Older cats and cats with health or medical problems are readily catered for at the Comfort Cattery Canberra

We regularly board cats with a variety of health problems such as diabetes, arthritis, renal failure and hyperthyroidism.  Be assured that your cat will not be in contact with any cats with infectious or contagious diseases.  All our cats are closely monitored during their stay.  They are weighed when they come in and their feeding and toileting is monitored twice a day.  Our staff are veterinary nurses and onsite veterinary care is always available. 

If your cat becomes unwell during its stay, we will contact you whenever possible before commencing treatment.  If we can’t contact you we will still provide the appropriate care and treatment needed until we can make contact.

Medical and Surgical Procedures during boarding at the Comfort Cattery Canberra

If your cat requires an elective procedure such as health checks, microchipping, dentistry, grooming, nail clips, wellness blood testing or blood pressure measurement you may find it convenient to schedule this during your cat's stay. Please speak to our receptionists or vets to arrange this. This provides an excellent opportunity to do the procedure and have your cat monitored and fully recovered before returning home.
