We will not be held responsible for any illnesses such as (but not limited to) Myxomatosis, Rabbit Haemorrhage Disease, Rabbit Haemorrhage Disease 2, E. Cuniculi, fly strike, mites or any other diseases.

At the time of boarding with us, if your pet is under veterinary care and receiving treatment for non-contagious medical condition/s, we are happy to assist in your pet’s medical program by administering prescribed drugs on your behalf, this may incur an additional fee to be agreed on booking.

We carry out frequent bottom checks and ensure that all rabbits are kept clean however we will not be held liable in the unfortunate event that your rabbit becomes a victim of fly strike.

Although we make every effort to reduce this risk, overweight rabbits and those that suffer from sticky bums are at greater risk so we strongly recommend all rabbits are protected with rear guard,  those that choose not to treat there rabbits must be aware that the risk is higher and in our environment it is impossible for eradicate all flys, untreated rabbits are left at the owners risk and we will not be held to account for fly strike should the owners choose  to not protect there rabbits before there visit.

Should your pet become ill whilst boarding with us, we will seek veterinary advice and keep you informed. Any veterinary fees which we incur on your behalf will be payable by you on your return.

Whilst your pet is in our care it will be fed a variety of fresh food by us and its own regular dried food provided by you.(If Not Burgus excel / Science select ) We will provide top quality farm hay, treats, fruit & Veg where appropriate.

Pets will not mix with other boarders and will be stroked, groomed & checked regularly.:

Rabbits and /or guinea pigs sharing a hutch, which begin displaying signs of aggression and/or sexual harassment toward each other, maybe separated at our discretion for the safety, health and wellbeing of the animals. The owner of any pets, which must be separated, will incur the extra costs of boarding.

Newly bonded pairs must have been together for over 3 months – as some bond are still fragile during this honeymoon period.

Although we take every care to offer a stable environment for bonded  rabbits on the rare occasion the bond can break down (Stress of a new environment) we unfortunately can take no responsibility for the bond failure and the boarding is at the owners risk.
