Moving Home is Stressful for you and your Pets.
Moving home is right up there on the list of life’s stressful events! And if it makes us humans crazy, imagine how your pet must be feeling!
I moved home and country several times. It does not matter how many time you move with pets there is always a bit of worry involved.
One thing is for sure you learn over the years what to do and what not to do.
What does a move mean for your Pet?
Losing the familiar sights and smells of their old house can be upsetting for your four-legged friends. You should not be surprised if it takes up to a few weeks for them to settle into their new surroundings.
In addition to the stress of adapting to new surroundings, the journey getting there can also be very traumatic for animals.
You have the benefit of knowing what’s going on and that the trip will end with you being settled into a new home.
By contrast, your pet doesn’t know this. Therefore, we suggest that you be patient with them and try to follow the tips listed below.
Few days before you move. Keep Calm and don’t stress.
There are a few tips that have been proven over time to reduce the stress levels in pets, and in doing so, you also lower the stress-level in you.
You can get the Adaptil diffuser or dog collar for your dog to keep him calm. Or when you have a cat you can use the Sentry calming collar or sentry diffuser. I have used both and find those are the best solution that works for me. Yes, you can use essential oils but in my experience with a higher stress level, those Collars and diffuser work better.
