Moving Your Pets the Right Way
Most pets are resistant to change, being territorial by nature, which is why a move may be particularly hard for them. These factors should also be addressed when you plan for a move, as many people make the mistake of not considering their pets when they plan to move to a new place.
One thing to consider is the new home or neighborhood's pet-friendliness. Especially in the home, look for places and situations and environments that might not be conducive to the well-being of your pet. Like the way you scope out the place for yourself, the same should be done for your pets.
You also need to locate nearby animal clinics, veterinarians, and pet stores for your pet's needs before you get to your new home. It would be much more difficult to hunt for these things when you still have to deal with the tasks of unpacking and integrating yourself into the new community and neighborhood you are in.
Some pets (like dogs) also feel uncomfortable travelling in cars at times, especially for long distances, so you might want to break your pet in a bit and take them for short trips in your car until they get used to it. This is so you won't have a more difficult time with them come moving day.
