Planning the Move with Pets
Having telepathically communicated with your beloved pets for
as long as you've had them, you probably know exactly when they're
happy or cranky. There's never a better time for you to utilize
this important skill than during a move.
Know what it'll take for your pets to be comfortable during
each stage of the move: before, during and after. Relocating
isn't just stressful for people. It'll be equally stressful
for your pets. As with humans, pets are very sensitive to
changes in their surroundings. Seeing the house become gradually
emptier may agitate your pets.
Moving companies will not transport anything living. If you
plan to move with your pets, they'll be your sole responsibility.
Unless you're traveling a very long distance via airplane,
it is recommended that your pets accompany you in your car.
Several weeks beforehand, condition your pets to moving and
riding in cars.
Every state has laws regarding animal entry. Your pets must
comply with the health regulations. Before making moving arrangements,
take your pet to its regular veterinarian for a health checkup,
vaccinations, and to inquire about entry permits and sedation.
Ask for a referral in your new area and obtain important documents,
such as your pets' health records and rabies tags.
Animal entry laws may be doubly strict internationally. Depending
on the country, your pet may be quarantined for up to six
months for health inspection. In international pet moving
cases, you may have to consider leaving your pet with a relative
or a friend.
