Purchasing and moving into a new home is an exciting step in your life, but it can be stressful for your pet if you’re not proactive. The team at Foxtrot Realty has worked with a lot of families moving with a four-legged animal in Green Valley Ranch, CO. Their experience has provided them with some useful tips for making the move easier for you and your pets.
Use these tips for a smooth and stress-free transition into new homes with your beloved furry friend:
Talk to Your Veterinarian: Your pet may get anxious traveling. Whether you’re going by plane or car, your vet can provide something helpful for the day of the move. Medications or behavior modification techniques are extremely effective at keeping them content.
Find a New Vet: Find your new veterinarian before moving day. This will give you plenty of time to scout out your options and choose someone you’re comfortable with. If something should happen to your pet, it’s always important to have a local vet’s number on hand.
Keep It Normal: The flurry of activity around moving can stress out a pet. Start packing beforehand, so you can transition the home slowly. Keep your pet’s things where they are and try to maintain your usual activities such as going for a daily walk and feeding times. If your pet is moving in a carrier, bring it out a week or two before the move, so they see it around.
Update Your Information: Moving into a new home or condo can confuse your pet, and they are more likely to run away from home just after a move. Don’t delay in updating your address or other contact information on their tags, so someone can contact you if your pet gets lost. You may also want to talk with your vet about microchipping.
No matter why you’re moving, the team at Foxtrot Realty can help you find the perfect houses for sale that will suit you and your pet.
