Countdown to an Awesome Summer:
5 Tips for You and Your Small Pet

Summer is just around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited! Whether you're planning an adventurous vacation or looking forward to cozy moments at home, we have everything you need to celebrate the season with your furry friend.

​

1. Pamper Your Pet πŸ’…

​

From gentle brushes to LED nail trimmers, we have all the tools you need for a successful spa day at home.

​

Want help choosing a grooming tool or to book an appointment with Alice in Bunderland's in-house groomer? Contact us by replying to this email or texting us at (503) 332-5617.

​

2. Stock Up on Tasty Treats & Chews 🧁

Giving your pet a special treat can be an excellent way to bond with them, encourage enrichment activities and reward them for good behavior (like sitting still for grooming). We have a variety of quality treats and toys to help you keep your pet excited and active.

​

Summer is also a great time to feed the occasional fresh fruit or veggie. Visit websites from Portland-area rescues Rabbit Advocates and Little Critter Crew for some pet safe ideas.

Lu & Stu recently tried watermelon for the first time; check out our Instragram reel to see what they thought:

3. Vacation Planning - for Your Pet 🏝️

​

Whether you are bringing your pet with you or hiring a pet sitter, here are some of our vacation 'travel kit' favorites:

​

  • ​Plastic 2 Door Pet Carrier - Keeps your pet safe and comfortable during car rides. Available in 2 sizes. Add a summer-themed sticker for extra fun!
  • ​Nervous System Herbal Poppers and Supportive Forage - Soothing treats designed to alleviate anxiety and stress
  • ​Seagrass Folding Tunnel - An easy to pack, familiar favorite that will help your pet adjust to environmental changes
  • A notecard taped to your pet's carrier with their name, age, any notable health issues and their preferred food(s). If you are traveling away from home with your pet, include info for the closest exotic-savvy emergency vets just in case.

​

4. Stay Cool 🧊

Bunnies love to flip bowls; help them stay hydrated with a heavyweight, dishwasher safe ceramic bowl.

​

Feed fresh greens like red leaf lettuce and cilantro in one of our adorable lettuce bowls for extra hydration.

​

​

If your small pet uses a water bottle, make sure to test the ball bearing each time you refill it to make sure it is working correctly.

​

5. Hop Over for Our Community Events πŸ₯³

Stay tuned for exciting summer events at Alice in Bunderland! From pet care workshops to community meet-ups, we have a fantastic lineup of activities designed to bring our community together and celebrate our love for small pets.

If you spend enough time around bunnies, you realize how good they are at living in the moment and asking for what they need. Spending quality time with Lu and Stu always reminds me to slow down and remember to appreciate the simpler things in life. I see them sleeping soundly on an afternoon I have off from work and realize "a nap sounds really nice". Or I come home from a busy day and grab a small scoop of Sherwood Measured Pellets from the bookcase in their room. Even though they eat the...
