Do you think that relocation stress is a problem only for people who consider changing their home? Not at all! Their fluffy friends also need some backing up to cope with removals. But what can you do to help your pet to overcome relocation stress?
Actually a lot. It’s only up to you whether your cat or dog will deal successfully with removals or not. The following simple steps will teach you what can you do to ease your fluffy friend.
1. Pay attention to your pet before moving out
Most people, who consider moving out, are too busy to look for a good removal company to pack their stuff or to plan how to decorate their new home and don’t have any time for their devoted friends. Don’t tread in their steps! Your pet deserves some love and you should spend some time taking care of him/her.
2. Moving day
Your pet needs some special cares during moving day and you shouldn’t forget that. There will be plenty of strangers who will come in and out all the time and this could make your fluffy friend extremely anxious and sometimes even aggressive. The best way to prevent that is to keep your pet away while movers are loading and unloading your belongings.
3. New home
The last step is adaptation. This shouldn’t be overlooked because it’s the riskiest period. Most animals are feeling very confused in a new environment and it’s very likely to try to escape. Be careful and always keep an eye on them the first couple of days after moving in.
Don’t neglect your fluffy friends during a move. They also need some help to get over stress.
