Cattery & Cat Boarding near Bulleen
Elgar Road Vet offer safe & caring cattery services near Bulleen 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.
D.B. Boarding was first started when a young vet nurse named Devon Bayly saw the need for a cat boarding service amongst the veterinary clientele. Since those early days almost nothing has changed. The idea of providing a safe, comfortable, caring environment for cats when they are away from home remains strong.
Our staff is committed to providing your cat with the best possible care. We take pride in learning about each cat's unique personality and tailoring our services to meet their specific needs. Whether your feline friend enjoys sunbathing, receiving chin rubs and head butts, staying independent and aloof, or chasing water droplets, we have you covered. Our knowledgeable and experienced team closely monitors each boarder and looks out for any signs that might suggest something is amiss. If necessary, we offer extra attention, a change in food, or a visit to the vet to ensure the comfort and well-being of our clients' cherished cats.
At our facility, we understand that cats thrive on routine and consistency, which is why we recommend maintaining their regular diet as much as possible. For this reason, we ask our clients to provide us with their cat's dietary preferences through our Admission Form.
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 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 note that a medication surcharge of $1.50-$3.00 per day applies to cats with special needs requiring medication. We are also equipped to care for diabetic cats. Please contact us via phone or email for more information.
