Aristo Stud Cavies offer good quality holiday care for small animals at an affordable price. We are caring experienced breeders of exhibition standard cavies with years of experience in keeping and producing  good quality rabbits, guineapigs, chinchillas, hamsters, degus, gerbils and fancy rats. Animals that require indoor care are housed in a purpose built fully water proof shed complete with opening windows, blinds and an electric fan to keep the occupants cool and comfortable during very hot weather.

Small animal boarding includes all feed, bedding, unlimited good quality meadow hay, fresh fruit and vegetables and daily fresh hand cut grass. You are welcome to bring your own dried food to reduce the chance of upset tummies and can also bring your own treats and toys. All animals are handled and checked over daily and given the best possible care and attention during their stay.Please enquire if you would like to take advantage of our nail trimming and grooming services during their stay as discounts apply (see below)..

We highly recommend that wherever possible you bring your own cage or hutch along as small animals adapt much better to holiday care if in a familiar environment. We are able to take indoor/outdoor hutches and will endeavour to ensure animals that live inside are kept inside during their stay to keep them happy and healthy. No animals are mixed during their stay and cages are fully cleaned and refreshed between residents.

Access to an outdoor run can be booked in advance at an additional £1.00 per day although limited availability so please enquire at the time of booking.
