About Our Rabbit Boarding
Our boarding is set in ½ acre of landscape gardens and fully enclosed and secure by high fencing.
We have 7 spacious all weather pens complete with hutches which rabbits can free run all day and they are completely fox proof. These pens can be heated if required (house rabbits). All rabbits in these pens will have daily exercise from 7am til late.
We also have large individual hutches with separate runs which rabbits can be put out daily (weather permitting).
All rabbits are checked hourly and we give them lots of time and attention.
Rabbits are fed twice daily (including plenty of hay). We supply bedding such as dust free shavings, good quality barley straw, and meadow hay.
We supply the main feed brands such as Excel, Russell Rabbit, Selective, Wagg and Pets at home feeds twice a day (any other brands not mentioned we ask customers to supply).
Also a variety of fresh vegetables are given daily.
We supply litter trays, toys and tunnels but if customers want to bring any of their rabbits favourite toys from home please feel free.
PLEASE BE ON TIME
Being prompt for drop off and pick up times is much appreciated. We are busy people and our free time is very precious so it is very much appreciated that you stick to agreed times. Obviously sometimes things go wrong and if you are running late for any reason please telephone me to let me know on 07500 961380
Although we do not ask for a deposit, during peak times, a small deposit may be required but if cancellation is necessary 48 hours notice will be needed.
Sometimes during peak times when we are busy, so we do not disappoint if pens are not available, my daughter Emma can offer boarding at her home which has a similar set up but on a smaller scale. Emma is very knowledgable and experienced and helps out on a regular basis (Emma can also cater for the large breeds such as French Lops and Continental Giants).
RABBITS NAILS CAN BE TRIMMED FOR A SMALL FEE, DURING THEIR STAY.
ALL RABBITS MUST BE VACCINATED FOR MYXI AND VHD
Although separate vaccines against myxomatosis and RHD were needed in the past, there is now a single combined vaccine offering protection against both diseases.
The single vaccines cannot be given at exactly the same time and myxomatosis boosters are needed every six months to ensure full protection.
The single myxomatosis vaccine can be given from 6 weeks old, with the single RHD vaccine being given at 8 weeks (as an interval of two weeks between the separate vaccines is needed).
The combined vaccine offers annual protection against both diseases and rabbits can be vaccinated from 5 weeks old.
Speak to your vet for advice about the most suitable vaccination course for your individual rabbits. Your vet can also advise you about the most appropriate age to vaccinate your rabbits.
OWING TO THE NATURE OF SMALL ANIMAL WELFARE WE CANNOT ACCEPT LIABILITY FOR YOUR RABBIT'S HEALTH.
ALTHOUGH WE OFFER ADVICE, VETERINARY ADVICE SHOULD WILL BE SOUGHT BY OUR LOCAL VET AND IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL.
IF PROBLEMS SHOULD OCCUR OR YOUR RABBIT BECOMES ILL THE OWNER IS LIABLE FOR ALL VETERINARY BILLS AND THE COSTS
REIMBURSED BY THE OWNER.
We are able to advise you on all aspects of caring for your rabbit. We have been caring and breeding dwarf lops for many years and have experience and knowledge to pass on to you.
