Cattery & Cat Boarding near Toorak
Elgar Road Vet is the perfect place to find a loving and secure cattery service near Toorak and nearby communities.
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.
We strive to provide unparalleled care for your cat. Our team takes the time to get to know each cat and fulfill their specific requirements. Whether your cat loves to lounge in the sun, receive chin rubs and head butts, prefer to keep to themselves, or enjoy chasing water droplets around, we've got it all covered. Our experienced staff carefully observe every boarder and remain alert for any signs of discomfort or trouble. Whether it's providing extra cuddles, trying a new food flavour, or arranging a veterinary check-up, we guarantee that our clients' beloved felines are in competent hands.
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.
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.
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.
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.
