What you need to bring for rat boarding Sydney

You will need your mousies favorite chew enrichment toys to play with during their stay. This is a requirement for all animals boarding with us, as it is our policy to provide stimulation and behavioral enrichment toys to our animals.  You can bring your own toys or purchase some new toys at Birdsville. We will not board mice without at least 1 enrichment toy, as your mouse will naturally miss the owners (you) while you are away.

Please Note: If you are aware your mouse is with any diseases or illness it will not be able to be bordered at our boarding facility as we are not vets.

Mice thrive on human interaction and require time and effort to be maintained in good health. Many of the rodent problems we see here at Birdsville or now called Petsville are all domestic animals which come from laboratory stock. Sadly these beautiful little rodents were bred for cancer or blood research and do have short life spans.  In the wild, as a prey animal lots of hungry carnivores Rats and mice as a tasty snack, so just like our other exotic species, rodents hide signs of disease and injury. As Rats and mice have such short life spans and have genetic tendency to be susceptable to cirtain deseases that all domestic stock carry.  In the wild they can live for 3 years but not quite as long for domestic mice which is between 1 and 2 years old, as a prey animal lots of hungry carnivores see mice as a tasty snack, so just like our other exotic species, rodents instinctively hide signs of disease and injury for as long as possible.  Which makes it dificult as a sick mouse can look like a healthy mouse.  Signs to look for are puffing up more than usual or wobly on the feet if your mouse is not feeling well or coming to the end of their short life.  On a positive note what they lack in longevity they sure make up for in cuteness.
