Cattery & Cat Boarding near Murrumbeena
Elgar Road Vet is the perfect place to find a loving and secure cattery service near Murrumbeena 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.
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.
Our facility provides premium feline diets, such as Advance, Hills Science and Hills Prescription Diets, Royal Canin Veterinary diets, and an extensive range of Whiskas soft food to cater to your cat's dietary needs.
To keep fussy eaters happy and satisfied during their stay, we suggest that clients bring along their cat's preferred diets to our facility.
Our staff are highly skilled and experienced in caring for cats with special needs, such as those requiring medication for hyperthyroidism, high blood pressure, kidney, or urinary tract issues. Our on-site veterinary clinic ensures that any emergencies or concerns are addressed immediately 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.

The staff at D.B. Boarding is passionate and dedicated to providing excellent care for cats, and their love for felines is apparent.
