Trialing Monday evenings

We’ve extended Monday opening hours to 8pm. We have more toys for rabbits in the clinic! These include chew toys, throw toys and great cocoons to hide in. We also have a range of gourmet hays available: Oxbow Western Timothy Hay, Botanical Hay, and Orchard Grass Hay which may help entice rabbits and guinea pigs to eat more hay.

Happy New Year!

We’re excited to start 2013 with some good news:

Congratulations to Tim Ruschena and Lauren Sebek on completing their veterinary degree. We will miss them on our nursing team but wish them all the best in their future veterinary careers.

Remember to keep your rabbits and guinea pigs cool during the summer heat.

Hay sold at the clinic

We’ve been stocking locally produced oaten hay for many years now as we believe that hay is so important for rabbits and guinea pigs. Hay is  product of nature and is cut seasonally.
