It is no secret that we think Omaha is a pretty great place to live. With safe neighborhoods, top schools, incredible dining and endless entertainment options, it is a top destination for any family to settle into. If you find yourself relocating to Omaha, we want to be the first to welcome you to our beautiful city! And while we know that moving can be very stressful, we also know that the process can be even more stressful for your furry four legged friends. So today, we wanted to give you a few tips and tricks on moving with pets in hopes to make the journey a little easier on everyone. 

Pre-move:

-Make sure your pet is wearing a tight collar at all times with a tag showing your name and number in case they wander out of your sight.
-Ensure you transfer your pet’s records to your new veterinarian to ensure everything is set up and established prior to your arrival.
-When it comes to packing your pet items, make sure to plan ahead. This will alleviate stress for you AND your pet!

While you are moving:

-Be sure to remember any meds and first aid kit that your pet may need. Toys and food are not the only things to remember to keep handy!
-Keep your pet in their crate during the move to ensure they are safe and secure. This will also give you a peace of mind knowing they are not wandering around the chaos without supervision.
-For your drive, be sure to take into account time for regular rest stops. This will give your pet time to stretch their legs and relieve themselves. 

After the move:

-While it is best to establish a veterinarian before you make your move, once you are settled in you can take some time to research emergency clinics in case of an emergency outside of your veterinarian’s office hours.
-Allow your pet to get acclimated by establishing a new routine with them. This will allow them to feel more at home and ease any anxiety that accompanied the move. 
-Right when you arrive, be sure to set out food and water for your pet. We understand you will be anxious to start unpacking your belongings, but pets usually drink a lot of water when they are in stressful situations, so having their food and water out immediately will help them to settle in and ease their nerves. 

Tips for Moving with your Furry Family Members!

by Nancy Heim-berg

Moving day is an exciting time for the entire family....but it is also stressful.  The same stress felt by the 'humans' in the house, are also felt by your pets.  In fact, pets can sense that something big is up, weeks prior to your move!  They pick up on your anxiety and the chaos of their living space.  

In order to make your move a smooth one for your furry friends, follow these terrific tips:

Before Moving Day

1. Visit your Vet for one last checkup, any vaccinations due and to gather all your pets health records.

2. If possible, visit your new home so your pets can get acclimated to their new environment.

3. Create new Name Tags that show your brand new address.

Moving Day

1. Pack an overnight bag specifically for your pet.  Include food, water, favorite toy, and medications, treats, doggie bags for clean-up and sleeping bed.

2. Pack a current photo of your pet in the bag in case they were to get loose of you during the move.

3. Pack your vet records in the bag as well.

4. Keep your pet in your vehicle when making the move.  This helps ease their already high anxiety.

5. Once you arrive at your new home, allow your pet some time to 'sniff' around before bringing in furniture and belongings.
