How to Arrange Safe Rabbit Transport
Have you guys moved a rabbit across the world before? Is it difficult, or would it be too hard on the pet?
Great question. Yes, we have safely moved rabbits internationally (including Walter, who we recently helped relocate from Hong Kong to Los Angeles). And yes, it is a delicate process that you'll want to consider carefully.
Rabbits are often very sensitive to the stress of travel, so when moving them it's important to keep them well-hydrated before and after and to ensure they have a travel crate that allows plenty of good airflow. They should also only fly with a pet friendly airline and be well taken care of when boarding and leaving the plane.
If you'd like to talk to one of our specialists about what the process entails, please contact us. It's also a good idea to talk to your vet about any concerns you may have, and for reference, here are the pet import requirements for the United States.
Hope this helps a little, Aaron. Let us know if we can be of further assistance, and good luck with everything!
