Moving from one home to another can be hectic for everyone who but pets can pose a few added issues. Pets sometimes have a hard time being in an unfamiliar environment or crated up for lengthy periods of time. We all love our furry babies and we want what is best for them, so I wrote down my thoughts on some great tips for moving with your furry family member. A little planning goes a long way so let’s plan our pet’s situation well before making the family move. Tips for Chula Vista Residents Moving with Pets are below:
-City and State Laws- Crossing state lines brings new laws and cities often have their
own ordinances. Contact the State Animal Health Dept. or the city clerk to get
the local laws and ordinances to ensure you can legally have a pet there.
–Vaccinations Are Up To Date– Get a copy of your pet’s shots from your veterinarian
and keep it in an easy to access location. A list of accredited vets can be found
-ID Your Pet- Your pet should have a tag that includes their name, your name and your
new address. Your phone number
too as your neighbors may not even recognize
your pet and they can at least call the number on the collar.
-Transporting Your Pet Via Airplane- Make the airline
aware as far ahead as you can
And you will need a crate as they do not provide them. No food for 5 hours prior
to the flight and water at least two hours before the flight.
-Transporting your Pet Via Car- Even in a car you will need a restrain
t for your pet.
Try some small drives with your pet to get them used to the car and if too
stressed you can ask your Vet for a mild sedative. Limit water and food as well. -Make Your Pet Comfortable in the New Home- Pets
like familiarity so use their same
and food bowl. Try and place them in the same areas as they knew in
their old residence. Keep the same feeding schedule and dogs should be taken
for a walk in the new community as soon as possible to help in acclimating them
to their new environments.
