Moving to a new place is always stressful. Though it is often made for better and the expectations are great, the process is not easy and often connected with negative emotions.
The perfect case is to pack and pay someone to do the job. No matter how careful a man is, there is always something unexpected to happen, something to be lost, to be transported to the wrong place or the worst – to be broken and absolutely useless and not possible to be fixed and used again.
1. Of Human and Pets
Though anyone feel more confident with his things and the furniture and other objects one is used to see and is using every day, the tables, glasses and anything else that can be broken, are easily replaced.
The humans and the animals on the other hand are not. So special attention has to be paid to what is happening with the emotional status of the people and the other members of the family like the pets.
2. The process of Moving for Animals
In the process of moving, the animals, that are living with the family are also living through the changes in their own way. There are few steps though that will make the new things easily acceptable and less stressful.
The most important thing to remember and to keep in mind all the time, is that pets can not talk. So if it gets lost during moving, which is very likely to happen, it will not be able to tell the address. Some pets like the dogs may find their way back home alone, but this is a little useless skill, when moving to a new place. What the owner can do to prevent serious situations is to make sure his pet’s tag is updated and the phone and address are correct and easy to be read. Include as much information as it is possible, so you will not regret later.
The second good thing to do is to take all the records of the pet from the veterinary, in order to give it to the new one and to make sure that the pet will be treated properly with all its medical history available.
3. Taking Care for Your Beloved Pets
Taking care for pets is very close to taking care for small children. What is most important for the kids is also important for the pets. No matter what a man is doing, one has always keep an eye on them and food and first aid medications close enough.
In this case it is good idea to ask the doctor for a prescription refill before start the moving. Due to the fact that the pets can not take medications without seeing a doctor first it will be nice to have some of the most important once in case of emergency. Going to a doctor may take some time and time is important in case of emergency.
4. In the Day of Moving
In the day of the moving choose nice light well ventilated room and keep the pet there while caring out the furniture and the luggage. This will prevent the animal from wondering what is happening and some unexpected accidents with people it does not know coming in and out of the house. It will also keep it safe from someone stepping at it while caring something big. Movers also can drop something if the pet is running in their legs and cause tripping.
Make sure the driving will be safe with putting the pet in a crate. The crate also has to allow easy and free access of air in it and putting the pet in it several time in it before the trip in order to get used to it is very good thing to do.
