At the Blackburn Vet we have an in-clinic cattery which houses ten cats comfortably. When our furry visitors stay in our accommodation, they will enjoy a variety of services.
Cared by our veterinary staff
All guests boarding in our facility are cared for by a team of trained, veterinary staff. We love all our guests and we visit frequently during the day for a pat and a cuddle. It doesn’t take long to get to know our guests' routines and little quirks. This is why we have many return visitors.
Each individual enclosure has multi-level platforms and comes complete with comfortable fluffy bedding, igloo, scratching post and toys, to ensure your beloved kitty feels right at home. Our cattery also has temperature control, we have the heating on for the cold days and nights and the air conditioner on for the hot days. We also have a security window we can open and close to let fresh air in during the day. We use a Feliway diffuser in our cattery, which operates 24/7. These calming pheromones are continually released into the cattery to help the cats feel safe and secure and reduce any stress of being away from their home. If your cats have any favourite bedding/ blankets/ toys, then you are most welcome to also bring them in to make them feel more comfortable.
Premium cat food
All guests receive premium cat food - Royal Canin Feline Adult Dry, Wet or Dental diet food (unless requested otherwise).
Medications and/or special diets
Cats requiring daily medication(s) will incur additional fees. Medications must be clearly labelled, and detailed instructions given at the time of admission. If your cat is on a special diet you can bring that in, and we will solely feed that at no extra charge.
Because we are a vet clinic we offer a FREE cattery health check with a veterinarian to all of visitors, whether you are a client at the clinic or not. If requested, we can also offer other services while your furry friend is boarding with us. These might include services such as senior checks with blood/ urine testing and dental procedures. If your cat is a part of our Best for Pet program, then you will also get a discount on these procedures as well as two nights of FREE cat boarding per year.
Harper is one of our regular and senior patients, who recently stayed with us in our cattery. He is on our Best for Pet program, so when he boarded with us, he would have had the option for us to perform his senior blood test and urine test all while in clinic on his holiday. Harper also claimed his two nights of FREE cat boarding too.
To be eligible to board…
All cats must be up to date with their F3 vaccinations. A certificate of vaccination is required at the time of check in. We also strongly recommend that all cats receive intestinal worming and flea prevention prior to their stay. We can administer on arrival if requested.
Please note that during Easter and Christmas, bookings need to be made early in advance. Please call us to book your cat in today!
