So I live in Indiana and my boyfriend lives outside Toronto. This summer after I graduate I am going to spend the summer up there and will possibly be moving there permanantly at the end of the summer. I read up on what it takes to transport a bunny but I just wanted to get some advice from anyone who has taken a bunny from the US to Canada before. I read that they don't require any vaccinations but do I need to have any paper work from my vet stating that she is healthy? I have the phone number for customs concerning pets and I need to give them a call. Is it ok to take her hay and food over the border with me?

I've never travelled over the border with pets, so I can't help you there. But I'm Canadian and we don't have any rabbit vaccines, you probably will need a health certificate from your vet though. Canadians need them to go into the US, I work at a vet clinic so I give them out all the time. I would definitely talk to customs first about any paperwork/the food first because even if your vet does happen to know protocol, it changes all the time. I wouldn't think it would be a problem bringing hay/food over the border (but still check). I order hay/treats from the states without issue. If you can't though, you can find pretty much every kind of pellet/hay in Canada that you can in the US. APD is the only major one I haven't seen here.

 I haven't had to do this before, but I did find this video about bringing pets into Canada and what is required.  (at 1:27 they address rabbits). 

I don't know how old this is though, so not sure if this is up to date or not.

And this seems to be more of the official guide
