As your local full service moving Los Angeles company, we have seen countless families
relocate with pets. We understand that your dog or cat is part of your family, and you want to
make the moving transition as easy as possible for them. There are a few things that you will
want to remember to do in preparation to moving when it comes to your beloved furry family
members. See below for a list of things to consider when preparing your pet for your upcoming
1. Prepare an overnight kit: It will likely be quite some time before you have all of your
boxes unpacked and organized. You don’t want any special things for your pets getting
lost in a box that is difficult to relocate. Packing an overnight with the essentials is the
best way to keep track of things for your pet. Consider adding things like dog food, kitty
litter, special toys, grooming supplies, and any necessary medication.
2. Contact your vet: Depending on how far you are relocating it might be worth asking
your local Vet if they have any recommendations on another Vet that would be closer
to your new home. You can also ask to obtain your pets records so that you have them
for your new Vet and make sure that your pet is up to date on all vaccinations since it
might be awhile before they are seen again.
3. Quiet space: It is best if you can keep your pet away from all the hustle and bustle that
is moving day. Try to clear out a private room for your pet, preferably in a crate that
you can place a blanket over to keep the space dark and comfortable.
4. Have your pet travel with you: In order to help maintain as consistent of a routine as
possible try to have your pet travel to your new home with you. As your local full
service moving Los Angeles company, we highly recommend this step as it can help
ease your pets anxiety about the transition.
