SHOW and GROOMING KIT SUPPLIES

Start a  day or two before the show:

Carrying cages prepared with water cups, litter in trays, E-Z mats for the floors, chew sticks and willow rings.  Oh!  And don't forget the rabbits!

Check your entry form and make up cage tags to identify Class, variety and sex of the animal.

Prepare pedigrees and sale signs for any rabbit you plan to sell at the show. (Be sure to check the show catalog to make sure sale animals are allowed!)

Take along extra pens.

Don't forget your business cards and a card holder.

Take a map of where you are going!

Make up a gallon of drinking water for the rabbits (with Vanodine added to reduce transport shock)

Lightweight white sheet (allows air to penetrate but not the sunlight) to throw over cages to keep direct sun off of the rabbits during transport and to keep the car cool while at the show. Just drape the sheet over the windshield and secure by closing the door on the edges.

Grooming table (folding for easy storage but large enough to offer a stable base)

Folding chairs (when shows allow them we stack our cages to compensate for the space the chairs take)

If you have wooled breeds don't forget your blower and extension cords.

Our grooming kit always has the following items:

bulletWire Slicker Brush
bulletwide tooth comb, ( wide spacing prevents tearing fur when combing)
bulletspring tooth comb (for wooled breeds)
bulletShed blade (for stubborn urine stains or dead fur)
bulletWrist guards and Kevlar Sleeves (to protect arms from scratches)
bulletNail cutters
bulletKwik Stop Blood clotting powder (to stop bleeding from nails cut too short or snagged on floor wire or judging coops)
bulletTattoo bag (Bunny Be Calm) (the safest way to confine a nervous rabbit or to do nail cutting and tattoos)
bulletTattoo Kit (Rabbi-Tat Cordless tattoo pen)
bulletTerry towels (for grooming, stain removal and hand wipes)
bulletPaper Towels ( for mopping up water and urine splashes)
bulletQ-tips (for cleaning preening glands or rubbing in tattoo ink)
bulletFur trimming scissors (ideal for baby butts and matted fur)

Small spray bottles of: the following:

bulletwater, (for grooming loose hair)
bullethydrogen peroxide, (for blood stains on clothes)
bulletvinegar and cornstarch (for removing urine stains)
bulletVanodine or Iodine Disinfectant (to disinfect cuts and scrapes on people and animals and to disinfect the judging coop before the judging and spraying the rabbit after the judging)
bulletalcohol (to clean tattoo pen after use)

For overnight trips we also carry:

bulletAdvanced Animal Bedding Material (pelleted litter to reduce odor in trays)
bulletPlastic garbage bags to dispose of used litter
bulletRabbit food and water
bulletcarrying cage cups for both food and water.  For day trips we only use water cups and feed hay or willow.

Band-aids (just because)

Cardboard carriers fold flat and out of the way in case you pick up an extra rabbit at the show.  Also great for emergency evacuations.

Don't forget your own needs like cell phone, drinks, lunch, medications, change of clothes, pillows, blankets, whatever you need to be comfortable on long or short trips.

Make a list and check it twice!  There is nothing worse than leaving something behind!

BUNNY BE CALM BAGS

This pen comes with color illustrations and instructions, needle guard, extra needle, hard case complete with ink well and commercial tattoo ink.

You can tattoo and rabbit in seconds and put them on the show table immediately.

Customers with Carpel Tunnel Syndrome tell me this has been a real benefit to them.

I've owned and used a lot of tattoo systems in the last 30 years and this is, by far, the best.

 

 
 

EAGLE VALLEY

Advanced Bedding Management

ANIMAL BEDDING - 35 pound bag

$6.14 plus Tax

Shipping based on zip code

 

We have carried this superior pelleted litter for a several of years and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.

While we intended to offer it to rabbit breeders to reduce ammonia in their barns and for pet owners with house rabbits we soon found our customers were using it for lots of different applications.

Advantages over other products seem endless but these are just a few:

Cost effective  just $6.14 for 35 pounds. Just a thin layer of pellets for small animals and a few inches thick for large livestock.

A very little product goes a long way

Rabbits will use it in litter pans and not eat it.  Urine is easily removed because it swells up when wet. Removing the wet litter and the dry pellets keep on working. I wouldn't have a rabbit in the house without it!

Used rabbit litter makes great much for flower beds.

Cat breeders are really hooked on it because it has no unpleasant flowery odor and is the most absorbent material on the market not to mention, much less expensive.  This product can be wet first to reduce it to a coarse powder for use in litter boxes and thereby increases the volumne by 1/3.  Far less expensive than conventional cat litter.

Perfect for rodents, guinea pigs, reptiles, poultry and other small animals.

Excellent bedding for trailers for more comfortable transport.

We use it to absorb rain water and to make walkways less slippery.  The pellets turn to dust when wet and can actually be dried and reused!  It helps keep weeds down in our walkways in the outdoor rabbitry area.

Use in carrying cages is a must for odor control.  Nothing worse than a long trip with pets in the car without good odor control.

Environmentally friendly. No trees are cut down to make this product.  It is made from sawmill waste.

We have it in stock here in Manteca at all times.  If you are out of our area call toll free 1-888-307-7878 for a dealer near you.

Dust Free Paper Litter

Made from recycled paper this is amazingly absorbent with no odor.  Works in litter pans, carriers (great because it's light weight) and we use it in nest boxes in winter for added warmth.  It mixes with hay for a lovely dust free nest.

E-Z Mats

DSC00455.JPG (15854 bytes)

$2.85 each plus tax

- Keeps bunny feet off the wire! 

Fur trimming scissors

$10.92 plus Tax

Shipping $2.00

DSC00458.JPG (15828 bytes)

These are the sharpest little scissors I've found.  They hold and edge and have rounded tips for safety.  Perfect for trimming baby butts prone to fecal build up or for trimming mats from wooled breeds. Not all scissors will trim soft rabbit fur.  Most will bend the fur but not cut it like these little guys do.
