Bunny Boarding & Pet Sitting Illinois

How to prepare for your buns' stay, and what questions should you ask the carers?

As a bun guardian, I know just how hard it is to leave your bunny in the care of someone else, but sometimes it's needed. You need a vacation, and frankly, so does your bunny. That being said, you need to make sure your bun is being cared for with the same love and attention given by you.

Below are some tips and questions you can ask to help you make the right decision.

Tip #1 - Ask about their experience

This is probably the most important question. You know your bunny best, so ask them about their experience with similar rabbits. If your bun has special needs, make sure you ask about that. If there are multiple people caring for your rabbit, ask how that works and how often a bunny guru is there to check on your bun. Don't forget to ask about their emergency plans!

Tip #2 - Ask about the accommodations

Not every accommodation fits every bun's needs. The best places will understand that and allow some customization to fit your rabbit's lifestyle. At a minimum, they should have a space that is 4ftx4ft xpen and provide 1-2 hours of exercise a day.

Tip #3 - Ask what to bring & what is included.

Every place is different, so this make a very important question. Make a list of all your bun's needs so that when you go to pack up the day of, you have something to reference. At a minimum, you should have a blanket or towel that smells like home, their favorite toys, bowls for food and water, backup hay, pellets (if on a special diet), and any medications they are on. Some places do not offer fresh greens unless you bring it, so make sure to ask.

Tip #4 - Vaccinate

Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease is highly contagious, but we already have a wonderful vaccine that so far is 100% effective against it. The vaccination takes a minimum of two shots, three weeks apart, so make sure you plan for that.
