Welcome to Hobart

Nestled just 15 minutes drive from Hobart, you’ll find our Animal Emergency Service Hobart hospital – the only dedicated 24 hours veterinary emergency hospital in Tasmania. If rolling mountain hills and beautiful picturesque scenery are your thing, working at this location and exploring the beautiful surrounds of Hobart is the perfect choice for you!

Become a tourist and take a day tour of Bruny Island. View the southernmost lighthouse in Australia, taste a banquet of delicious gourmet food and enjoy some sightseeing and great walks. If that’s not your thing, cruise on the Derwent River and enjoy waterfront attractions such as the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens and Rose Bay. Best of all, take a wander around one of many markets, where you’ll find handcrafted delights and artisan delicacies.

But enough about the location – we know we don’t have to persuade you to come and live in arguably one of Australia’s most liveable (and beautiful) cities! Let’s talk about the team.

Located in Moonah, in our hospital you’ll find some of the most dedicated and passionate pet-people you’ve ever met. Together, directors Drs Vibeke Russell and Lisa Reynolds have created a unique workplace focused on career growth and development, training and education, and most of all, a place you can call your second home.

After all, work is where we spend most of our time second to our family lives – so the team have built a place that truly values each individual team member and is home for their veterinary careers.

Don’t just take our word for it though! Our team members have been known to describe their team mates as people who have a genuine love and passion for animals and their care. Who are down to earth, and always have each other’s best interests at heart to grow and be better at what they do.
