Moving to Dallas with Pets
Now that you’ve decided to move to Dallas, it’s time to get everything in order so your move goes smoothly. Of course, you can’t forget about your furry friends. Moving with pets can be challenging, you have to think about your furry companion every step of the way. Nevertheless, moving with pets can be manageable when you check off important tasks as you complete them. When you hire our Dallas movers to help you settle into your new home, you’ll have more time to take care of your furry friend’s needs.
Preparing Your Pets to Move
Moving to Dallas with pets is a bit of a process, but you can start by getting in touch with your veterinarian to collect your pets’ records. Also, ask them for any additional prescription medications to last your pet until after the move. Your vet can also recommend another veterinarian in Dallas and let you know about state regulations regarding rabies tags if you’re moving out of state.
Once you’ve obtained your pet’s health records, take the time to prepare an overnight kit for your pet. An overnight kit can help reduce your pet’s anxiety during and after the move. Include items such as a copious amount of food, toys, cat litter, a pooper scooper, and grooming tools. Keeping these items close can help keep your pet calm during a big move.
Tie up any loose ends for your pet such as updating their ID tags with the new address and best contact number, just in case they get lost. In addition, double-check if their microchip works and is entered into a recovery system.
Taking Care of Your Pet During the Move
After our Dallas movers have you packed and ready to go, you can tend to your pet’s needs during the move to help reduce their anxiety. If you need to stay in a hotel when you’re moving long-distance with pets, make sure to call ahead and confirm whether the hotel is pet-friendly or not. Having a safe place to sleep that’s not the car can help your pet deal with the move.
For small pets, use a kennel to keep them safe in the vehicle while you’re moving to Dallas. Before Moving Day, you can help them become acclimated to the kennel by having them sleep in there for a while and reward them with treats. Take the extra measure to make them feel safe in the kennel by draping a blanket over it.
After Moving with Your Pet
Once you move to Dallas, don’t let your cat or dog out just yet. As our Dallas residential movers are carefully moving your boxes and furniture into your new home, help your pet become familiar with their new home, allocating a designated area for them. If you’re moving with a large dog, you can tie their leash in the yard to keep them from getting lost among the mayhem.
