We are entering some wintery months ahead and to make sure your pet continues to be in the best health, here is some advice during this season.
Make sure your rabbit or guinea pig has access to a fresh water supply and regularly check their supply hasn’t frozen
Make sure your small furries have a good supply of clean and dry bedding, consider adding a little extra bedding on those colder nights to help them keep toasty. It is a good idea to raise the hutch off the ground to prevent the base becoming too cold and damp if possible
Be prepared to move them somewhere that can protect them from the elements – this could be a shed, garage or utility room. If you do move your pets indoors, make sure not to put them too close to a heat source (e.g. radiator) as they can easily suffer from heat exhaustion
Please do not house your pets in a greenhouse or conservatory as the temperature in these environments can vary dramatically
Be prepared! In winter we never know what the weather might do, make sure you have enough food and supplies of medication for your pets if colder weather or snow is forecast
