Ferrets are great pets and make great travel companions. There are a few things to keep in mind to make sure your trips are going well. Traveling with a ferret is not the best idea for everyone, so let's look at what it takes to travel with a pet.
You may or may not know that ferrets are not legal in all areas. Some states and cities have passed laws that make ferrets illegal. This also makes it illegal to travel alone. Some cities have laws against ferrets, even though they are located in a state that allows them, if you are not sure, it is best to know for sure before you go. If you find that you have a ferret in the place where they are illegal, you may be able to take them from you. You may also be fined. Either of these would definitely put a damper on your trip.
You will probably be traveling by car or flight if you plan to have your furry friend with you. Buses and trains have a policy of limiting pets. Many airlines did not give you permission to take a ferry with you in the plane's taxi. This can be a problem because the cargo space is not temperature controlled. Your best bet if you go by air is to find an airline that can handle your ferrets. This allows you to control his or her situation. By far, the best option is to travel by ferry by car.
A tour will be required. Even if you do not intend to use it extensively, there will be times when a cage keeps your pet safe. You will not be aware of all the potential dangers in places you go. A motel, rest stop and tourist center are places where ferret cages may be needed. Flow and bridges are other important equipment for those places. When choosing a ferret cage, make sure you get a cage large enough for the ferret to stretch and sleep. Having space for food and water, as well as a toilet area is a good idea. Make sure the cage has a secure clip to prevent escape and that you may need a lockable cage to prevent others from opening it. Remember to bring bedding with your cage.
