Due to personal commitments and the time required to successfully bond bunnies, I am not taking bookings for bonding at the current time - apologies. If you are considering acquiring a friend for your bunny, Reading Rabbit Rescue bond for you when you adopt from them. If you already have a pair, I believe Reggies Retreat in Bracknell offer a bonding service.
I do advocate and follow the following advice which you may find helpful: www.actionforrabbits.co.uk/bonding



Rabbits must be vaccinated and the vaccination must be in date, and not due to expire until two weeks after their stay. This vaccination should be against Myxi/VHD (Nobivac) AND ADDITIONALLY a separate (Filivac) vaccine given against RHVD(VHD)2, the newer strain of the disease. A valid vaccination record card must be shown when you deliver your pet. Rabbits must be neutered unless not for age or medical reasons (please discuss before booking)


You will need to provide your pet's usual dried food if they do not eat Supreme Science Selective, Pets at Home own brand nuggets or Burgess Excel.

Unwell animals, pregnant animals and those on medication may not be boarded. 

For all boarders, a boarding contract must be signed by you, which confirms your acceptance of our Terms & Conditions. You will also be asked to complete an Information Form, giving us details about your individual pet/s and their needs. 


Unlike dog kennels, small boarding facilities require no licencing. As stated in our Boarding Contract, pets are left at the owner's risk. Should your pet become ill,you will be contacted. They will be taken for veterinary attention at your expense and, Dandelion Den Bunnies is released from all and any responsibility for illness or an animal passing away in our care, although all efforts will be made to avoid both scenarios. On rare occassion, it may be necessary to seek emergency veterinary treatment and in that case, your pet will be given priority treatment first and you will be contacted on arrival at the vets, as the opportunity presents.


A NOTE ABOUT E.C (E.Cuniculi) in rabbits and Mites


E.cuniculi is a tiny single celled protozoal parasite, which has to live inside a host cell in order to survive. E.cuniculi primarily infects rabbits and is a significant cause of disease. There is no vaccine for EC. A recent survey found that 52% of rabbits carry the disease, although only 6% ever show any symptoms. As well as general good husbandry, we do use veterinary grade disinfectant to clean our hutches and also steam clean them frequently. However, some people choose to give their rabbits a course of Panacur when they come into boarding. This is a personal decision and must be made by yourselves. For those who require it, more information about EC in rabbits can be found at this reliable source: http://www.vets-now.com/pet-owners/rabbit-care-advice/e-cuniculi-in-rabbits 


Mites are believed to be present in small numbers on a large proportion of animals and are known to travel on hay and straw. Although not visible to the naked eye and not exisiting in large enough numbers to cause a noticeable problem, any change in environment can cause some level of stress to some animals and, when the immune system is suppressed due to stress, these pets are more likely to encounter a problem with illness or mites. Preventative treatments are available but veterinary advice must be sought as to which are suitable.
