    Question Question about guinea pigs in Israel...

    I am moving to Israel soon (which counts as in Asia so don't say this is the wrong forum to post in) and I could never even think to leave my poor piggy behind. Could I transport it from NJ to Israel and are guinea pigs allowed there?

    Re: Question about guinea pigs in Israel...

    With regards to the getting your guinea pig in to Israel, I found this page http://www.hagshama.org.il/en/resources/view.asp?id=422 - hope it gives you somewhere to start if no one knows the answer. It does say things change quite frequently, so contacting the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development there for up to date guidelines would probably be a good idea.

    How long is the flight? Here's an article on flying with pets http://www.hsus.org/pets/pet_care/ca...ir_travel.html. The travelling experience of my pigs goes to a three hour car journey, so I can't offer any personal experience.

    I've heard bad things about pets traveling in airplanes.... they must travel with the baggage and pets have dies there due to extreme heat or cold. Be sure to check with you're airlines on their pet traveling policy.
