Moving With Pets

Moving with pets from one destination to another is very difficult. There are many factors that you must take into consideration when you are moving pets. The first thins that you must do when you move your pet is to take it to the Veterinarian for a check up. One should carry all the reports of the pet when moving.

A travel carrier should be bought before you move your pet. It should be big enough for the pet to fit into. The pet may want to sit, stand and lie down when needed so the travel carrier must be large enough with good ventilation, lining and a protective door.

When moving with pets one must make sure that the pet has an ID tag on its neck especially with dogs and cats. During the pet move it is necessary to make your pet ready for the moving day. Pets are very sensitive so on the moving day one should keep the pet away from all the moving activity. It is wise to keep a friend to watch the pet on the moving day.

If you are driving your pet make sure that the travel carrier is with you. Pets do not like driving for long distances and moving with your pet can be tiresome. There are many things that you should take with you when you move your pet. Don't forget to carry bed sheets and medicines.

For bigger pets like dogs and cats who do not like car transport make sure to carry a leash. You have to stop your car and give the pet rests during car transport drives.

Moving with your pet by air flights too needs certain considerations. You must check with the Airlines if they have any restrictions with your pet. You can call the helpline of the airlines and check. If the airline does not have any problems with the pet move than make sure to carry all the health certificates of the pet just in case it falls sick
The travel carrier of the pet can also be taken with you. During the pet move you may have to sedate the pet if the situation demands.

While moving with your pet makes sure not to feed it too much. For dogs you must take them out for long walks before the pet move.
