Here at Orchard we are proud to be a RWAF (Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund) Rabbit-Friendly Silver Practice. This standard is only awarded to practices that: adhere to RWAF’s strict standards of rabbit veterinary care; satisfy an involved application process investigating our standard procedures and invest in continued rabbit-specific staff training.

For example, this means:

  • We routinely intubate and have sophisticated monitoring techniques for
    bunnies under anaesthesia, including capnography
  • We are experienced with routine neutering surgical procedures
  • We are experienced at providing excellent pain relief to all our patients
  • We are able to house your bunnies away from predator species during a stay with us
  • We have a separate waiting area away from predator species (farm reception)
  • We stock all the available rabbit vaccines
  • We have specific vets and nurses who take a keen interest in rabbits and who have completed continual professional training in this area.

We invest in membership with RWAF annually to remain up-to-date, reassuring you that we are 100% committed to providing the best in rabbit care. Should you have any further questions about bringing your bunny to Orchard Vets, please do not hesitate to call and take a look at our checklist here. Also, don’t forget that our nurses provide free-of-charge rabbit clinics for all your husbandry, diet and management questions!
