Bobtails is a small boarding business run by myself, with support from my husband. Having kept many pets of our own over the years, rescued and nursed many rabbits and guineas. I have developed a wealth of knowledge. Here at Bobtails animals come first. We understand how precious your pets are to you and go to every length to ensure they remain happy and relaxed in our care. We are a small boarding facility and intend to keep it that way. This means that we can give your pets more personal care enabling us to keep a very close eye on there health and well being and notice any changes immediately.
Rabbits and guineas are kept inside two summerhouses with built in cages. they can be doubled in size by removal of a partition panel. They are 3ft or 6ft by 2ft deep. There are double storey cages of 4ft and 5ft, these can be booked as a single or double storey. We can also provide a double cage with a mesh partition for those who may not yet live together but need to see each other.
There are fans to keep them cool on hot summer days, and a heater when necessary.
They have a night light and are securely locked at night. There is a webcam so that I can observe them on my phone at any time, but they are just in the garden and I am never far away.
We have runs on the grass for guineas with shade and shelter.
Rabbits have large gravelled areas to exercise with lots of tunnels, logs and dig boxes. We find this a more hygienic method as the area can be hosed down regularly and they are not grazing where others have urinated. There is always access to shelter and shade. There is also a large play pen raised off the ground for exercise and recreation, again sheltered and shaded.
Your pets are never mixed with other peoples pets.
If you wish we can give you an update on your pet by text and send a picture via whatsapp.
We provide lovely fresh hay daily, as much as your pet needs. We also provide special hays as a treat. Breakfast is served daily and consists of a variety of good quality fresh veg, fruit and herbs.
If your pet requires any special dietary needs this can be catered for by prior arrangement.
We ask that you bring your pets own pelleted food, enough for there stay, as it is impossible to stock all varieties.
All rabbits are required to be fully vaccinated (RHD1 and 2 and myxomatosis) this should be done at least two weeks prior to arrival. Please bring their vaccination card with them or send me a photo.
We ask you to check that your pet is in good health
with no skin problems and that they are eating well. please check that your rabbit has a clean bottom. If your rabbit has a problem in this area and needs regular attention you must inform us as there may be an extra charge.
If your pet requires any special attention or medication we are happy to accommodate by prior arrangement, there may be an extra charge.
We will clip claws free of charge while your pet is boarding if required.
Your pets are cleaned daily without fail, as hygiene is of the utmost importance here at Bobtails. It is a good way of noting your pets toilet habits and if there are any changes.
We will require your vets details, but may use our own in emergency if nearer. We will always keep you informed if we have any problems so that we can discuss any action that needs to be taken. We expect to be reimbursed by you for any vet fees incurred by us. It is a good idea to inform your vet of where your pet is staying particularly if it is a long stay.
We strongly recommend that you get your pet insured.
