Moving isn't easy for pets. If you are moving your pets, here are some helpful tips and hints

We all love our pets and when you aren't moving, they are great to have around! So what do you do when you have to move with pets? There are many things that you can do that will not only help you out where moving pets are concerned, but it’s also a good time to update some things regarding your pets as well.

Here is a list of some things that you should try before moving with your pets.

Call the veterinarian and ask for the pets medical records and shot records. You never know when you are going to need them for your next visit to the new veterinarian at your new location.

Get a sitter! Moving day is just as stressful on your pets as it is on you. They can get in the way of the movers or run out of doors that are left open. The pet may not understand what’s going on and this can cause stress to the animal. It’s just better to get a sitter for your moving day to help you and the pets out.

Don’t forget to get your pets tag updated with your new address information. This is really inexpensive to do and pets can get confused or lost in a new place. Be sure to ensure that they can be returned to you if they get out.

If you are traveling with your pet in a car, lay blankets down, stop often for water and be sure that your pets have ventilation especially if it’s hot outside.

Make sure that you have prepared and inspected your new home prior to bringing your pets there. Check the fences, cubby holes and spaces where they can potentially get out of the house.

If your pet is on medication, be sure that you have plenty on hand and that you don’t pack it into a box where it could potentially be difficult to find.

Don’t leave your pet in the car for too long. When you are making a long road trip to your new location, it’s easy to stop for breaks. However, laws in each state are different when it comes to leaving pets in the car. Be sure to look up the local laws on leaving pets in the car in each state that you will be traveling through.

If your pet has really long hair, brush the pet prior to traveling to avoid getting hair all over the inside of the vehicle. This can make for an uncomfortable trip in some cases.

Don’t forget the leash! Even though some pets aren't going anywhere, the last thing that you want is to get a citation for breaking a leash law. Better to be safe than sorry.

Be sure that you make a first aid kit for the car. This is good for both humans and pets in case something happens along the way.
Always have cash on hand before traveling. You never know if you are going to need cash and if an ATM will be available. This also helps for last minute purchases in case your forgot anything.
