    Default Rabbit boarders in/around York?

    Hi there,

    Happy New Year to everyone.

    I'm on the lookout for good rabbit boarders in/around the York area....just thinking ahead to summer holiday time. Don't mind traveling a short distance but not so far that it stresses the bun or is impractical.

    Would be very grateful for suggestions/weblinks.

    Thanks!

    I have never been but just googled and found this. Might be worth going and having a look round before you book

    Thanks for the suggestion

    We have used this place recently and have mixed feelings...so was wondering if any forum members had experience (good and bad) of other places in/around York.

    Hope someone else can suggest somewhere for you

    I notice your a new bunny mum

    When I first got my bun (about 8 months ago) I thought I new a lot about them but coming on here really opened my eyes and made me realise just how little i actually knew. It's really fascinating learning about them and I am still learning now.

    Hope you find this forum useful and welcome

    Thank you

    Gosh, yes - a steep learning curve! Got our buns in August, and lost one after 10 days which was awful. The other bun is off for neutering next week and then bonding with a lady bun at a rabbit rescue in Bradford...fingers crossed that all works out.

    This forum is great - I have learned so much, but learning more each day...just going through the hormonal boy bunny bit at the mo
    It's great to have so much knowledge and experience available and people so willing to help and advise.

    We went through that stage a few weeks ago! Bernard was neutered but it took a couple of weeks for his hormones to then calm down. We have bonded him with a bun from the RSPCA in York and they are so happy together! We are picking up another bun from Barnsley next week and hoping to bond them as a trio (we must be mad )

    Did you find out what happened to your bun poor thing and poor you that must have been awful

    Our bun, Jeff, has taken a shine to my teenage daughter and courted her with circling and honking yesterday...all very cute till he sprayed her

    Really pleased your bonding went well, and good luck for the next one!
    Would love any tips on neutering after-care if you have time...

    We're not sure, but the vet thought it was EC....it struck in the night so we didn't see anything wrong until breakfast time...fine the night before, flaked out in spasms the next day. The vet thought it best to have him PTS.
    Poor little guy.

    We removed everything from bernards cage and replaced it with news paper and blankets. He is usually free range but we locked him in for the night to stop him from over stretching and damaging the stitches.

    We gave him a bowl of water as well as his usual water bottle so that he could lay down and sip instead of having to make an effort with his bottle.

    When bernard came home he was so drousy from the GA that he collapsed in his cage and just rested for hours so try to do as much as you can to keep the him comfortable and peaceful.

    try to keep hay in a rack rather than spread on the cage floor so that he is not laid on prickles.

    The wound will be fairly small as it isn't a massive operation for boys but you need to keep an eye on it if you can and make sure it doens't weep. He will probably attempt to itch it and bite it and it will be irritating so try to prevent this as much as you can but don't be too hard on him if he is just cleaning around the wound.

    Hope this helps

    (boys bounce back really quickly)

    ETA: try not to use saw dust/wood shavings as it will irritate the wound. If you need to use it for his litter tray then it should be fine but try to use as little as possible

    Thanks! That is a big help.
    How long did you keep Bernard in his cage - was it just overnight?
    Jeff is an outdoor bun, so would usually be outside nestling in straw and hay in his hutch....so I guess we'll have to modify that a bit. We'll bring him indoors in a cage for a night/couple of nights but am not sure what to bed him on outdoors if the temperature drops again....he has a snugglesafe, but would probably hump/eat a blanket if we put that in with him
