Terms and conditions of pet sitting rodents, rabbits and other small pets

Veiled Chameleon

During the season, I can´t accept animals requiring special care. If the health condition of the animal is concealed when ordering the pet sitting, it can be refused. I reserve the right to refuse pet which does not look healthy (sneezing, steaming, diarrhea, …) or in good shape. I also refuse pets with parasites (scabies, louse, fleas, …). I do not accept pets with infectious diseases. If your pet is ill with the infectious disease you need to make sure that I know about this fact before your arrival for pet sitting, you need to inform me about the treatment and give me the necessary medicine.
I do not accept pets with diarrhea or overgrown teeth unless I was informed in advance. Please, hand me your pet over in a good shape and health, all necessary treatments and care will have to be covered by you.

Health certificate

I need confirmation of good health quality only in rats. It is required from vet clinic Na Hůrce (www.vets4pets.cz) or Animal Hope (www.animal-hope.cz).
The health certificate is also needed in pets which suffer from some noninfectious illness. The health condition of other pets will be checked during check-in and it is not necessary to bring the health certificate from the vet.
Please, beware your hedgehog of parasites. Deworm them at least one month (at least 2 applications of Stronghold) before the pet sitting or deworm them regularly every 6 months.

Necessary vaccination of rabbits and ferrets

Ferret puppyRabbits have to be vaccinated against rabbit plague (vaccine Pestorin Mormyx or Nobivac). It is better to vaccinate rabbit also against new rabbit plague using vaccine Eravac, but it is not necessary.
Ferrets have to be vaccinated against distemper
 (I recommend vaccine Biocan) and if they are used to run outside they have to be vaccinated against rabies.
It is necessary to vaccinate your rabbit at least 2 weeks before pet sitting to make antibodies and to avoid health problems caused by weakening immune system after vaccination + transport stress. If you plan to revaccinate your pet I suggest to do so after pet sitting, your pet will feel better in its usual surroundings. I can´t accept rabbits without vaccination or vaccinated rabbits in less than 14 days before the sitting. I can ask you for a photo of the vaccination card while sending the order.

Healthy pet and stress

A healthy pet does not have a runny nose or eyes, it does not sneeze, it breathes regularly, takes care of its fur. Healthy pet eats, excretes regularly and is curious about its surroundings.
Sometimes, a seemingly healthy pet can have bacterias which do not affect it in normal conditions. Your pet can be stressed during transport so its immunity is affected and bacterias start to multiply. If your pet becomes ill during pet-sitting I am going to take care of it and make it feel comfortable. I am going to inform you about your pet’s shape and health condition. I will need you to cover bills from veterinary clinic including transport and waiting in the clinic. Becoming ill due to stress or a new environment is affecting mainly rabbits and rats. Guinea pigs can also be ill with colds, it is not good to underestimate this issue, cold can transform into pneumonia which is dangerous with the risk of death.
To prevent your pet from cold in chilly months it is good to transport it in a transport container padded by a warm material or a bag covered by a blanket or a towel. If you do not have your own container I can pick your pet in your car with my own container for small pets.
