Do not place the cage in an area that will be exposed to drafts or direct sunlight. Maintain a temperature in the vehicle that won’t be too hot or too cold for your small pets. A good guide is your own comfort zone; if you are hot or cold, chances are your small pet will be too. Feed your small pets according to their usual schedule during the trip.
Reptiles are more closely regulated by government laws than other pets. Prior to planning your move, check with the restrictions of your new home to
determine the state regulations regarding reptiles. For more information, check with the State Regulatory Agency located in your new state.
Small pets such as hamsters, gerbils,
guinea pigs and mice can usually be
transported in their regular cages.
Ensure that the covers are secure for the trip, and that no open containers of water are in the cage that might spill during the travel.
