Happy healthy pets, let our veterinarians look after your pets.

Boarding

Going on holidays soon? Blackburn Animal Hospital offers cat boarding facilities!

Before considering whether to board your cat please check their vaccination records to make sure they have been vaccinated within the past 12 months. If your cat is due for a booster vaccination make sure this is done well ahead of the boarding period.
 

Blackburn Animal Hospital has a designated area for cat boarding. The skilled and experienced staff looking after your kitten or cat at Blackburn Animal Hospital throughout their stay are trained veterinarians and veterinary nurses. They have the skills and ability to detect any abnormalities or illness at the earliest possible time and are trained in animal handling. The team at Blackburn Animal Hospital focus on ensuring your cat is in a stress free environment and are provided with toys, bedding, Feliway® Diffusers (a pheremone which is a synthetic copy of the familiarisation facial pheromone that cats use to mark objects in their environment) running to decrease stress in cats as well as wet and dry food, litter trays and litter.
 

You will need to inform Blackburn Animal Hospital of any health problems your pet may have had or is prone to. If medication is to be administered you should let us know at time of booking. Write down the dose, frequency and name of medication. If on long term medication, please ensure you bring along extra just in case. 

An ideal boarding facility for your pet has a relaxed, calm atmosphere, created by having fewer kennels/animals, a design that minimises stress and allows maintenance of a high standard of hygiene.

Please give us a call to discuss boarding and determine if your pet is up to date with the required vaccinations.
Blackburn Animal Hospital recommends booking well in advance for busy periods such as Easter and Christmas
