- Small Animals
Because rabbits are more often prey than predator in the wild, they experience a great deal of stress whenever their environment changes. Traveling is stressful for rabbits and should generally be avoided. However, when you do need to travel with your rabbit, remember that you still need to be able to provide the water, diet and exercise your rabbit needs on a daily basis. Be sure that if you use a small travel cage, you still provide a hide area to make your pet feel more secure. When traveling by automobile, let your rabbit explore inside the car for exercise. Small rabbits may be transported with cages that are brought on board of airplanes, but you need to supply it with all the hay and water the rabbit needs. Limiting the rabbits visual range may help alleviate the stress as well. When you arrive at your destination, comfort your rabbit and try to get back to your normal pet care routine as quickly as possible.
