VP Pet Boarding and Nursing
Pet Boarding in Morecambe
Here at VP Pet Supplies, we aim to provide exceptional boarding care for your pet and peace of mind that your pet is receiving the best possible care whilst you are away from home. Your pet’s care is tailored specifically to their needs and normal routine as much as possible, all backed with over 20 years of Veterinary Nursing expertise.
The purpose-built boarding lodge offers spacious accommodation and secure exercise facilities to ensure the wellbeing of your pet. In season, we offer fresh vegetables from our vegetable garden as well as our very tasty VP Banquet Range!
The Lodge opened in 2016 offering boarding to rabbits, guinea pigs, Chinchillas, Degus and Small Animals.
The Lounge was opened in March 2018 expanding our reptile boarding provision. This now boasts several tortoise tables and vivariums, catering for small and large breed tortoises, lizards and snakes. It caters for every aspect of your reptile’s care inclusively. Accommodation numbers are limited to ensure plenty of quality time is lavished on each boarder throughout their stay.
More About VP Pets
Home from Home
We provide bowls, reptile baths, hay racks, extra-large pod beds and water bottles as standard. In addition to all mainstream small animal pellet foods, fresh produce, forage, reptile live food, hay, sawdust, and bedding. This will be consistent with what is offered at home.
However, to ensure a smooth transition between home and boarding we encourage owners to bring some creature comforts. Such items can include their favourite toy, blanket, dust baths or bowls. We feel this helps reduce any anxiety and offers a little security. Where possible we also ask for a small amount of used bedding/substrate to put in their boarding accommodation for familiarity.

Veterinary Nurse Appointments in Morecambe
As a registered Veterinary Nurse, I offer health checks and nurse consultations. This can be for a general health check, pre and post hibernation check or small animal grooming. All consultations are by appointment only and should never be used as an alternative to a vet visit. Consequently, if your pet is showing any signs or symptoms of illness it is imperative, you seek advice from your vet. I will be unable to assist with any vet worthy queries, illness or injury. The health checks are routine appointments only, therefore they should not be considered in an emergency.
