Dr. Shannon joined The Dog Clinic team in 2016, having moved to Hobart following three years working in a busy small animal practice in Melbourne. Originally hailing from sunny Brisbane, she graduated in Veterinary Science from the University of Queensland in 2004 with Honors and began her working life as a dairy cow vet in the colder climate of Warrnambool in Southern Victoria.
Shannon has managed to travel widely with her career, working in various veterinary clinics across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom over the last eleven years. She has centered her practice solely in the area of small animals over the last six years and has relished the opportunity to further focus her veterinary care on dogs at Australia’s first canine-only veterinary clinic.
Shannon is joined in Hobart by her partner and two young children. In her spare time she enjoys cooking, gardening, camping and hiking and she tries to get away as much as possible to explore Tasmanias’ beautiful outdoors.
Shannon is looking forward to meeting you and your canine family members at The Dog Clinic soon!

Dr. Hannah Robinson Veterinary Surgeon, BVSc.
Dr Hannah joined The Dog Clinic team in 2018.
Dr Hannah studied Veterinary Science at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga, her first job was in a mixed rural practice in NSW. She and her husband then moved to Hobart and worked for the following five years at the After Hours Veterinary Emergency Centre.
After having her first child she decided to come back to general practice and pursue her love of dogs. Dr Hannah is particularly passionate about soft tissue surgery and caring for ageing patients.
Hannah has a lovely black Labrador named Ella that she adopted from the local pound when she was at university. Ella has travelled all over the country with her and has loved the move to Tasmania as much as Dr. Hannah!
In her spare time Hannah likes to spend time with her family (and Ella of course), and loves getting out in the beautiful Tasmanian wilderness.
Dr Hannah looks forward to meeting you and your furry family members at The Dog Clinic.
