      Hey guys, I am moving and will be transporting my rabbit with me in the car. I am going to have a 19” carrier for her, but I want to make sure she has constant supply of water as it will be about a 6 hour drive. If I put a bowl in the crate she will surely knock it over in frustration. I wanted to get one of those water bottles that hangs on a door, but I have never used one. Do you know of any that will hook on to a pet carrier by any chance? Thought someone might have a recommendation. Thank you so much!

      Well, your rabbit probably won’t want to drink while the car is moving (unless she is okay with car rides), so instead of having a constant supply you can stop to offer water (maybe take a water bottle and pour water into a bowl). If you can’t do that, then you could use a water bottle. It depends on your carrier though. If it has one of those metal wire doors, then any water bottle would work. If not, then you could try buying a Lixit water bottle, since they have a wire that you might be able to bend to fit better. But if you use the wire that comes with the same size, it probably won’t be able to fit the carrier. Then you could buy a smaller Lixit water bottle and a large one, and then take the wire from the big one and use it for the small one. That way, you’ll have more room to bend it and make it fit, although buying two isn’t ideal.

      Hope this helps!

      I found a couple older threads with some good tips on moving with bunnies:

      Whenever I need my rabbit to ingest water on longer car rides, I serve VERY wet veggies. I’ve never done 6 hours so I’m not sure if it would be enough but just a thought!
