    Default Carrier for 4 bunnies?

    Is there a carrier that would be suitable for 4 rabbits? Iím not sure I would even be able to carry 4 rabbits together mind you! Do those of you with quads put them all in 1 carrier for vet visits etc or do you split them into 2 carriers?

    When I had four, I once put them all together in a large carrier They were squashed, but I reasoned that they slept in a similar way However, I really found it very heavy and so after that I put them in two.

    My 3 buns used to travel in a small dog crate and on arrival at vets I just brought each one in in a carrier. If your buns r smallish the Catit carrier is brill and could hold 2 buns at a time.

    When I had a quad of rabbits I used ferplast atlas mini, it is a great carrier that has doors on the front. I used to use it open in their shed all the time and then at vets time they didn't mind going in it.

    2 rabbits are fairly heavy in a carrier - and you need to be able to separate them at the vet without too much stress. A carrier big enough for 4 may not fit in a car easily, either. I take mine in singly or as pairs in standard cat carriers. I do have a small dog wire 2' crate that we used to get 4 cats to the vet, but it was a nightmare to get through doors and needed 2 people to carry it. I also have a small dog carrier with wheels and a pull along handle. I don't think it would go in the car (it would sit on a the back seat but not go through the door), but would fit 4 bunnies in comfort and would be good for transporting by bus or a short walk. Again, it wouldn't be easy at the vet trying to get the rabbits out individually. If you have some help, using a smaller, top opening carrier for each rabbit may be less stressful, and they will unclip and stack neatly when not needed. Bigger carriers still take up a lot of space when not in use. If you only need to transport one rabbit, the smaller carriers are more useful generally.

    Examples:

    With wheels (available separately) - may fit 4 rabbits:

    When I had a quad, I used a small dog crate for vet visits. I still use said small crate for my trios now.

    I have the catit cabrio just now for 3 but I wouldn’t fit a fourth bunny in there too. I have seen a ferplast atlas 40 (without wheels I think) on gumtree available fairly locally so was considering that one but hadn’t considered whether it will fit in the car! Small dog crate might be an option, presumably you drape a blanket or something over it so the rabbits have cover especially in the vets waiting room?

    Yes, I was just about to add that we bring a fleece for the waiting room as it just crossed my mind. One thing I love about my vets is that they actually have some fleeces available in the waiting room for timid cats/smaller critters who need their carrier covering - should I forget to bring my own.

    At the vets for weighing flighty animals they have an ancient wire mesh crate thing with a handle on top: I suspect one twice the size would fit a quad. That's still, what, maybe 8kg of bunnies?! Before you even consider the carrier weight.
    The geeky one...



    Often available for bunny runs: PM for details.

    I have the nobby avior pet carrier from zooplus. It could probably fit 4 in as they all like to cram together but I use two carriers so as to balance out the weight of the rabbits.
