I used to take one of mine out in the car when i was the passenger, the bumpy uk roads worked wonders for bloat. And my pig used to sit on my knee and look around, i did hold him and the windows were closed
One of the members on here (can't remember who now) borrowed my piggie travel basket to go all the way to Northampton to see Guinea Pig God Simon Maddox from Southampton to Northampton and back on one day (a round trip of 4 hours) and her piggies were fine.
I took my 2 pigs on holiday with me to Cornwall on the train.The whole journey was between 9 and 10 hours including bus journeys and they were fine.I had hay in their carrier and cucumber for hydration.Thank you. I’m defrocked travelling for Xmas to be with family up North. I’m not sure yet on wether to drive or go via train. Either way I’m taking my babies with me and just want them to be comfortable. Thank you Sophie.
We’ve been out in the car to the vets every now and then but never a long ride on train or car. Should be an experience.I always wondered if I should give mine a joy-ride in my car. This will be for a fun activity around the block and back, not a visit to anywhere. I always wanted to do it but I didn't want to stress them out either.
I might try to go on a short joy-ride with them in my car.
That’s great thank youI would travel by car if you can, at the moment, there are many disruptions with the rail network, either way they will be fine. I use hospital cage and cover with a sheet. I have a canvas fold up playpen 5ft dia to house them in, which is so easy to put up and down. Just put newspaper or puppy pads underneath and large fleece on top. You can get a couple of small boxes from supermarket once you are there for hideys if need be x
