    Vacation time, but I have some questions...

    My family and I are going to vacation for a week. (Hour and 45 minute drive) I have recently got my piggy, and I do not trust anyone with him yet. Also, I do not have any pet sitters nearby. So my questions:

    1. What things to I need for my piggy, for the car trip? (carrier, etc, etc) [I am bringing his smaller cage to the vacation car, but I cannot have him in it, during the ride. Since, it is too big)

    2. Can my piggy last the whole ride and the new location for a week?

    3. I have a concern, during the ride, what if my piggy gets thirsty? (the carrier I am about to by, does not have any water thing)

    -Thank you, Ella!

    Re: Vacation time, but I have some questions...

    I am a college student and drive 3 hours to visit home at least once a month. A carrier is fine to keep him in for 1 hour and 45 minutes. I never gave mine water or pellets or hay on the ride, as those can get super messy. Instead, I used lettuce, Bell pepper, and cucumber to keep them full and hydrated. My pigs usually just sleep the whole way there and back.
    He will be fine for a week in the new location. Mine did all the time. They usually acted as if nothing happened after being put back into their cage with familiar fleece and hideys.
