Please mention you found us on: findpetboarding.com
I provide professional, loving care for your small pets when you go on holiday, into hospital etc.
Long term, short term, short notice ... just ask.
I am fully insured and have an enhanced disclosure.
I am an ex-volunteer for my local animal welfare organisation where I helped care for small animals and walked dogs.
I volunteered two days a week for one year.
I am registered with Vets4Pets in Hamilton and Clyde Vets in Wishaw. They are very experienced and knowledgeable with all small furries.
Because your pets mean so much to you, and some of you are anxious about leaving them, I provide regular updates via Facebook.
I will post photographs of them, which is very reassuring and hopefully keeps any worries away. Photos posted with your permission.
This is not a huge profit making business, I do it because I love it. Most of my profit goes towards toys, food, cages, runs and maintaining my existing pet accommodation.
Rabbits will board in large, spacious appropriate cages, which are located within a purpose built, fully insulated, timber shed, where they will feel safe and warm.
Guinea pigs will board indoors, unless owners would prefer the pet shed.
All cages and runs are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected regularly during your pet's holiday.
Snugglesafe microwave heatpads will be provided for the colder weather.
PLEASE NOTE ... I never mix different owner's pets with each other. The only pets that share a cage/run are from the same owner and are already bonded.
Hamsters, gerbils etc will board indoors and will have to provide their own accommodation.
Please bring your pet to me in a suitable pet carrier.
If I need to take them to the vet, then I will need this to transport them.
Rabbits will have access to outdoor runs during the day.
Guinea pigs will have access to indoor runs during the day.
My garden is fully enclosed.
Your pet's normal routine will be discussed and adhered to as much as possible.
Feeding to your pet's usual routine.
Fresh fruit and vegetables, upon discussion.
Use of play pens indoor and outdoor.
Attention and handling daily.
I have several requirements in terms of health to protect other animals and your own animals.
ALL RABBITS MUST BE VACCINATED AGAINST VHD AND MYXOMATOSIS AND RHD 2.
PLEASE BRING VACCINATION CARD WITH YOU WHEN YOU BOOK YOUR RABBIT IN
If any animal shows signs of illness I reserve the right to not accept your pet for boarding.
Any medical conditions must be discussed with me, prior to boarding.
Animals will be health checked daily.
I am comfortable with administering medication.
*** IMPORTANT ***
Please do NOT bring pets to me with dirty, matted bottoms.
I will certainly keep an eye on such things during their holiday, and I will happily clean them up and keep them fresh, but please make sure that they are clean and hygienic prior to boarding, thanks.
Guinea pigs and rabbits ...
£7.00 per day
£9.00 per day for two pets who share a cage
Hamsters, gerbils etc ...
£3.00 per day (per cage)
A non-refundable deposit is required at time of booking, this will reserve your space and also covers for admin and any products used.
Non-refundable deposits will only be refunded if I cancel your booking.
Balance is required on arrival day.
One, two and three day stays.
I am more than happy to board your pets for one, two, or three days.
However, because of the work involved preparing accommodation, providing bedding, hay etc and then deep cleaning when they check out, I have a minimum of a four day policy so you will be charged for four days.
During June and July I have a minimum seven day policy so even if your pet is here for a few days, you will be charged for seven.
These are my busiest months and I can't afford to turn away a potential booking for a fortnight for example, because a pet is using the accommodation for a few days only.
Please visit my facebook page or call me for more information.
Please pay by cash or PayPal or Bank Transfer
*** Please let me know asap if your plans change and you don't require my services ***
