Dr Alexandra Hynes is a director and senior clinician at Animal Emergency Service. Her passion for helping animals and talent in the field of emergency pet care has led to becoming one of the most well-known veterinarians in the country – recently taking on the role as one of the new Bondi Vets on the all-new series airing on Channel nine – Bondi Vet Coast To Coast.

After graduating from the University of Queensland, Hynes worked in rural practice looking after both large and small animals, before relocating to the UK for five years. While there she gained a Certificate in Small Animal Surgery through the European School of Veterinary Studies. Hynes’ interest in emergency and critical care was sparked after she accepted a position at an after-hours practice in the UK. Upon returning to Australia in 2007 she was inspired by the vision of the founding partners of Animal Emergency Service and started working as a junior veterinarian at the company.  Between 2012 and 2018, Hynes became the Veterinary Manager of the Underwood hospital and played an integral part in developing the extraordinary team culture for which AES is renowned. She also held the position of Hospital Director from 2015 to 2019- a role she recently stepped down from in order to fulfill her media commitments.

In her current role on the Animal Emergency Australia executive team, Hynes is dedicated to strengthening the relationship between veterinary colleagues, clients and the business ensuring they receive the best experience possible. Hynes was awarded Master of Veterinary Studies through Murdoch University in 2011 and obtained Membership to the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in the Chapter of Emergency and Critical Care in 2014.
