Cattery & Cat Boarding near Blackburn
If you're seeking a reliable and nurturing cattery in the vicinity of Blackburn, Elgar Road Vet is your go-to choice.
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.
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.
At D.B. Boarding, we recognise that cats are creatures of habit, and keeping to their home diet is essential. That's why we request that our clients provide us with their cat's dietary preferences on our Admission Form to maintain their routine and minimise disruptions.
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.
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.
For cats with special needs that require medication, a medication surcharge of $1.50-$3.00 per day applies. We also cater to diabetic cats at D.B. Boarding. For more information, please get in touch with us by phone or email.
