What do you put in

Post by woodwench on Sat Nov 21, 2015 10:11 pm

your buns travel box?
Having had Henners at the vets again this week I once more came up against the thing of what to put in the box for the buns comfort.
Whatever I put in Henry digs it all up to begorrah. I've used vet fleece, towels, cushion pad, bath side mats.... always the same: within seconds he's got it in a darned great heap and defeated the objective.
Is there anything that will fit snugly and not slip and defeat a rabbits digging? I hate to think of him being in that box, bound for that dread place and sitting on cold, slippy plastic... even though he doesn't have to do so if he'd just not DIG.

I use fleece blankets, MJ is the same though with digging.

These might solve the problem, not as easy to dig up

I use a blanket or vet bed, with a rolled up one around the sides for support/to lean in to. I also spray with pet remedy and put in either a hay ball, or toilet roll tube. I will occasionally put a few nuggies in, but very rarely as theyve never bothered about eating them whilst travelling to the vets. Longer journeys, i put greens and pellets in, and stop for regular water. Not that they ever drink, but i like to give them the opportunity every 45 minutes or so.

could you try an old carpet tile or bit of carpet cut to size?
Not very soft or fluffy, but should be 'dig proof' at least for a while,and better than hard floor. i suppose it does depend how persistent he is as to how long it would last, but carpet tiles tend to have hard backs which would stop it being piled up, and maybe you could wrap a soft cover round it for a bit of added comfort and see how long it takes for him to pile that up Smile

Soundwave gets his blanket and his pink bunny he digs but he gets himself comfortable once he sorted where bunny has to be.
Miranda has her fleece and she also digs.

I put herbs in for him and he has his floppy bunny (but don't spread that round, it's not good for his image) and it's only a ten minute drive to the vets but he still goes daft.
I love the look of those bun-velopes but I'm not certain they would fit in my carrier. It's one of the old style jobs...

We have never travelled very far with our buns and piggies as the vet is only five minutes away but I use fleeces too.

Just a blanket! It gets a good duffing up every time.

I don't put treats. I'm too paranoid they choke in the car! Embarassed

It depends. Vernon will just dig. Doesn't matter what . D'Layla has a soft towel her carrier is also her bed attached to the run via ruanround tubing when not traveling. And she loves to stretch out. Just a delightful girl. Good manners.
