When looking for a place for your pet to stay, its important knowing that they’re safe and comfortable. Whether your dog is your fur-baby or your tough-as-nails workmate, we can ensure they will have a stay that has them dragging you in the door on their next stay!
Our indoor kennels are airconditioned and floor heated, meaning your dog will be kept comfortable and safe, year-round. Each dog gets an individual run, unless owners request that dogs from the same family share a run.
Our spacious outdoor yards mean your dog will get plenty of exercise during their stay. We have a mixture of grassed and un-grassed exercise yards, so we can cater to our furry friends with allergies. Dogs are exercised at least twice daily and more often if time and weather permits.
Our cattery is fully indoor, heated and cooled to ensure your cat has the most comfortable stay. Our cat condos are purpose built and provide each cat with a private sleeping area as well as a private toileting area. We also have a spacious, fully enclosed outdoor area if your cat likes to feel the wind in their whiskers, or just wants to snooze in the sun.
The cattery is physically separate from the kennels to ensure that the cats have a peaceful stay. If you have multiple cats and would like them to be housed together we can book them into adjoining condos.
We use Feliway® pheromone diffusers in the cattery to help reduce anxiety.
We offer daycare for both cats and dogs. Whether you’re working all week and your dog is bored at home, having the house sprayed and want to ensure that your cats and dogs will be safe from toxic chemicals, or just want you dog to have a day out and a wash, daycare is perfect for your pet!
Each daycare dog gets their own indoor run during the day and we rotate them through our outdoor runs during the day with our overnight boarders.
Daycare is a safe way to get your dog used to being around other dogs in a controlled and supervised environment. While we mix the small dogs in our outdoor yards, we don’t mix medium or large dogs. We do this to ensure the safety of your pet and our staff.
If you wish to know more about our daycare program please don’t hesitate to call and chat to our friendly staff.
To protect your pets, we require all animals to be fully vaccinated before boarding. This means a current C5 vaccination for dogs and F3 for cats – this means they have been fully vaccinated at least 14 days before admission. If your pet’s vaccinations are close to being due, we recommend they have their booster brought forward to be assured of the best immunity level.
Please email evidence of all vacciations through to us prior to your date of admission. We also recommend that pets have their worming and flea control up to date.

At Family Vet Centre Boarding we feed only high quality, Australian made pet food to the pets in our care. We believe it is important to treat each pet as our own, which is why we only supply diets that we would feed our own pets. We have worked in conjunction with our vets to select the most suitable diets for boarding; something nutritious, delicious and gentle on the tummy!
