Keeping Pets Safe during a Summer Move

Pet owners regard their furry friends as part of the family, which is why it is important to care for pets appropriately and keep them safe at all times during a summer move. Moving can be a stressful time for all of the family members and the change in location can also affect your animals.

Register with a Veterinarian in Advance

Unfortunately, you never know when anyone in your family may become ill – even a pet. This is why it is important to register with a new veterinarian before you move to your new home, or as soon as you arrive. The safety of your pet is highly important during the summer. At this time of year, fleas and ticks are common, so don’t wait until it’s too late.

Plan Transportation Methods in Advance

If the journey to your new home is long, plan all of the important aspects before you head off. To ensure pet safety during the summer, it is essential to take a selection of resources with you for the journey, such as water, food and blankets. To break the journey up a little, why not stop for a break to let your pet get some well needed fresh air?

Flying can be a little more difficult because you need to arrange a safe and secure place for your pet prior to travel. Notify your airline well in advance and let them know that you will be travelling with a pet.
