Birds and small pets, such as gerbils and hamsters, can generally travel in the cage they use at home.

Travel tends to have an adverse effect on birds. They are very susceptible to drafts and sudden changes in temperature, as well as being easily frightened. To keep the bird calm, its cage should be covered while on the road.

Remove the water container from the cage to avoid spills. Place the cage in the car out of drafts but with plenty of ventilation, and be sure it will not tip over.

Give the pet fresh water at every stop small pets become dehydrated very quickly, particularly during hot weather. Feed at usual time.
