A. Many pets definitely like things to be a certain way and most do not like little changes, let alone big ones such as moving, even if it is just across town. There are two parts to this question. The first is what can an owner do to prepare an animal for a change to its environment. The second is what can an owner do if a pet doesn’t do well after there is a change to its environment.
Preparing a pet for any change can help it transition through the stressful event better. And the older the pet, the more resistant it can be to change and the longer it takes it to get used to the change. Whether the pet needs to adjust to a move, a new addition to the family (whether it is a baby or another pet), or a remodeling project, most pets need to be given time to adjust to these changes and ways to deal with them as well.
