Hello my name is Patricia and I run Little Lodgers with my husband David, we are both animal lovers with 6 rabbits of our own.
Little Lodgers provides boarding for a number of small animals.
Small animal boarding level is kept to a maximum of 10 to allow plenty of time for socialisation with each boarder and for health and safety .
I also provide free collection and drop off within a 5 mile radius.
In addition, I provide home visits and pet taxi service, details can be found at www.littlelodgersboarding.co.uk.
I have over 10 years practical experience in caring for animals including Dogs, Rabbits, Guinea pigs and Hamsters, combined with being City and Guild Qualified in Advance Animal Management and on-going education to a degree level in Animal Management.
My mission is simply to provide animals with a comfortable, safe and stress free environment to enjoy whilst giving animal owners the peace of mind, knowing their companion is in safe hands; allowing people to enjoy a holiday, move home or be away from their animal for whatever the reason may be.
We have a large purpose built summer house in which the small animals are boarded which is locked and secured at night and is fully double glazed and ventilated.
I do not board rabbits and guinea pigs in hutches instead our pens have been custom made to meet the needs of the animals and measure at 6x3x6ft giving rabbits plenty of platforms and room to jump and stretch. In addition they are enriched with toys to give mental stimulation. This is particularly important in adverse weather conditions when it may not be suitable to go out in runs.
In addition toys are rotated so they have different ones daily to avoid boredom.
Rabbits and guinea pigs have large sheltered runs allowing exercise even during showery weather which are enriched with toys.
Even our smaller friends such as hamsters will get access to exercise in a ball!
Hygiene and health are a priority at Little Lodgers. All pens are fully disinfected before arrival and cleaned on a regular basis.
All animals are health checked on arrival in our health check zone which includes full head to toe examination, weighing and temperature check and monitored throughout their stay.
All rabbits must be up to date with vaccinations before boarding.
We are happy to take on animals who maybe on long term medication depending on reason for medication. We will not be able to board any animals who how signs of illness if it may put other boarders at risk.
If vet care is needed during boarding we will try to arrange for your animal to see their own vet. if this is not possible then we will take him/her to our own and customer is liable for costs.
All prices and details can also be found at www.littlelodgersboarding.co.uk and we are happy to accept cash and card payments via paypal.
All prices include luxury boarding, branded hay, fresh daily vegetables, toys, exercise and collection and drop off if within a 5 mile radius (example areas this would include are Romford, Hornchurch, Brentwood).
Prices also include free health check and nail clipping if required plus a free daily log of your animals time at Little Lodgers including pictures.
The only thing we ask is that if your pet normally has dry mix/pellet food that you bring enough for the stay. This is due to the many varieties and the chances of digestive problems if a diet is suddenly changed.
