Pawsitively Stress-Free Tips for Moving Pets

Whether it is a furry, scaly or feathery pal, your pets have always been part of your family and when moving home you cannot afford to leave them behind. But just like humans’ pets also go through moving anxiety and stress. As a pet owner, you need to be aware and mindful when shifting your pets and reducing their discomfort.

Tamam Movers, expert movers and packers Dubai in Dubai, know what it takes to make your move both for you and your pets a less stressful one. In this post our home movers have collated a few useful tips to make the transition easier for your pets to their new home.

Keep your pet in a safe and secluded space

A lot of commotion and noise occurs during moving. Shifting of boxes, furniture and a change in routine can freak your pets out. Hence, it’s important to set up a designated area where your pet can feel safe, secure and comfortable during this time. This can be a room or a specific area in your home so that they are away from screeching and frightening sounds.

Also keep your pet’s familiar belongings, such as their bed, toys, and blankets. These familiar scents will help them feel more at ease in their new surroundings. It’s also a good idea to provide them with a soft bed, where they can retreat if they feel overwhelmed.

Pack and place your pet’s essentials

When preparing your pet for the move pack an essentials kit for your pet. This kit should include everything they need to stay comfortable and content during the travel time. The items can include food and water bowls, medications, collar and ID tags, bedding, toys and treats. Having these essentials will help ensure that your pet’s basic needs are met, and they remain calm even during the moving chaos.

Scheduling a vet visit before moving

Before moving to a different city or state, it’s best you visit a vet to check your pet’s health, update their medical records and vaccinations. Also discuss any concerns you have and request calming medications or strategies to reduce your pet’s stress during the journey. This step will ensure your pet is in good health and you are well-prepared and confident for the shifting too.

Maintain your pet’s routine

Even though you are juggling several tasks at hand, make it a point to maintain your pet’s routine. Give them their food on time and take them for regular walks and running time. This will help them cope and minimize their stress/anxiety level.

Also, when they reach their new home, provide positive reinforcement with a lot of petting and treats. Once they seem to adjust. and become more comfortable, gradually expand their access to the rest of the house.

Observe your pet’s behavior

During the initial weeks, monitor your pet’s behaviour. If they show signs of stress or anxiety, such as excessive painting or hiding and refusal of food, get them checked by vet. Medications and timely advice can help them get back to normal and thrive in their new surroundings.

By taking these steps, you can help minimize your pet’s stress and ensure a smoother transition to their new home.
