Rabbit Guests

 

I will only be accepting a very small number of rabbits for boarding, the Department Of Primary Industries will be releasing the Calici virus State wide March (2012) and releasing a new strain in 2013-2014. There is NO vaccine available to cover this strain.

Rabbits need to have the vaccine as once exposed to the Calici virus it is 100% fatal to those who are not vaccinated.

 

The vaccine is not a 100% guarantee that your rabbit will survive if exposed to the virus but it is the best we can do with the limited support the government offers us.

 

Myxo is also rampant around much of the state and there is no vaccine for Myxo available in Australia.

 

Rabbits must come with proof of their vaccination and flea treatment, this needs to be done 1 month prior to boarding by a certified vet.

 I can take no responsibility for your rabbit coming into contact with Myxo or Calici Virus.

My Experience

 

 I have owned Guinea Pigs and Rabbits for over 20 years and am very passionate about their care and well being, I have always wanted to offer a safe place for small animals to stay while their owners are away,Guinea Pigs and rabbits need more care than just a neighbour popping over once a day to quickly feed and water them ( Providing they don't forget!)

 

 My husband and I have had built a huge colour bond lockable shed, with glass sliding doors, opening windows, skylights and fly screens especially for our own guinea pigs, small rabbits and borders.

 

I Breed and show my rabbits and guinea pigs and have been a registered breeder of both for many years.

 

I have been an active member  of the Hobart Cavy Club for 8 years  and am also a current member of the Northern Tasmanian Cavy Club ,  I show my Cavy each month with great success, with many Best in Shows awarded.

I am also a current  member of Rabbit Breeders Association of Tasmania.

 

Show Cavy need to be specially prepared ( Groomed to a very high standard) and a very high level of nutrition fed.  Boarding guinea pigs will eat the same mix as my show cavy ( Unless own food is prefered)  whilst enjoying their stay and groomed with the same products that I use on my own show Cavy.

 

I have boarded both  cavy / rabbits for many years now with long standing regular clients. 

I have indoor and out door spaces available and all are locked at night or any time I am not at home.

 

To arrange a booking or inspection please phone Kay (Me) on 0409006046 

 

Boarders will never come into direct contact with any other animal staying except those that they are housed with at home
