Ask a Vet Archive

When it comes to your pet's health, there's no such thing as a dumb question. Search questions real clients have submitted to our popular Ask a Vet Q&A series, and then submit a question of your own.

  • I am moving to a new home. All my cats have been raised in my current home. The new place is nicer, with less traffic. How can I help it be a good move for them, too?

    During the move itself you want to make sure that the cats are in a safe place that is as quiet as possible. In their carriers in a back room usually works well. In some cases the noise and strangness of the move can cause them to try and escape the house.

    The best way to ease the stress after the move is to keep their routine and schedule as normal as possible. This includes feeding them at the normal time and making sure they have access to their favorite toys and beds.

    When setting up the litter boxes make sure that you show each cat where the litter boxes are placed. This is to keep them from searching for it and can help prevent accidents.
