Hello and welcome to Larkfield Small Animal Boarding Centre. Specialising in rabbits and all other, small animals holiday boarding needs.
Over 30 years of pet care experience. BRC Breeder, RWAF member. Qualified pet care therapist and currently taking a Batchelors degree in Advanced Animal behaviour, specialising in lagamorphs (rabbits).
Animals are my passion and love. I currently own a rabbitry of over 50, show standard mini lops, of my own and rescue animals on top. Plus rescue horses too. As you can tell its become a way of life for me.
As of January 2016 I am proud to announce the arrival of two new members of staff, Chelsea who is training to be an RSPCA inspector and her animal mad older sister Joanne. Both committed to helping me, be able to provide the care and attention your pets deserve.
Indoor and outdoor areas. Indoor stone stabling area has various size hutches from 2 foot square to 6 foot by 2 foot. All hutches are handmade, heavy duty and fox proofed. Outside hutch area is behind a 2 mtr fence, some 200 sq foot, again hutches up to 6 foot by 2 foot in our outdoor boarding area. Well sheltered away from the sun and driving rain.
Within the enclosed outdoor and stabling area I have various size exercise pens, from 6 foot x 4 to 9 foot x 6 foot, equipped with various tubes, balls, hide away houses and dig pits. All have sun and rain covers so runs are available as often as possible, even in the unpredicatable British weather.
Surrounded by acres of open land, set in the grounds of the old farmhouse, where there is a 24 hour presence. Also fitted CCTV cameras located in 6 different areas. Running 24 hours a day, giving you that extra piece of mind. All areas are bolted and padlocked on retiring. Rest assured your furry family are in safe hands.
They're fed organic hay, direct from the fields. Fresh veg and fruit, which I like to vary, for its different nutritional benefits, pellets and grass too.
Hutches, bowls and bottles etc are disinfected out, after every guest with Defra recommended products. Hutches are cleaned out, every other day. All bottoms are sprayed on arrival with Anti fly strike spray, to prevent fly strike, as well as daily bum checks, vet checked and approved by local practice. As a qualified holistic pet care therapist, I carry a wide range of medications, from antibiotics to pain relief, parasite control to liquid feeds. If any animal is taken sick while boarding here at Larkfield, it will be brought inside with me, for the duration of its stay, so I can monitor more closely and be able to give meds if needed, day and night. I also have a vet on standby in case of emergencies.
Please Note. A South Gloucestershire Licence does NOT need to be held, to run a small animal boarding centre, as some claim to hold. Only if boarding dogs and cats, is it required.
