|Small Animal Boarding|
Indoor pets are kept in our own home and live with us as part of our family for the length of their stay. Our regular indoor pet guests include rabbits, guinea pigs, parrots and parakeets, hamsters and exotic pets. At your request we will allow your pets to have the run of the large conservatory room for a period of time each day or remain in their cages, its up to you; obviously we take great care to ensure all rooms are secure before allowing any pet out.
All guests are fed a suitable species specific basic dry feed each day, once or twice at your request and fresh fruit and vegetables are also offered on a daily basis. You are of course free to bring your pets usual food if you wish, a lot of people like to do this.
We are regularly asked to have exotic animals in our care which we are very pleased to accomodate, we can provide a 3 foot vivarium with suitable substrate and accessories although we do ask for heatlamps, UV lamps and any initial live food to be provided. We have boarded snakes, spiders, tortoises, bearded dragons, even stick insects and snails and are knowledgeable in their care.
We specialise in parrot boarding and regularly cater for African greys, cockatiels, cockatoos, parakeets, caiques, amazons, love birds, conures and finches. We have cages suitable for budgies and smaller and one larger parrot cage. Most people tend to bring their own cages if they are able to too as most birds settle easier in their own cage.
'Outdoor' pets are treated to roomy 3, 4 or 5ft hutches within our large, brand new (built June 2018) purpose built ‘animal house’ which also contains 4ft runs on artificial grass for when the weather doesn’t allow for outside time. When it is nice the runs are just transferred outside. It also faces north keeping it as cool as possible plus has windows, blinds and a fan to keep it cooler in very hot periods. It is fully double glazed and insulated which keeps is cosy in the winter too.
Guests are visited at least four to five times a day, are cleaned each day and fed according to your instructions. We use dust free shavings or shredded paper and provide unlimited fresh meadow hay or 'ready grass'. All guests are fed a suitable species specific premium dry feed each day plus fresh fruit and vegetables are also offered on a daily basis. You are of course free to bring yout pets usual food if you wish. We also offer a nail clipping service and bathing/ trimming service for your small animals whilst they are in our care.
Please note all rabbits will need to be vaccinated against Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease. New clients will be asked to provide Veterinary Certificates and we regret without this we can not provide boarding for your rabbit.
