Rabbits and Guinea Pigs
If you're looking for specialist care and grooming for your Rabbits and Guinea pigs: either a routine groom or sorting out problems such as a badly tangled or matted coat do please give us a call.
Your longer haired Rabbits and Guineas have similar grooming requirements to those of a long haired cat, particularly those with very fine hair which is prone to matting. See About Matting in the Cat section, most of which also applies to rabbits.
A common request is to "sort out" rabbits where their coats have become matted and are beyond "normal" care. One rabbit owner who now comes to us regularly had been told by her vet that the rabbit should be put down as the coat was so badly matted. With a lot of patience we were able to clip the coat off all over, bath the rabbit and let him start again. He was fine and enjoyed a new lease of life - literally!
Your bunnies and guineas may also benefit from bathing, ear & eye cleaning and nail trimming. Long haired breeds may need a clip and tidy-up, particularly round the back end if they've got mucky. This helps to keep them clean and free of parasites.
Prices are similar to a cat but generally reduced for size, see prices.
