Cottages and hutches are thoroughly deep cleaned with long lasting disinfectant before a new guest arrives.
They are disinfected and cleaned daily, hand sanitizer is used at all times when handling different guests.
I am unable to board very young baby rabbits or guinea pigs up to 8 weeks old. It causes them to be very stressed moving them to different enviroment in such a short space of time and can make them very ill. They must at least 10 weeks old for boarding but i do advise it is better to not adopt your new pet until after your holiday, wait until you can give them time to get used to adjusting to their new surroundings.
All pets should be well and in good health before arriving, any pet which shows signs of illness can be refused.
*we regret that unfortunately we are unable to board young unneutered rabbits* due to the following:
Unneutered males and unspayed females spray large amounts of urine to mark territory and all objects in their area.
They frequently do this by leaping into the air and spray the urine over a large area, covering the accommodation and spraying over other rabbits in nearby runs.
We are not liable for any illness, loss, theft, injury or responsibility for administering medication whilst on our premises or from any health problems arise for indoor rabbits being boarded outdoors. We are not liable for any person injuring themselves whilst on our premises. your pet is left entirely at your own risk.
If you pet should unfortunately becomes unwell while you are away, we will ensure to seek medical attention quickly from our local Veterinary clinic. We will contact you to let you know your pet has had treatment and keep you up to date. All costs must be settled before departure if you have not requested medical cover.
