HISTORY

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. 

Cat Boarding near Deepdene

ETHOS

Our staff is committed to providing Deepdene residents, and their cats, 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. 

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 offer a range of premium feline diets, including Advance, Hills Science and Hills Prescription Diets, and Royal Canin Veterinary diets. We also have a wide selection of Whiskas soft food available. 

We understand that some cats can be fussy eaters. To ensure their comfort, we kindly request that clients bring along their cat's preferred diets. 

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. 

 

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.
