Always ensure your small animal friends have access to fresh water.
If you are self-isolating, or prefer not to come into contact with anyone, your OSCAR Nutritional Advisor or delivery driver can leave your delivery in an agreed safe place. Payment can be arranged by telephone – so no cash needs to cross hands.

Ensure you have made arrangements for a family member, friend or neighbour to look after your small animal friends in case you are unable to do so.
