Requirements for boarding
We want to make sure that your pet is safe from sneezes, wheezes and contagious diseases during their stay! For this reason, we require all pets to be up to date with their vaccinations, worming and flea treatment. Owners must provide evidence (including product name and date of application/treatment) that their cat has been given all of the following:
- F3 vaccination within the past 12 months
- All wormer tablets or Profender wormer spot-on within the past 3 months
- Flea treatment within the past month
lf we are unable to confirm that your pet is up to date with all of the above, then they will provided with what they need on admission and this will be charged to your account. We recommend you book in to see a vet when dropping your pet off so that we can discuss any relevant history and physical examination findings with you. This consult is free of charge, available by appointment.
Your cat’s spacious quarter provides individual living, sleeping and toileting areas. Condos are available if you have more than one cat, or if your cat requires a little extra luxury. Condos available upon request.
lf you are travelling overseas then we ask that you leave the name and number of an emergency contact in Australia who is authorised to act on your behalf if we are unable to reach you.
What food do you use?
At the Dr Paws Cattery we believe in precise nutrition, that’s why we recommend feeding cats a Royal Canin neutered diet. Cats are fed premium Royal Canin Neutered Adult Cat food. lf your cat is on a special diet or the above food is not suitable, then we kindly ask that you leave with us enough of the special food to last the duration of their stay. If not enough food is provided, we will source the food or a suitable substitute which will be charged to your account.
Leaving toys and blankets
We do not recommend leaving bedding/ blankets or toys with your cat as they are likely to be lost in our laundry pile! Labelled cat carriers may be left at the clinic at your own risk.
The cattery is open by appointment for people to walk through and view the facility. Please contact us directly on 5427 9200 to arrange a viewing.
