Cattery & Cat Boarding near Balwyn
Elgar Road Vet offer safe & caring cattery services near Balwyn and surrounding communities.
With a 25-year history of boarding cats, our team can provide your furry buddies with a comfortable and safe place to stay, whether it's for a brief or extended period.
Over the years, little has altered at D.B. Boarding since Devon Bayly, a young vet nurse, recognised the need for a cat boarding service among veterinary clients and established the business. The company's core concept of providing cats with a secure, comfortable, and caring environment when they're away from home has remained unchanged.
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 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 understand that cats have diverse dietary needs, which is why we provide a variety of premium feline diets. Our selection includes Advance, Hills Science and Hills Prescription Diets, Royal Canin Veterinary diets, and a vast array of Whiskas soft food to suit different tastes and preferences.
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 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.
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.
