So we head out in 5 weeks. I plan on putting the slithers in Rubbermaid bins for the trip. I was planning on using heat packs to keep them warm, but when I was chatting with the vet she mentioned that they might actually be less stressed if we don't use heat packs and just let them get chilly so they slow down. I mean it's summer so it's not like the car will be that cold, but it won't be the 80-95 they are used to/need. What do you guys think? Heat or no heat? Also, I am wondering about water. We will of course be packing them somewhere in the car with us, in a spot that is as stable and secure as possible, but we will be driving through mountains on no always the best roads. It will be uphill downhill, so a full water dish isn't an option unless we want them swimming the whole time. I'm not sure what the best solution to this is. Should we give them deep water dishes with a small amount of water in them that is less likely to spill? (We can Velcro the dishes so they won't slide too much). Should we not give them any water dish, but put a bowl in for short periods when we stop at rest stops? Or should we just let them be dry for the few days it takes us to make the trip? The latter makes me uncomfortable, but if they are cold and sleeping then maybe it would be okay? I'm leaning heavily towards deep dishes with shallow water that are velcroed down. I thought maybe someone here could weigh in or might have a better idea though. Any other advice, tips, thoughts, etc are welcome and appreciated!
