It takes a bit of adjusting when you move into your new apartment in Charleston, SC. You have to get familiar with the space, the city, and your new neighbors. And just like you, your pet needs time to become accustomed to a new home and new faces too.
If you’ve just moved into a new apartment with your pet, using your pet's favorite food bowl, bedding and toys will help in getting your pet to feel at home. If your pet will have free-roam of your apartment, let him/her come out of the cage or crate whenever possible by leaving the crate open.
Try to keep your pets routine as normal as possible during as much of the move as possible. If you regularly feed, exercise or play with your pet at certain times, continue to do so. This may help reduce the chances of it getting upset.
Hopefully you have been able to get a recommendation for a veterinarian from your previous vet, if this move was not local for you. Once you yourself are settled in, locate and visit a veterinarian. Abberly at West Ashley is a pet-friendly apartment community, so feel free to ask us any questions.
