I am possibly moving to the United States from Canada for a job, and I'd like to get some insight into some aspects of the immigration process.

I am considering a job offer that will require me to move to Seattle, bringing along my wife, son, two cats, and two gerbils. The employer indicates that they'll arrange a work visa for me, but my wife is a medical professional here and would like to be able to work as well. What steps must we take in order to ensure that -- if she can find a job -- she'll be eligible to work in the US?
If it makes a difference, she's an X-Ray tech/CT tech with a significant amount of experience.
Additionally, I've heard that our pets may present a problem at the border. What do I need to do there?
Lastly, what are the unknown unknowns for my situation? It seems straightforward, but what parts of this move can come up and bite me in the ass?
