Cattery & Cat Boarding near Ashburton
Elgar Road Vet offer safe & caring cattery services near Ashburton and surrounding communities.
Our team has been boarding cats for over 25 years, providing both long and short-term accommodation options for your furry friends.
Devon Bayly, a young veterinary nurse, founded D.B. Boarding after seeing a need for cat boarding services among her veterinary clients. Since those early days, very little has changed, and the company's focus on providing cats with a safe, comfortable, and loving environment when they're away from home remains as strong as ever.
At our facility, our staff is dedicated to providing the best possible care for your cat. We take pride in getting to know each feline and making sure their unique needs are met. Whether your cat prefers basking in the sun, getting chin rubs and headbutts, being independent and aloof, or chasing water droplets around the sink, we can cater to their needs. Our experienced and knowledgeable team closely monitors each boarder for any signs of distress. If necessary, we offer extra attention, a change in food, or a visit to the vet to ensure the well-being and happiness of our clients' beloved pets.
To ensure that your cat's routine isn't disrupted, we suggest sticking to their home diet as closely as possible. Therefore, we kindly request that clients provide us with their cat's dietary preferences on our Admission Form.
Our facility provides premium feline diets, such as Advance, Hills Science and Hills Prescription Diets, Royal Canin Veterinary diets, and an extensive range of Whiskas soft food to cater to your cat's dietary needs.
To keep fussy eaters happy and satisfied during their stay, we suggest that clients bring along their cat's preferred diets to our facility.
Our team is trained to care for cats with special needs, including those on medication for hyperthyroidism, high blood pressure, or kidney and urinary tract issues. Our on-site veterinary clinic located within the cattery premises enables our duty veterinarian to attend to any emergencies or issues promptly.
At D.B. Boarding, a medication surcharge ranging from $1.50 to $3.00 per day applies to cats with special requirements that need medication. We also offer care for diabetic cats. Please contact us via phone or email for further information.
