We can only offer boarding to rabbits that are fully vaccinated.
This is because it is in the best interest of your rabbits, the other boarding rabbits and our own rabbits. We will need to see vaccination certificates on admission and will refuse admission without them.
We need to check the certificates every time your bunnies visit please.
The new Nobivac Myxo-RHD vaccine is a combined vaccine that protects against Myxomatosis and VHD (also known as RHD) for a period of one year and will need to be given annually to continue protection. This vaccine is suitable for use in rabbits who have previously been vaccinated with Nobivac Myxo and either the Cylap or Lapinject VHD vaccine. Please note that it is stated that the vaccine may not provide immunity against VHD if the rabbit has previously been vaccinated with a Myxomatosis vaccination other than Nobivac Myxo or naturally contracted myxomatosis previously.
The new vaccination takes a period of three weeks for onset of immunity and therefore I will require a period of at least two clear weeks post vaccine before your rabbit comes to stay.
If for any reason your rabbits still have the separate Myxomatosis and VHD vaccinations please contact me to discuss.
Please note it is a myth that house rabbits do not require vaccination. Myxomatosis is most commonly spread by biting insects and it is impossible to stop these from entering your home. VHD (Viral Hemorrhagic Disease) is easily spread for example by hay that has been in contact with an infected wild rabbit, or perhaps by yourself / other pets who have been out in the woods for a walk and stepped on infected wild rabbit droppings or of course from contact by someone who has an infected rabbit themselves without knowing.
If you are in any doubt about vaccinations please email or telephone me to discuss.
Any current or ongoing health problems must be notified to us at the time of booking.
If your rabbit has an aggressive temperament please do let us know! (we may be able to help or wear protective clothing! Whichever applies!!)
Please bring the rabbit's 'dry' food with you, along with litter trays (if they have them), litter (we won't use sawdust as it has adverse effects on small animal's respiratory systems and vital organs), toys and any blankets / carpet tiles and so on that smell of your rabbits to make them feel at home. The kennels are large enough to accommodate a large amount of 'stuff'.
Our boarding facility is run from our home so please be respectful of our neighbours when parking at the property and do not block anyone's driveway (apart from ours).
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 timings. Obviously sometimes things go wrong and if you are running late for any reason please telephone us to let us know (07854 893146).
We require a non-refundable deposit of £20 to secure your booking. This needs to be paid at the time of booking.
We reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee if you cancel boarding at short notice. If we are able to fill the space this will not be necessary but short notice may result in a loss of earnings for us which is unacceptable.
On rare occasions it may be necessary for us to cancel your booking for reasons beyond our control. Obviously this is not something we wish to do but if we do need to do this we will try and give as much notice as possible. Please note there will be no reimbursement of any kind for monies lost as a result and we are not responsible for alternative boarding provisions.
Any Veterinary fees incurred for your rabbits whilst they are in our care are your (the owner's) responsibility. You will either be required to pay the Vet directly or reimburse The Little Warrens accordingly. Due to the rising costs of fuel we now regrettably need to charge a nominal fee for the petrol used when making journeys to and from the Vets. If you would like details of the current cost per mile please ask.
