Rabbit and Guinea Pig Boarding
During their stay they will be handled, given cuddles and plenty of fuss with daily exercise outside of their hutch. Dirty bedding will be changed daily and be given plenty of straw and hay to munch on throughout the day. Daily exercise will be either in the outdoor run (weather permitting) or in the indoor run. The outdoor run is on a slabbed paved area, as many diseases are passed on by urine and faeces which can remain in the soil and grass for many months. Grass cannot be cleaned and disinfected but a slabbed area can.
All pets are kept separate from one another while they are out of their hutch. We use megazorb in our litter trays, as sawdust and wood shavings can irritate your pet eye’s which can lead to eye problems and respiratory problems by inhaling the dust. All boarders will receive a small portion of evening treats consisting of a combination of various vegetables, herb and fruit.
All you need to bring is your rabbit and guinea pig dry pellet food, along with their favourite things, blankets, teddy bear, tunnels, chews, treats and anything else, so they feel more at home. Some owner's bring an item of clothing that they have worn so it’s like a comfort blanket for your pet and can smell their owners on the clothing.
We provide stools, stacking cups and a plastic ball for any of our boarders if you don’t want to bring you own toys and we provide litter trays, bowls and water bottles if needed.
If you do bring your own things then please label these up where possible.
Gerbils, Hamsters and Mice Boarding
During their stay they will be handled (only if they are used to being handled), soiled areas cleaned when needed and if you pet is staying 7 days or more then we ask that you bring a change of bedding so all their bedding can be changed.
You will need to bring their own cage as this makes them feel safe and more secure, as they are only small and can be frightened easily.
All you need to bring is your gerbil, hamster or mice dry pellet food and change of bedding if needed.
