I’ve heard about a case this week where someone was travelling in their car with their rabbit in a pet carrier that wasn’t lined.
When the rabbit reached its destination there was something wrong with its legs and upon being vet checked the results were frightening.
As the rabbit was travelling in a bare carrier in a moving car it had nothing to grip onto as the car went round bends. The rabbit had tried to keep from falling and it resulted in ‘splayed legs’ and the poor bunny was put to sleep.
The owner was devastated to hear that a simple lining of newspaper or an old towel could have prevented this.
 (before putting hay in as hay alone won’t work.)
Not only does lining your pet carrier help your rabbit have something to grip on, the lining also soaks up accidental messes, which most rabbits do whilst travelling. The base of carriers is a very smooth plastic and an unnatural surface for a rabbit.
So please line your pets carriers, with newspaper, an old towel or vetbed just like these two have been!
