I need to transport my nervous little bunny to boarding kennels, how can I maintain a calm and happy rabbit?

Transportation is tricky for rabbits…if you can avoid moving them – avoid it!

If you have a few rabbits that have a good relationship, pairing them up in the car for company is a good idea. It is best to familiarise your rabbit with the carrier before the journey by leaving it open in the run. This allows your rabbits to familiarise themselves with the carrier before the journey. If necessary, you can coax your rabbits into the carrier with a small treat – however they should never be pushed in!

If the eating or drinking habits of your rabbits change after their journey, or the number of droppings decreases/stops altogether, you need to contact your vet straight away. This could be a sign that your bun could be ill!
