Cattery & Cat Boarding near Balwyn

Elgar Road Vet proudly offers friendly and expert cattery services to the local Balwyn area.

Looking for a safe and caring cattery for your feline friends near Balwyn? Elgar Road Vet has got you covered.  

Our team has been providing boarding services for over 25 years, catering to both short-term and long-term stays. 


D.B. Boarding was established by Devon Bayly, a young vet nurse, when she recognised the demand for a cat boarding service among her veterinary clients. Since then, little has changed, and the notion of providing a secure, cosy, and compassionate environment for cats while they're away from home persists. 

Cat Boarding near Balwyn


Our team is dedicated to providing exceptional care for cats in the Balwyn area. 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 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. 

We offer a range of premium feline diets, including Advance, Hills Science and Hills Prescription Diets, and Royal Canin Veterinary diets. We also have a wide selection of Whiskas soft food available. 

For fussy eaters, we recommend that clients bring along their cat's preferred diets to ensure they are comfortable and content during their stay. 


Our staff are highly skilled and experienced in caring for cats with special needs, such as those requiring medication for hyperthyroidism, high blood pressure, kidney, or urinary tract issues. Our on-site veterinary clinic ensures that any emergencies or concerns are addressed immediately by our duty veterinarian. 


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. 


Weekdays 9.00 to 10.00am and 4.30-6.00pm
Saturdays 9.00-11.00am

Sundays 10.00-11.00am

We are closed for admitting and discharging on all public holidays.


At D.B. Boarding, the safety and well-being of all cats in our care is paramount. Therefore, we request that all cats have a current Feline Enteritis and Cat Flu (F3 or F4) vaccination, and a certificate is shown prior to admission. We also recommend up-to-date FIV (Feline AIDS) vaccination. 


Our team at D.B. Boarding is committed to cats and is enthusiastic about providing the best possible care for them.
