Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I tour your facilities?
    We welcome you to tour our facilities during our open hours. Just contact us to arrange a suitable time.
  • Are the suites air-conditioned?
    For the complete comfort of our guests all of our facilities are temperature controlled.
  • Do dogs have access to the area?
    Our facilities are completely canine free and fully secured.
  • Is there anything I need to do before my cat comes to visit?

    Cats over 6 months of age must be desexed. If your cat needs to be desexed please contact us for more information on this procedure.

    To ensure the well-being of all cats, vaccinations must be current. If your cat has not been vaccinated by one of our practices, we must sight proof of vaccination before boarding your feline companion. As a general rule, cats should be fully vaccinated at least 10-14 days prior to their stay with us. If your cat needs to be vaccinated we can assist at any of our 4 AdelaideVet Practices across Adelaide.

    For the comfort and protection of others, we also request that your cat is up to date with flea and worm prevention.

  • What are the check-in and check-out times?
    When you check your cat into one of our boarding facilities, we have a trained member of our staff spend some time with you learning about your cat’s usual routine and particulars. Likewise, on check out we like one of our staff to let you know how your cat went while boarding and give any advice we think may be helpful, specific to your pet. To make sure we have someone available to spend this time with you we try at the time of booking to schedule specific check in/out times with you. Generally, we are available to check in/out your cat between 9am – 10am and between 4pm – 5pm Monday to Friday. Our AdelaideVet Stirling clinic does close at 4pm on Wednesdays so please keep this in mind when planning your check in/out.

    If you are boarding your cat at AdelaideVet Trinity Gardens we can also accommodate check in or check out on the weekends, between 10am – 11am on Saturday and Sunday. Please note that all other AdelaideVet clinics are closed for normal operation on weekends, so we are unable to facilitate check in or check out times.
