Hi all. I hope you're doing well. I am an American and have many pets including two guinea pigs that I rescued from my local shelter. I've had them for about a year and had two older piggies before that who have since passed. Even though I am American my husband is a Mexican citizen and we are considering moving "south of the border." I will never move and not take my pets with me as they are part of the family. I was wondering if anyone has moved or travelled with their guinea pigs. Is it stressful? Do you need a lot of paperwork? Is it very difficult to find supplies for guinea pigs in Mexico? We'll be taking their cage with us and a big bag of food. I already read that you can't bring hay or shavings across the border, but I don't think those will be hard to find once we get there. I'm more worried about finding any pellets, especially good quality ones. They currently eat Oxbow. Our plan is to drive across in an rv so that we can have a/c for the animals. Any other advice you can think of is helpful thanks. We won't be moving for at least a year, just trying to get everything settled first.
