Rabbit Travel to the United States From Canada

Hi PetRelocation,

Please tell me the requirements for moving a rabbit from Canada to Salt Lake City, Utah by air.




Hi Nicole,

Thank you for your question! Per the USDA, there are no particular health import requirements when it comes to bringing rabbits and many other animals into the United States.

Rabbits can be sensitive travelers however, so we do recommend consulting with your vet as you start to plan the trip. It's also very important to check with the airline you're considering to find out what their rules are for rabbit travel. They may require a health certificate from your vet stating the rabbit is healthy and fit to fly, and they will also have specific standards regarding the rabbit travel crate. Here's a little more information about rabbit travel if you'd like to dive deeper.

Additionally, please read over these basic pet travel tips for more guidance, and if you think you'd like to hire some assistance with your move, you're welcome to fill out our online pet travel consultation form.

We hope this helps to get you started, Nicole. Good luck with your rabbit travels!
