Bonding

Bonding bunnies to each other is a whole story on its own.

This services is not charged for as long as you are paying the boarding fee. Please discuss this with us before booking, as it requires extra time and effort. 

Veterinary Care

If in the event that a critter requires medical attention, we make use of Bromhof Veterinary Clinic or Sunninghill Village Vets’ services during office hours. If medical attention is urgently sought after hours, we make use of Radiokop Veterinary Clinic Or Fourways Vet Clinic. The Strawberry Bunny Hotel will pay for the account while you are away, but you will be required to refund them as soon as possible. All invoices and records of treatment will be kept for you to take to your normal vet. If you require the use of a different vet, please discuss this beforehand.

The Strawberry Foundation has a basic first aid kit of all medicines that a critter might require. Our vast experience allows us to quickly notice changes in a critter’s behaviour and to act accordingly. We will thus be able to initiate treatment before seeing the vet. If this arrangement does not suit you, please let us know beforehand.
