Particularly important issues for travel arrangements involving rodents and other small animals are:
- Information about theanimal’s current state of health– you should make detailed information available to Grady Petshipping’s transport specialists in good time
- The selection of asuitable and sufficiently spacious transport boxfor hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits etc. Differences between breeds are very important, and must be taken into account when making a selection. The transport box must be escape-proof and manufactured or modified in accordance with the latest IATA guidelines
For small animals and rodents in transit:
