The vaccination for RVHD2 is 6 monthly for boarding rabbits or if it is over 6 months since their last vaccination then a booster is required. If you can't provide proof of up to date vaccinations or you arrive within the required immunity timescales your booking will be cancelled and your deposit is non-refundable.
Giant Breeds. We don't board giant or giant cross breeds of rabbits as our suites were designed for smaller breeds.

Checking-In and Checking-Out times are listed on our 'Contact' page and are by an agreed appointment time only. If you are running late you must phone us to let us know, as there may not be anyone to greet you when you arrive. If your checking-out time/date is delayed and you need an extra night/s we will do what we can to accommodate this and any extra days are charged at the normal daily rate. If you collect your pet before their arranged checking-out date, there is no refund for 'unused' days.
Collection Service. Is individually priced depending upon mileage and parking fees/availability and time of day. Pets must be ready when we arrive with their booking form and vaccination certificates and we will go through our checking in procedure before we set off and the same conditions apply. If you are not in when we arrive you will have to arrange to drop them off to us instead. However, you will still be charged for our mileage costs.

contagious will be refused boarding and your deposit is non-refundable.
