HISTORY

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 Burwood

ETHOS

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

FOOD

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 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. 

To keep fussy eaters happy and satisfied during their stay, we suggest that clients bring along their cat's preferred diets to our facility. 

MEDICATION

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. 

 

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.
