I am experienced in all aspects of small animal ownership, care and handling, having owned rabbits for over 30 years, guinea pigs for 20 years, as well as hamsters and fancy rats in the past. I am fully insured, hold an enhanced DBS check and offer a friendly and professional service, giving you peace of mind that your small pets are properly cared for while you relax on holiday.
I also run Powys Small Pet Pampering, which was established in 2020 with many satisfied clients.
I offer boarding for small pets, mostly guinea pigs, but also fully vaccinated rabbits, hamsters, fancy rats, mice, etc.
They are housed in a secure and weatherproof wooden summerhouse in my garden and treated as if they were one of my own animals, with a minimum of twice daily checks, feeding and watering as well as regular cleaning out. The space is unheated so I do not accept skinny pigs at any time, other animals will be considered in the winter months upon discussion.
I provide plastic ferplast type cages for guinea pigs and rabbits in varying sizes, unlimited hay, food and water bowls/bottles and fresh green food twice daily. You can either provide your own bedding and dry food or use mine (dust-extracted wood shavings and Twitch guinea pig nuggets/Gerty guinea pig mix, Burgess Excel rabbit pellets/Fancy Feed Bunny Nuggets). I can also provide dried grass (Readigrass) and dried forage (leaves, flowers and herbs) if your pet likes to eat these foods. If you wish to bring your own cage then this may also be possible, and for hamsters, fancy rats and mice you will need to bring your own cage, bedding and food.
Plastic cages are used as these are easier to disinfect between guests than wooden ones. A veterinary grade disinfectant is used to clean cages, bowls/ bottles as well as the floor in the summerhouse.
Rabbits are only accepted if proof of up to date and correct vaccinations (against myxomatosis, RHD1 and RHD2) can be provided.
My own local veterinary practice is excellent with small animals if your own was not close to me, and I am happy to administer medication to pets requiring this at additional cost after discussion with yourself as to their requirements.
