Accredited Veterinary Hospital of Excellence

Why is important for you and your pet?

  1. Accredited hospital must meet the highest standards in:

    • Patient Care

    • Providing the highest quality equipment and facilities for patients

    • Practice updated medicine and surgery – all veterinary surgeons and nurses
      regularly upgrade their skills and knowledge through continuing education

  2. There are only 12 veterinary clinics in Victoria that meet these standards

  3. Our hospital is independently assessed by Veterinary Specialists from all over Australia, selected by the ASAVA

  4. Assessment is done every 4 years and is a rigorous process to ensure each hospital has maintained extremely high standards in all aspects. The facilities, equipment, surgery and medical skills, protocols, continuing education, x-ray quality, record keeping and case management.


Welcome to Balwyn Central, servicing the regions of Box Hill, Balwyn, Canterbury, North Balwyn, Surrey Hills and Mont Albert.

We provide the best care and personalised service for your pet in a caring and compassionate environment.

Balwyn Central Vet, formerly Box Hill Veterinary Hospital is among the leading veterinary hospitals in Victoria and we have been servicing the community for over 25 years.


We take great pride in our Hospital of Excellence status as it is what we are. We treat your pet as if your pet was ours. We would not be in this profession if we were not able to give the best of care to our patients. We are all animal lovers and community welfare work is what we do on the side (bushfire wildlife rescue, volunteer work overseas in China and Bali).


Our hospital has the best in modern facilities:

  • Separate and spacious dog and cat waiting areas (for our kitty patients that are concerned about having strange dogs close to them)

  • Separate cat and dog wards

  • State of the art digital x-ray facility

  • Modern anaesthetic monitoring equipment

  • Separate sterile operating theatre and another non sterile surgery area

  • State of the art dental equipment


Our staff are all long term staff. The highly skilled nursing staff have been working at the clinic from between 6 to 20 years. They are the nurturers and carers. They pamper your pet while they are in our charge. The veterinary surgeons all have between 10 to 30 years’ experience and your pet's wellbeing is our number one priority.

Our philosophy is to provide the best and updated veterinary medicine and surgery in a caring and compassionate environment.
