Moving Long-Distance with Pets

by | Jun 3, 2022 | Features

Moving can be a stressful experience for a pet, especially a long-distance move. Pets are aware of change due to all the packing of things in the house and this can be somewhat confusing for them. Therefore, you want to make things easier for them by being consistent and not making any major changes to their food or schedule. Familiarize them with the vehicle they will be moving in, as well as the crate or travel carrier. Be certain to check the laws of your destination, since each state has different laws for pets.

Key Takeaways:

  • Don’t change your pet’s diet at the time of the move as it may upset them.
  • Check state laws, as a health certificate may be legally required when you enter a new state.
  • If flying, check the airline rules and try to book a direct flight.

“Make sure you not only plan to stow your pet in a crate or travel carrier but that you can secure it in the car.”
