Boarding a dog with diabetes (inc. blind, incontinent and epileptic dogs) Melbourne, Australia

Do you have a dog with Diabetes? When you need dog boarding - who can look after your dog? In reply to our Feb 2012 newsletter - we received an enquiry about where to board a dog with diabetes in Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Adelaide and Sydney.

The places below can help - including Wagtails who can help with boarding a dog with diabetes in Brisbane (and thanks to all who helped us unearth some answers for this dog boarding with diabetes question). Paul @ Oz Doggy. Updated March 2012

  • "Hi Paul, With regard to dogs with diabetes, one of our minders is a retired nurse and is happy to administer insulin shots to dogs. She is located in Doncaster, Melbourne, and is one of our most popular minders. She is a retired lady and is therefore home a lot of the time. The cost to have a dog stay with Dogs Bed and Breakfast is normally $35 per day, however, with insulin shots, we charge an additional $5 per day, which is passed directly onto our minder.
    Hope this is of some help,
    Kind Regards, Sheryn and the team @

  • "Hi Paul, Regarding the “Dog with Diabetes” we have a couple of carers (dog minders) that are happy to care for “dogs with special needs”. We’ve done similar dog minding assignments including blind, incontinent, and epileptic dogs. We even arranged a sleepover for a dog with diabetes and it’s owners were near Tullamarine also.

  • Hi Paul.... our boarding/daycare centre – allows dogs with medical problems, as we employ a trained nurse – and because we are with the dogs all the time, we can monitor the dogs closely to ensure they are well. We have no problems with giving injections for dogs with Diabetes.
    Kind regards
