With all the major concerns of relocation, pets can sometimes get less attention and care than they're used to. Make sure any pet receives these essentials of care in your new home: 
Have your pet wear a collar and ID tag with your name and contact info. 
License your dogs and have your pets vaccinated for rabies. 
Remember to take your pet for regular checkups with a veterinarian. 
Remain patient and loyal with your companion during this adjustment period.
