Cattery & Cat Boarding near Canterbury
Elgar Road Vet is the perfect place to find a loving and secure cattery service near Canterbury and nearby 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.
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.
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.
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 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 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.
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.
