Weston Super Mare
Please mention you found us on: findpetboarding.com
Carots is a small family run boarding facility based in Weston Super Mare, 20 minutes south west from Bristol Airport. Our accommodation has been designed and built by us to provide your pet with space, security and enrichment during their stay. We have designed a unique style of accommodation that enables our guests a freedom of choice thus promoting instinctive behaviour.
We have nine units of various sizes depending on your pets requirements. Five units have individual thermostatically controlled under floor heating. Each unit has a private garden attached that is accessed via a connecting tunnel.
We also have 2 large hutches with detached safe gardens.
Daily exercise is offered as desired by our guests. Each unit has a private garden available for their use from dawn to dusk. Logs, balls and tubes are available for play time along with a shade/viewing box for the more inquisitive guest.
We close the connecting door to the garden at dusk for extra safety. Your pet is not transported to a separate run if boarding in a unit.
We request all our guests are vaccinated against
Myxomatosis, Viral Haemorrhagic Disease 1 and 2 at least two weeks prior to boarding.
If your bunny is already vaccinated the vaccination must remain valid for the entire duration of your bunnies stay at Carots.
If your bunny's vaccination is due during their stay and you haven't had time to attend the vets for their booster it may be possible for us to arrange for this to take place during your bunny's holiday.
We are happy to take your bunny to your vet this would involve a charge of £15 per visit plus the cost of the vaccination.
Area restriction applies.
There are currently no vaccinations needed for guinea pigs.
On arrival a health check will be carried out to assess the general health/condition of your pet.
Please bring proof of vaccinations or an emailed copy in advance.
Turf is replaced between guests.
We have 9 luxury units with attached spacious gardens of different sizes, these have been designed and hand built to a high specification by us.
We have 5 units equipped with underfloor heating, these units can accommodate house Rabbits or Guinea Pigs during the colder months.
If a heated unit is required the underfloor heating is charged at £1 per night.

I am unable to board rabbits in the hutch.
I like guests to board in the same unit, however it may not always be possible to board in a specific unit, where possible a comparative or larger sized unit will be offered.
All our guests are covered under our boarding insurance.
Should your pet become unwell whilst in our care and we need to claim for their veterinary treatment a £45.00 excess will be charged to you. All other veterinary cost will be met by us, however conditions apply.

We feed our pets on a range of Burgess Excel a d Science Selective and supply this food free of charge.
All prices include fresh fruit and vegetables mostly home grown, meadow hay and Burgess Excel.
If your pets enjoy a different diet we kindly ask you to supply enough of your pets usual food to last for the duration of their stay, this is due to the delicate nature of a rabbits digestive system.
