees).
  • Change of territory.

Considering their needs:

  • Its often best to send them to a familiar person or a kennel for a few days while you move.
  • You should place smaller pets in a quiet place during removal.
  • Keeping cats inside while your moving means they wont wander outside and means. they will be around when you actually need to leave.

When the move is over:

  • Take them into rooms that they are allowed into, and show them their new bed.
  • It’s important that you get them back into their old daily routine as quickly as possible.
  • Before you let cats out, keep them inside for at least 24 hours.
  • It’s a good idea to keep dogs on a lead while you walk them until they are familiar with their new surroundings.
  • Secure the garden.
  • Identity tag and or microchip details need to be changed.
  • If you have pet insurance your policy provider will also need to be updated with your new address.
  • Sign up with your nearest veterinary.
