Welcome to Central Veterinary Clinic & Hospital – Tarneit


Welcome to Central Veterinary Clinic & Hospital, Tarneit, your ‘vet near me’. We are the first independently owned veterinary clinic in Tarneit. We are a fully functioning, highly equipped, state-of-the-art clinic, offering dedicated GP services as well as emergency after-hours consultations weeknights and weekends. Our vets are highly skilled and experienced in both medicine and surgery. Our mission is to provide excellent, empathetic, compassionate veterinary care. We aim for a thorough work-up and treatment, to exceptionally high standards. We treat both small and large animals. We also conduct peaceful home euthanasia. Our subsidiary, Tarneit Mobile Vet, has operated a home visit service for the past 2 years. We understand that pets are part of the family. We are in the business of helping you help your fur babies live their happiest, healthiest lives.

We offer everything a GP clinic has to offer: vaccinations and preventative care, microchipping, nail clipping, health checks, nutrition advice, dental checks, worm, flea, and tick control, anal gland expression, and more.

Central Veterinary Clinic & Hospital is located at 4 Poplar Boulevard, in Tarneit. This is on Derrimut Road, just down from Tarneit train station and opposite Baden Powell Reserve.


Central Veterinary Clinic & Hospital is open 7 days a week. Standard GP consults weekdays 9 am until 6 pm. To serve a gap in emergency afterhours care, after 6 pm weekdays and on weekends we convert to an emergency clinic. This means we don’t preschedule appointments, so we have time to attend to patients who need emergency medical care when other vet clinics are closed.

Monday – Friday8:00 am – 8:00 pm
Saturday & Sunday11:00 am – 10:00 pm

Dr Ebrahim was amazing took us in after another vet had us waiting for hours and said another 4 hours while our dog was in pain. You treated her like a superstar and she actually tried to give him a kiss which she doesn’t do to vets, even tho she was in alot of pain.You have gained yourself 3 new furry clientsThanks so much for caring and loving animals not just a job for you.

Amazing vet! Dr Ebrahim saved Captain’s life by thoroughly examining him and taking him to surgery. I wouldn’t have my dog with me now if not for the dr’s decision and utmost care. Forever thank you!

Presented with a snake bite and motionless dog. These vets and nurses are something else. The care and devotion to their career and all animals that come through the door is phenomenal. I’ve never seen anyone work so hard. We honestly thought our boy was gone and he wouldn’t be able to recover. Dr Meridith and her entire team were just amazing. After days and nights of continuous care my boy is home. Long road to recovery but he’s alive! For the amount of care, medication and testing that was done I was floored by the price, completely reasonable and actually much less than I thought the total would be. Thankyou all so very much. I’m glad you’re here! With all of our love and gratitude, we thank you ♥️

Our sincere gratitude goes out to Dr Ebrahim and Dr Meredith for saving our poor boy Beethoven! You both are the silent champions that deserve all the thanks for all the love and devotion you put into your work.Poor Beethoven had a full obstruction and was going downhill fast. Despite having no staff on board Dr Ebrahim was juggling 1000 plates trying to attend to everything! You really had to be there to witness everything. On top of that the mess that Beethoven was making (so so sorry). Dr Meredith performed the procedure and extracted the foreign object. Thank you for the hours and devotion you put into Beethoven!Once again on behalf of all species great and small they send you their silent thanks!
