    For my Flemish Giant. I just got her last Sunday, she is said to be @ 3 months old and about 8lbs. I want to get a safe and sturdy carrier that will be good for now and when she is full grown. I’ve been told that she could get to 20 (!) lbs. Please, and thank you

    I would suggest a large carrier such as a doe carrier that is made of hard plastic.. That way she cant chew it and its more sturdy!

    Depends on how long the bunny will be in it' but with a Flemish it will need to be large. We had a Checkered Giant that was twice the size of our other bunnies--her carrier is huge and that was just for short trips to the vet.

    There's a photo of a carrier in the following article that would be good. It's similar to the one I have (though I think mine is larger). I have used mine for two rabbits, so it would hold a full grown flemish giant. The style in the photo would be good. Just get one large enough.
