Moving your family to a new home, especially far away, is a stressful endeavor. If you are moving with pets, the move can be even more complicated. Dogs and cats can get just as upset about such a big change just the same way you or your children might.

Check out the video below for tips on how to move your pets safely and comfortably. The Humane Society has a lot of great advice that just might save your big day.

What’s in the Video

You will learn a lot about different products that can really help to reduce your pet’s stress during the move. For example, they’ll show you about the thunder shirt. This can swaddle your pet and help give them reassurance during this difficult time. Watch the video for a demonstration, but the thunder shirt is really very easy to put on. There are lots of different versions on the market. You can pick out just the right one for your pet. Be sure to get the right size/weight class. It’s important that the vest fits comfortably for the optimal effect.

They’ll also show you a special diffuser that can be used to help calm your animal. Who knew that a calming smell could be just as helpful to your dog or cat as it is to you!

If those don’t spark your interest check out the special collars for cats and dogs that they talk about. This just might be the alternative that you are looking for.

You might be surprised just how many products are out there for your pets.
