We like to have lots of fun in the pens peeking through tunnels and hiding in our wooden lodges in the garden, all tunnels and toys included, if you like you can bring their favourite teddy along.
The hutches are thoroughly deep cleaned and disinfected before a new guest arrives.
They are disinfected and cleaned daily, hand sanitizer is used at all times when handling different guests.
At present Guinea Pigs do not require any vaccination.
I do not recommend boarding very young rabbits up to 5 months old.
PRIOR TO BOARDING:
**RABBITS MUST BE VACCINATED 2 WEEKS BEFORE BOARDING ** from VHD and Myxomatosis for the vaccine to be effective and MUST show the required vaccine certificates on arrival or email a copy. unfortunately they will be unable to be boarded without proof of vaccine. This keeps all our guests safe.
RHD2 is a relatively new strain of the rabbit haemorrhagic disease. Transmitted by the environment through wild rabbit, insects and bedding.
It is highly contagious and the 1.3million pet rabbits estimated to be in the UK are at risk
The virus often shows few to no symptoms and kills rabbits quickly and suddenly.
All pets should be well and in good health before arriving, any pet which shows signs of illness can be refused.
*we regret that unfortunately we are unable to board young unneutered rabbits* due to the following:
Unneutered males and unspayed females spray large amounts of urine to mark territory and all objects in their area.
They frequently do this by leaping into the air and spray the urine over a large area, covering the accommodation and spraying over other rabbits in nearby runs.
We are not liable for any illness, loss, theft, injury or responsibility for administering medication whilst on our premises or from any health problems arise for indoor rabbits being boarded outdoors. We are not liable for any person injuring themselves whilst on our premises. your pet is left entirely at your own risk.
If you pet should unfortunately becomes unwell while you are away, we will ensure to seek medical attention quickly from our local Veterinary clinic. We will contact you to let you know your pet has had treatment and keep you up to date with progress
