Cattery & Cat Boarding near Balwyn North
Elgar Road Vet offer safe & caring cattery services near Balwyn North and surrounding communities.
For more than a quarter of a century, our team has been offering cat boarding services, giving your feline companions a place to stay whether it's for a short or long period.
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.
Our team is dedicated to providing exceptional care for your cat. We take pride in getting to know each cat and meeting their individual needs. Whether your feline enjoys sunbathing in the afternoons, getting chin scratches and head butts, prefers to be independent and aloof, or loves chasing droplets of water around the sink, we have it all covered. Our skilled and knowledgeable staff keep a close eye on every boarder and remain vigilant for any signs that something might be amiss. If extra cuddles, a different food flavour, or a trip to the vet is necessary, clients can be confident that their beloved cat is in capable hands.
To keep changes to a minimum and maintain your cat's diet routine, we request that you provide us with details of your cat's dietary preferences on our Admission Form. We understand that cats are creatures of habit and prefer to stick to what they know.
We cater to your cat's dietary preferences by offering a selection of premium feline diets, such as Advance, Hills Science and Hills Prescription Diets, Royal Canin Veterinary diets, and a variety of Whiskas soft food.
If your cat is a fussy eater, we recommend that you bring along their preferred diets to keep them content and comfortable during their stay with us.
Our team is proficient in taking care of cats with special requirements, such as those requiring medication for hyperthyroidism, high blood pressure, or kidney and urinary tract issues. Our on-site veterinary clinic situated within the cattery ensures that any problems or emergencies are addressed instantaneously by our duty veterinarian.
Please be aware that 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. For further details, please contact us by phone or email.
