UK Animal Delivery
A new pet, a new farm animal, or anything in between, sometimes we need to transport our pets. It could be that you just found an animal for rescue or for sale and need to get them to you. Perhaps you’re moving and lack the bandwidth to move the animals yourself. Maybe you have just sold an animal and the buyer requires transport. From livestock to dogs, cats, and reptiles; no matter what the case, you could find yourself in need of an experienced and safe animal courier.
Acclimating an Animal to a New Home
After transport, many animals will have a bit of stress remaining. It’s best to ease them into their new home.
If you have a reptile coming, be sure to have a terrarium that is the proper size, a heat lamp, and the correct food. Let them get a good feel for their surroundings before taking them out of the terrarium.
If you have a dog or cat being transported, section off a room of your home for them to explore first. This will let them get used to the scent of your home. Put some of your clothing in the room, some toys, food and water bowls, and a litter box as needed. Play with them calmly and quietly; letting them come to you first.
For livestock, clean out their new stall or stable, and introduce them to it. You may want to keep them separate from your other livestock at first, letting them get used to the area. Let them rest as needed the first day.
Above all things, be sure to show your animal patience during the first few days in their new home.
