Cattery & Cat Boarding near Ivanhoe East
Elgar Road Vet offer safe & caring cattery services near Ivanhoe East and surrounding 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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Our team is trained to care for cats with special needs, including those on medication for hyperthyroidism, high blood pressure, or kidney and urinary tract issues. Our on-site veterinary clinic located within the cattery premises enables our duty veterinarian to attend to any emergencies or issues promptly.
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.

At D.B. Boarding, the safety and well-being of all cats in our care is paramount. Therefore, we request that all cats have a current Feline Enteritis and Cat Flu (F3 or F4) vaccination, and a certificate is shown prior to admission. We also recommend up-to-date FIV (Feline AIDS) vaccination.
The staff at D.B. Boarding is passionate and dedicated to providing excellent care for cats, and their love for felines is apparent.
