Choosing Holiday Care For Small Animals

Over the years, I've kept a variety of small animals including hamsters, chameleons and indoor rabbits. I know it can be difficult to choose holiday care for your pets, and I started this blog to share my experience and tips I've gathered over the years for choosing pet care when you go on holiday. I've used boarding kennels that offer small animal boarding and hired both live-in and live-out pet sitters, and I post on a range of topics, such as how to check references, the importance of maintaining your pet's routine and questions to ask prospective care staff. I hope you find my blog useful.
