Dr. Tarlochan Singh
Head Veterinarian and Surgeon
Dr. Tarlochan Singh graduated from the Queensland University Veterinary School in 1999. After working with small animals in Melbourne and Canada, he established East Bentleigh Animal Care as a single vet practice registered in Victoria in 2004.
Tarlochan has a passion for quality care and small animal surgery and has a strong focus on preventative care. Tarlochan is the owner of a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel called Neo, who loves to go for walks in the park. Neo tries to chase the ducks, but fortunately he is not clever enough to catch them.
Jeet has been working with EBAC since 2012 as veterinary nurse, surgery nurse and receptionist. Jeet was previously teaching for many years, before adopting a new profession in veterinary nursing. Her enthusiasm, patience, and gentle handling of all our patients make her a great addition to our team. Jeet spends her free time with her dog Neo adopted from Keysborough Animal Shelter (Australian Animal Protection Society).
Whitney is a trainee veterinary nurse with East Bentleigh Animal Care and has been with us since 2014. Her favourite work experiences so far are helping out new owners with their new puppy or kitten, finding homes for adoption cats and kittens and working in the surgery.
Whitney has always wanted to do something for animals since she was little and had dreamed about working in a vet clinic. Now she’s living her dream with two adopted cats at home by her side.
Shelley is a trainee veterinary nurse at East Bentleigh Animal Care. Shelley joined the team in 2016. Working with animals has always been a big part of her life, rescuing countless critters. Now working in surgery and caring for animals in hospital, Shelley has finally found her happy place.
At home there are countless foster cats, two foster fails, Pud the fat Tabby and Marjorie the lady Siamese and of course Pip the Old Dog.
My qualifications are … I am a biologist, but I arrived in Australia from Brazil in 2012 with 1 husband, 2 bags and no job! My “wonderful ” husband is an engineer, but as “wonderful” as he is, I still needed a job. I decided on a new career for me in the new country. Thus, because I am a dog person, I decided to pursue my passion and trained as a groomer. “I am a dog groomer and I love my job”…
