Can I take my dwarf rabbits with me to Montana?
Thanks for the question! According to the USDA website, the United States does not have any particular health requirements for pet rabbits entering the country. An import permit is only required if the animals have been "inoculated with any pathogens for scientific purposes."
You will want to contact the airline you're planning to use to find out if they have any particular requirements for you to follow, however, and you'll also need to make sure you have secure travel crates for your rabbits.
We have moved rabbits in the past and, in order to promote their comfort and safety as much as possible, paid close attention to proper hydration (among other things). Please talk to your vet for more information about best travel practices to keep in mind.
Please contact us if you think you'd like some help with your move. Thanks again, and good luck.
