Dealing With Post-Moving Fatigue In Pets

Are you planning to move to a new neighborhood soon? Other than moving your possessions to your new home, your pets will need to be transported too. However, you need to make the necessary preparations to ensure your pets have a pleasant experience, even though fatigue is inevitable. Pet transportation by a vehicle can be problematic especially if they are not used to being moved or being in an enclosed space. Other than being tired, pets can get sick when they are in a moving vehicle. Sometimes the pet may overreact when you remove them from their usual environment. Luckily, there are easy ways to avoid any unpleasant events during the trip. So, how can you deal with post-moving fatigue in pets? This post will outline some key tips you should consider.

Preparations When Moving

Basic preparations can help your pet have a smooth trip. Some of the things you should do are:

  • Exercise your pet before loading it into the vehicle: It is important to get your pet tired out before you can cage it in a vehicle. Although a tired dog can still be upset when you cage them, a fully rested one is usually worse.
  • Do not feed your pet right before moving them: Avoid feeding your pet right before the trip. Consider feeding him or her some hours in advance so that the pet does not get carsick or answer nature’s call in the car- something that is unpleasant to both you and the pet.
  • Pack appropriate supplies: Your pet should have a comfortable area where they will stay while being moved. Place its blankets or bed down for padding. Also, be sure to bring along treats, water, plastic bags for poop and chewing toys.

Dealing with post-moving fatigue

Since your pet will still get tired after moving, you need to take great care of them to help them relax and get accustomed to the new environment. What should you do if the pet has post-moving fatigue? Here are some simple guidelines.

  • Confine the pet: Do not allow your pet to keep moving around if they are already tired. Keeping them in a smaller enclosed space like a cozy crate will make it easier to observe them and note any significant changes.
  • Allow the pet to rest: One of the best ways to handle fatigue is to allow your pet to rest. The usual long walks and exercise need to be ruled out until the veterinarian states otherwise.
  • Check his or her temperature: Most pets with fevers are normally very sluggish. Prompt veterinary attention is needed if the temperature is over 102.9 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Monitor the symptoms: In case your pet starts to exhibit unusual symptoms like pain and poor appetite, head for an animal emergency hospital or your vet. These signs mean that your pet requires emergency care the soonest possible.

You can prevent post-moving fatigue by preparing your pet before moving and ensuring that they are comfortable during the trip. If you notice any severe symptoms, be sure to consult your vet or take your pet to the nearest animal hospital if you are in a new neighborhood.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
