Burgess Pet Care

Burgess Excel, the leading small animal food range is recommended by 92 per cent of vets in the UK. Burgess Petcare supply all the feed requirements for the small mammals at our Burford, Bromsgrove, Kimpton, Thirsk and Suffolk rehoming centres.

Burgess also supply a small mammal rehoming pack to everyone who rehomes from Blue Cross, these include all the information needed to help new owners feed their new furry friend the correct diet, a balance of nuggets, hay, fresh water and healthy treats. This is much appreciated by our rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters and chinchillas that enjoy Excel feeding hays and tasty Excel nuggets, tailored to their specific needs and life stages.

“Blue Cross is a perfect example of the gold standard of care and education that a rescue centre can provide, and so of course we wanted to help support them. As the manufacturer of the UK’s leading range of small feeds it’s only right that we do what we can to help charities like Blue Cross. With our product range, and their expertise, we can make a big difference to the lives of small furries across the UK. Blue Cross has rehoming centres dedicated to small pets across the UK which we are proud to supply with food from The Excel Feeding Plan, to ensure the animals are fed correctly whilst in rescue, and then to provide lots of support and information to the new owners to help ensure their small furries continue to have long, happy and healthy lives in their new homes. We have also worked with Blue Cross on other education initiatives such as Rabbit Awareness Week which is now in its 15th year! We are always looking at other ways that we can help each other spread the word about responsible pet ownership, especially when it comes to the small furries!”
