About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsBirdsHamsters, Mice etc.

I have many years experience of looking after a variety of small pets and will look after your precious pet as if they are my own. In placing the care of your pet with us whilst you are away, you will be able to have complete piece of mind with respect to their care and safety.

Accommodation:

There are nine hutches with runs all off different sizes (some larger ones more suitable for rabbits and others on one level more suitable for guinea pigs). When the weather turns colder some hutches will be moved into a garage. We also have large indoor cages which can be within the home - whichever is more suitable for your pet. The hutches are in a secure, quiet garden.

Exercise:

All hutches have runs (some are covered) and pets will have access to the runs during the day and be secured in the sleeping area at night. Pets are handled/checked every day to check they are in full health.

Health & Hygiene:

Rabbits will need to have proof of VHD and myxomatosis. Accommodation will be cleaned daily and disinfected between guests. Before pets are left, their food preferences/dislikes will be discussed. If your pet is taking medication, this can be given during their stay and if pets are suddenly ill, they will be taken to a nearby vet (Tower Group) and the bill will need to be paid on your return).

Everytime we leave our rats with Sue they come back happy and well rested. They are having a holiday when she takes care of them, she always provides them with free range time and all the snacks they can dream of. She has other pets of her own but anytime I go there I see that the small furries are in cages in one room, where the bigger guys (like her dog) are not really allowed. She promptly responds to any emails giving updates when we are away, and we are always sure our babies have all the care they need! Would highly recommend.

Sue is the ideal person to care for small pets on holiday. She goes the extra mile to ensure they are happy and contented. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for small pet boarding.

5 From Pauline Hukin on

Sue is a fabulous pet sitter - I’m sure my rats are having as much of a holiday as me when I leave them with her! She houses them in a positively palatial rat abode, gets them out for playtime every night and treats them to a wide variety of edible delights. She is also endlessly accommodating and genuinely concerned for their welfare - when one of my rats needed regular medication Sue was completely happy to administer it, and I know she wouldn’t have hesitated to seek professional vet help on my behalf if there’d been any further problems.

Sue has looked after our two guinea pigs Winnie and Ivy many times and I cannot imagine leaving them to anybody else now. She is a real find: caring, patient, a true animal lover and extremely knowledgeable about how to look after small pets. She has plenty of hutches and lots of space and our piggies are always relaxed after we pick them up. Sue also gives them a trim, wich is great as I am too nervous to do it in case I snip them.

Two very very happy bunnies after their holiday with Sue, proper home from home.. thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of them both. They will be back for their October holiday x

We regularly bring our hamster to Sue for a holiday while we go away and she is very gentle and kind and Hector seems to come back with a spring in his step! Fortunately we were delighted to find that Sue also could look after our hens. We couldn’t think of anyone better to entrust our pets.

5 From Richard Firm on

My hamster was very well looked after by Precious Pets. She seems very happy and healthy and I would recommend this service to anyone with a small pet! I'm refreshingly pleased by the care my hamster received and she has clearly been not just looked after but loved and cared for during her stay.

5 From Charlie on

Sue looked after our 2 guinea pigs for 2 weeks and we were so pleased with the care and service she offered. She has a great selection of cages available, gave our guineas regular attention and they were very well looked after. I would highly recommend Sue and we will certainly book with her again.

5 From Angela Nicholson on

Sue provided a wonderful environment for my two bunnies for three weeks this summer. She was able to accommodate them at very short notice and they had a large hutch and outdoor run to themselves with fresh greens, fruit & veg every day. She has a variety of other hutches available with lots of boredom buster toys. All the animals get lots of attention and my bunnies came home very happy and content! I can strongly recommend Home Care for Precious Pets. Wonderful pet care and peace of mind while you're away at a very reasonable rate.
