  • Q: What do you need to know about my pet prior to check in?

    A: Upon booking I will send out booking confirmation and a care form to you which needs to be filled in and returned to the hotel prior to check in.

Also who to contact in an emergency.

  • Q: What if my pet becomes ill?

    A: If your pet becomes ill I will take them to the vets for treatment– this will either be their regular vet or Meir Park veterinary centre. I will endeavor to contact the owner first but whereby I am unable to make contact I will make the decision as to the best care and treatment for your pet. Any costs from the vet and out of pocket expenses by Hawthorne bunny and small pet hotel will be reimbursed by the owner at the earliest opportunity.
  • Q: My pet takes medication, is this a problem?

    A: This is not a problem – I will happily administer any medication required for your pet

    A: Of course – we’ve had some very furry guests who have been groomed daily and pampered.
  • Q: What vaccinations does my pet need prior to coming to stay?

    A: With bunnies I ask for them to be up to date with the recommended vaccinations for Myxomatosis and Rabbit Haemorrhagic disease. These are readily available at vets. There is a recommended optional vaccination for Rabbit Haemorrhagic disease 2 (RHD2) which is a stronger strain of the disease but not regularly available at all vets. Until this vaccination is readily available I cannot enforce it.
  • Q: Can I get updates on how my pet is while I am away on holiday?

    A: Of course you can! Your pet will happily send you updates on his/her holiday via facebook, text, whatsapp etc. They may even send you a postcard!!
