Thread: Rabbit boarding London

    Sadly, from previous experience I wouldn't recommend to board a rabbit here, even though my old Vet - who was fantastic and very bunny savy worked at one of their other branches. We tried it once many years ago in the 90's and were very disappointed. The accommodation we were shown on a pre visit was not where our rabbit was housed when we arrived with him just before we left for our holiday, it was outside; I asked for him to be moved and they quickly, infront of me put him in an inside pen that had just be vacated, and although they cleared it out they weren't going to disinfect it until I mentioned it. I spent the entire holiday worrying about him. Also we left some eye drops which we don't believe were used. However, as I say this was many years ago so perhaps it may it have changed since them.

    I haven't used them myself so can't give a personal recommendation. However they state they have on site vets which would give peace of mind. Although one thing that concerned me was they only say they "recommend" that rabbits should be vaccinated. Personally I would only want to board my rabbits somewhere where proof of vaccination was mandatory.

    If you're anywhere near Chingford it might be worth visiting to see what it's like as they unfortunately don't seem to have any photos of the accommodation either!

    Thank you. It's really useful to hear feedback from someone who has used them. I'd like to think they've improved since you used them but unfortunately there's no guarantee of that! As I mentioned in my OP, there are things about them that are setting off red flags for me, particularly the non-insistance on vaccinations and lack of photos of the accommodation. Also from what I could see no mention of how rabbit savvy they are there.

    My gut feeling is telling me to avoid them and sadly you're experience does confirm that.
