About Us

Hello. Here at Sleepy Burrows we offer a specialist small animal boarding service, cared for by a Qualified Registered Veterinary Nurse.

Located near Romford conveniently within easy reach of the M25, A12 and A127.

We strongly believe that all Pets should receive comfort, security and exercise at all times.

I have been nursing for 22 years and I am passionate about animal health care which of course includes the importance of housing, husbandry and enrichment for our Pets.

Whilst your Pet stays with us they will be treated as our own giving them as much comfort as we can provide.
