Dr Alexandra Hynes

BVSc (Hons) MVS MANZCVS (Emergency & Critical Care)

AES Director

Dr Alex 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 to represent QLD in the new Bondi Vet series.

After graduating from the University of Queensland Alex worked for several years in mixed practice, 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. Alex’s 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 AES and started working at the company,  eventually obtaining the position of Veterinary Manager of the Underwood hospital. Most recently, Alex has stepped aside from her role as Director to focus on her vision of sharing the incredible stories that AES encounters on a daily basis.
