Tips to Make Your Pets Comfortable While Relocation

Things to keep in mind while relocating pets

BY PUJA GUPTA

Relocating with pets has always been a nitty-gritty moment for the masters, so just think how anxious it could make your pets. They easily get irritated when we make any changes in their habitat or their living environment. Such problems don’t come with a magical solution. Aakanksha Bhargava, CEO of PMR, underlines few tips that could make your beloved companion’s experience a bit calmer and enjoyable.

Closely research the pet import laws in the place that you’re relocating

First things first, get all the paperwork done before moving to the desired location. Basically paperwork is needed only when you are planning to cross state lines or planning for air travel, only then you have to keep your papers in order. In case if you are moving a few blocks away there is no need for paperwork.

Talk to your vet

Before shifting, you should talk with your veterinary doctor over the issue, and seek their guidance. You should visit the veterinarian to get all the important vaccinations, medications and records updated before leaving for the new place. It is also essential to find out if your pet needs to be tranquillised. If yes, then would it be safe for your pet or not.

Once you have reached your destination, find a vet who can visit your place at regular intervals. Just like humans they also need to be taken care of.

Work with a pet relocation service company

If you are worrying a bit about your pet relocation, you should immediately consult with a pet relocation agency. Their mentorship can help you in this difficult moment. They will offer you the state of the art services, which can resolve your issues up to some extent. Such agencies will provide you every support you have needed, the only thing you have to assure them, is you obey all of your destination’s pet import rules.

Start getting your pet early in their kennels as early as possible

Relocating a pet by keeping him inside a kennel is one of the safest and secure methods. Pet kennels provide a lot of benefits to the pets irrespective of their mode of travel. That’s why it’s been suggested to acquaint your pet with the kennel before relocations. Higher the association of pet with the kennel, lower will be the trouble during relocation. A professional pet moving company not only help one with moving their pets along but also takes care of the basic yet crucial details such as tranquilising details which are a must and should be affixed to the container. One can find essential details, such as time at which tranquiliser was given, type of sedation, dosage and estimated durations for tranquilising.

Apart from this, proper feeding and watering requirements should be kept along with kennel. All the necessary feeding instructions should be affixed to the container along with the supplies at the outer top side of the container.

Why should we use a kennel?

  • Reduces travel anxiety.
  • Prevents injuries to the pets.
  • Maintains the supply of food and water.
  • Prevents any kind of littering inside the vehicle premises.

Get all your documents in order

Make sure that you have all the sets of required documents. The set of required documents will be of rabies vaccines and other vaccinations documents, a letter from your vet allowing the pet to travel, certificates satisfying the pet norms of the desired place is crucial. It is also essential to keep in mind that sufficient information and arrangements regarding quarantine and delivery are also mentioned. Also whether or not the pet is accompanied with an attendant and whether or not the “Live Animal” Label has been correctly identified and attached with the pet’s document & kennel.

Know where your pet will be on running day

Make sure you microchip all of your animals during your last vet visit if they aren’t already chipped. Have all ID tags, collars and leashes accessible on the move-out day to put on your pet on surveillance mode. Keep their food, toys and beds available so you can set them up easily once you get to the new house. Along with checking for anything in the house that you left behind, make sure you count heads before you leave, including kids and pets.

After moving day, don’t let pets roam around the neighbourhood until they are acclimated

Ease your pet into the new house by familiarizing it a little bit. Place their common items in the places they’re used to – bowls, litter boxes, scratching posts. For example, if their bowls were in the old place in the kitchen, keep the bowls in the kitchen in the new place. When their litter box is inside the toilet, put it in the new place in the kitchen. Also, don’t let your pet to roam in the surrounding until they get familiar to everyone. (IANS)
