Best Tips for Moving with Pets

#1 Plan Ahead

Veterinary Check-Up

Before the move, schedule a visit to the veterinarian. Ensure your pet is healthy and up to date with vaccinations. Discuss any concerns you have about the move and ask for advice on keeping your pet calm.

Update Identification

Make sure your pet has a collar with an up-to-date ID tag. Consider microchipping your pet if they aren't already. Ensure the microchip information is current. Making sure all of your information is updated will give you peace of mind in case your pet gets out and they are in an unfamiliar place.

Travel Arrangements

If you're traveling long-distance, plan your route with pet-friendly stops. Ensure you have all necessary documents for your pet if you're crossing state lines or traveling internationally. You may also want to start taking them in the car with you now and gradually increase the distance so they will get used to being in the car.

#2 Pack Their Essentials Separately

Food and Water

Pack enough food and water for the journey and a few days after you arrive. Sudden changes in diet can upset your pet's stomach, so stick to their regular food. You won’t want to have to dig through boxes after moving all day to find their food so packing separately will ensure that you have everything that you need.

Toys and Comfort Items

Bring your pet's favorite toys, blankets, or bedding to provide comfort and familiarity. This will help them settle into their new home and start to recognize it as their new space.

Medical Supplies

Bring any medications your pet needs, along with a copy of their medical records. Even if they don’t need them every day, having any medication that they may need on hand will give you an extra sense of comfort when moving with your pet.

#3 Create a Safe Space

Designated Area

Set up a quiet room in your new home where your pet can stay initially. This room should contain their bed, food, water, and litter box (for cats). Gradually introduce them to other areas of the house once they're settled. This will allow them to ease into the new space and also keep them safe while you unpack and put things away.

Familiar Items

Place familiar items in their safe space, such as their bed, toys, and a piece of clothing with your scent on it. These items will help comfort them in the new environment.


Stick to your pet's routine as much as possible. Feed them at the same times and take them for walks or playtime as usual. Consistency will help them adjust more easily.
