Moving itself is a stressful process. Often times there are goodbyes involved, sentimental feelings about the home itself, a strict timeline...not to mention the high cost of doing it the right way.
One thing that can add stress to a move is the added responsibility of caring for a pet. Unfortunately, you were not able to have a conversation with them ahead of time to let them know that everything will be okay and you are not abandoning them, so the stress of change will likely not sit well.
A stressful and chaotic move can send your pet directly into sensory overload and give them a dose of unnecessary stress that could have been avoided. In an effort to keep all parties calm, consider these steps.
