My guinea pig is seriously ill and will end up being put down shortly. Left it there with another one for 10 days, and got one of them nearly half dead and not much responsive. As much as I cannot say if the issue came from moving places, journey or food provided, I am though really unhappy that i wasn't informed earlier that it stopped eating, that it wasn't taken to vet - or no action was taken, was just left there to die, and during pick up heard lots of lies that it's just quiet one. I would personally avoid this place.

Boarders Response:Firstly I have to say we are sorry for your loss and have since been made aware your piggy has been put to sleep. We take the upmost care with all of our boarders and own pets alike, sadly we was informed before boarding that this particular piggy had been dropped from a sufficient height to have broken its top teeth and was struggling to eat. From the beginning the piggy was very quiet while the other was lively this can be very normal in pairs. We tried various foods whilst they were in our care Incl peppers, carrots, kale etc and in fairness its hard to gage who eats what amount when in a pair but was pre warned of the lack of eating due to teeth. They were brought along in a carrier with no door and one was quiet from the start and was the same for the 10 days, this was not lies. It was not left to die in any way, and as we was pre warned at the start and the condition stayed the same we didn't have any cause to seek the vets opinion.
We always leave our guinea pigs with Darren and Lisa and they always look after them really well. I know they take guinea pigs, rabbits, hens, parrots, tortoises and other small pets.

Our rabbit Lola had a lovely time in Eltham Hen House. The owners love small animals and looked after her very well giving her lots of cuddles! Whilst we were away they sent us photos of her which was a lovely touch. She came back home very happy. Thank you!

We left our two bunnies to spend Christmas and New Year at Eltham hen house. The owners are very accommodating with pick up times. The weather was horrendous but they made sure they were dry and warm. Upon collection the bunnies looked very calm so I think bunnies had a great time!.

I recently had my rabbit stay at Eltham House for ten days. The owners are lovely, the prices are really reasonable and my rabbit returned home well looked after and happy. The drop off and collection service they offer is really useful for busy people too. Will be a returning customer I'm sure!
