Moving is stressful for every person. We are the ones who decide, plan and execute the relocation and yet we feel anxious. Just imagine what goes through the minds of our poor pets who have no legit idea of what is going on around them. All the strange activities such as the incoming of many unknown people (packers and movers) in the house who perform weird things such as packing the sofas and beds? The unexpected activities and an unfamiliar environment around the pets make them feel traumatic. So, how can you take care of your pet during these times? Well, for starters, there is no set formula for this purpose; separate measures are needed to be taken for different types of pets. The good news is that the packers and movers in New Delhi include pet relocation facility in their house relocation service packages as well.
Although the movers and packers can help you move them you have to make sure that they are emotionally stable all through the process. The following tips can help you:
Keep your pet away from the scene of action: Taking this step is not just helpful for you but also for the pet. The stress level is increased when an animal is in a very noisy and crowded place. When the movers and packers are around packing your stuff, keep your pet in a different room or send it to your friend or relative if that is possible. If you have a dog, you can keep it in the kennel but make sure that your pet is in a comfortable temperature and has food and water accessible to it.
Pat your pet: Your pet will be very confused these days. It can become aggressive on seeing its favorite mat or couch being closed in boxes. Hence, be certain that it is loved enough to realize that whatever is happening around is not wrong and scary. Take out a minute or two from your busy schedule to pat your pet and rub its back.
Contact your veterinary doctor: This is especially important if you are changing cities or states. When the journey is too long, you have to be sure that your pet animal can handle it. Take it to the vet, get it checked up and update its medical record. Also, keep certain medicines, such as drugs for fever, loose motions, etc. handy for an emergency.
Prepare a handy kit: Keep certain things in a bag which can be easily accessible to you during the journey. You have to keep your pet’s food, toys, and its grooming tools handy, so that your pet is comfortable not just during the traveling time but also in your new home until the entire unpacking is done.
Keep your pet with you if it’s possible: although the packers and movers offer pet shifting, if you can manage your pet in your own vehicle, it will be great. Your pet needs your company and it will not feel comfortable enough in the company of strangers. Therefore, try to manage some space for your pet. However, if carrying your pet with you is not an option, have faith in the movers and packers. Your pet animal will be moved safely and comfortably to your new house.
If you follow these tips, the shifting experience will be as wonderful for your pet as it will be for you!
