If you thought moving was stressful enough, try moving with a pet. And it only gets worse when you move overseas. So many things to think about, so many things to take care of. How can you do what’s best for you and your pet without letting this process harm your quality of relationship?
Easy, hire professionals to carry out the pet travel for you. What’s important to remember is you can’t leave things for the last minute, like pet transport vet check-ups. If you can’t find a good vet yourself prior to the move, professionals who have experience with pet transport can provide complete veterinary services, with a quarantine accredited vet.
What pet transport vet services include is health chesks primarily, followed by necessary blood tests, and parasite treatments if needed. In case your pet isn’t micro chipped that’s part of the package too, along with vaccinations, pre-isolation plans, as well as baths, and necessary medications.
The great thing about getting professional help is you have everything taken care of properly, according to the rules and regulations of the country you’re about to move to, which may or may not be something you’re familiar with, so at the end of the day you can be sure of saving up time, avoiding stress, and being able to focus on other parts of the travel.
While you have more time for the packing up, you also have for carrying out your own research about the new area you plan to make your move to. Since it’s the quality of life your pet deserves, it’s up to you as a responsible owner to find out vets and animal hospitals near your new home.
Does your pet have enough of a yard to have fun at? Is the nearest park suitable for your pet’s workout? In case your work requires more of you at the workplace, you also have to take care of finding a dog walker or sitter to do so for you. If you’re lucky and can afford it, a stay at a pet daycare is more than recommended.
Another thing to have in mind is the pet’s food. Perhaps the food your pet adores isn’t available in the country you’re relocating to, perhaps it is, and it’s up to you to find out. If it’s not available, you have to see which is the best alternative, considering the aspect of affordability and how healthy the food is.
