Little Paws Lodge is a friendly, caring & professional family run business that offers home from home accommodation for small animals. (no dogs or cats accepted)
All pets staying at Little Paws Lodge are cared for as if they were our own. They will be fed, watered, kept safe & warm, cuddled & have play time everyday.
For peace of mind, we are fully insured & we can offer additional insurance for your pets whilst they are staying at Little Paws Lodge, so you will not return to a vet's bill in the unlikely event that something should happen (Please note that pre existing conditions are not covered).
Little Paws Lodge has recently moved to exciting new premises in Southend-on-Sea, Essex (with excellent transport links & close to both the A13 & the A127). We can provide a collection/delivery service upon request and collection/delivery can be arranged from Chelmsford- please request at the time of booking.
All pets staying at Little Paws Lodge stay in our family home, so all animals stay in a warm, draft free environment where temperature can easily be adjusted.
We ask that you bring your pet's cage with you to enhance their home from home experience.
Cages are lined with wood shavings or chipsi (whichever is your preference) & plenty of fresh meadow hay or shredded paper. Cages are cleaned & freshened on a daily basis so your pet will always be dry, clean & comfortable
NOW AVAILABLE.....Little Paws Lodge can now accommodate outdoor bunnies & guinea pigs. We have 5 purpose built hutches which are housed in an outbuilding in our garden. Pictures of our outdoor boarding accommodation will follow....
All animals will be taken out of their cages on a daily basis for exercise, whether it be to run around in an exercise ball, or run around in our indoor pen.
On warm, sunny days, birds will be placed outside.
We do have a selection of harnesses for rabbits & birds so if your pet requires walking, then this can be arranged.
When pets are out of their cages, they have our full undivided attention. Cuddles are also plentiful during exercise time.
The health and welfare of all pets is paramount to us. Each guest will be given a daily health check which doubles up as a cuddle session!
Rabbits must have up to date vaccinations against Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD) - at least two weeks prior to arrival. These vaccinations have to be given at least two weeks apart. We require you bring your pet's certificate as proof of vaccination- if you do not provide us with these certificates, we will not be able to board your bunny.
Should your pet require any medication, we are able to administer this, however we request that you notify us of this at the time of booking.
Cages are cleaned & freshened every day.
Fresh water, fruit & vegetables & treats (sparingly) are given daily. We ask that you bring your pet's own dried food as small animals have delicate tummies.
