Cattery & Cat Boarding near Templestowe
Looking for a safe and caring cattery for your feline friends near Templestowe? Elgar Road Vet has got you covered.
Our team has been boarding cats for over 25 years, providing both long and short-term accommodation options for your furry friends.
D.B. Boarding was first started when a young vet nurse named Devon Bayly saw the need for a cat boarding service amongst the veterinary clientele. Since those early days almost nothing has changed. The idea of providing a safe, comfortable, caring environment for cats when they are away from home remains strong.
Our staff is committed to providing your cat 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.
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 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 staff is equipped to care for cats with special needs, such as those on medication for hyperthyroidism, high blood pressure, kidney or urinary tract issues. Our on-site veterinary clinic provides peace of mind, as any issues or emergencies can be attended to 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.
