Dr. Tarlochan Singh Your Friendly Local Vet

Head Veterinarian and Surgeon
Tarlochan is your friendly local vet at our East Bentleigh vet clinicDr. Tarlochan Singh graduated from the Queensland University Veterinary School in 1999. After working with small animals in Melbourne and Canada, he established our East Bentleigh vet clinic as a single vet practice registered in Victoria in 2004.  That’s how East Bentleigh Animal Care was born.

Tarlochan has a passion for quality care and small animal surgery and has a strong focus on preventative care. Dr Tarlochan’s vision was to create a friendly local vet centre – a caring environment where clients and patients are treated with equal love and 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.
