Facts and Fears About Pet Shipping and Quarantine

dog"Does Quarantine Change a Dog Forever?"

Dear PetRelocation,

If a dog must be quarantined and isn't used to doing that, will it change the pet's personality or behavior?

Thanks,

Wendy

 

Hi Wendy,

Most pet owners feel worried about placing their pets in quarantine, but it's important to know that this is a normal part of pet travel that is very safe when handled correctly. We've assisted with many pets' relocations and quarantine stays and have talked to pet owners again and again who started out very nervous but ended up happy and relieved.

Most quarantine facilities are well-kept and offer pets plenty of attention and room to live and play during their stay. In our experience pets are not forever changed following a stint in quarantine -- rather, they quickly go back to being themselves once they're home and suffer no lasting effects.

For further comfort, please read a few stories from our blog about pets in quarantine:

 

As you can see these pets did just fine, and yours probably will, too. If you have any particular concerns please talk to your vet, talk to the quarantine facility you're considering, or you can contact us to speak to one of our experienced Consultants. 

Thanks for your questions, and good luck with your upcoming move!
