Yen.com.gh has put together a list to smoothen out the process for both the person moving out and their animals.
Close Proximity to a Veterinary Clinic
It is best to move to areas which have close proximity to a veterinary clinic should in case your pet gets ill. Also, get the health records and prescribed medications for your pets from the previous vet to the new place and ask if they can recommend a vet doctor in your new neighbourhood to you.

Keep Pets in Quiet Areas
You do not want to alarm your pets too much during the moving process. It is best you leave them with a trusted friend for some time or at least keep them in a quiet environment where they can have access to food and water. The noise and frantic movements during the moving process can stress out your pet.
Keep Pet in Your Own Vehicle When Moving
Make sure you have a space in your car for your pet to ride along on the day of moving out. The moving out process is already taking a toll on the animal, it helps when they are surrounded by familiar people and faces when venturing out into unfamiliar grounds.
Maintain Your Routine
When you finally move into your new place, it will take some time for your pet to adjust. It is important not to change your normal routine with your animal like times for feeding them. Make sure to check on them regularly and take them for walks. This will help them to settle in just fine.
