Acclaimed Redondo Beach movers explains to the everyday moving consumer on how to properly move with their pets

Redondo Beach, CA (PRWEB) September 09, 2012

After hearing the emotional story of Ni Hao, the cat that made a big journey across the sea in a freight container, our Redondo Beach movers were alerted to the fact that some people may not be sure about how to move with a pet. Ni Hao made a two week journey from China to Redondo Beach with no food or water and was extremely fortunate to survive. Using our professional tips compiled by our Redondo Beach moving company will assure that your pet never has to experience such an arduous journey.

When moving a pet the first thing to do is make sure the new location is pet friendly. The last thing anyone would want is to run into issues like climate or regulations in an apartment. Once the pet's living arrangements are in place, there is assurance that on arrival, there won't be any immediate problems providing time to focus on other things. Another precaution to take that will prevent many issues is scheduling an appointment with a veterinarian sometime before the move. This will accomplish several very important things. For one, the pet can get any shots they may need in the future and get an exam to make sure they are healthy. This prevents something from going wrong with their health during or after the move. Also it will take time to find a good veterinarian in a new area which is why it is important to get everything done before hand. While at the vet's office, also make sure to refill any prescriptions you may need so it is not an issue later.

For the move itself, try to keep the pet calm by sticking to the normal daily routine. Let them sleep in your bed, give them their favorite toy, and feed them the food they like, to put them at ease. This will help take the pressure off them, as pets can experience stress just like humans can. It may also be a good idea to get a sedative from the veterinarian to help the pet relax and handle the journey with less altercation. During the move out process keep the pet secured so that they do not run away and derail the move. If traveling by airline, make sure to check with them about their accommodations for pets to ensure your pet will be safe. If travelling by car, plan out the route so there are places for the pet to stretch if they start getting restless. Lastly, pack a goodie bag with things like toys and snacks that will be easily accessible to make the journey less stressful.
