Dr. Donovan Robson


I didn’t always know that I wanted to be a veterinarian, but I did always know that I was fascinated by animals. Growing up, this fascination manifested itself as hours of watching animal documentaries, finding any excuse to get closer to any animal I came across and of course begging my parents to buy me every pet I laid my eyes upon. I wasn’t sure what career this passion would lead me toward, but I was always hoping it would be one that animals would be a part of.

​I completed my undergraduate degree with a major in Biology at York University in Toronto. Over the course of my degree, I debated several career paths but I found that I kept coming back to veterinary science. It seemed to be the perfect intersection of my interest in biology and my passion for animals.

​I had always been interested in the idea of living abroad and decided to make this happen after finishing my undergraduate degree. I applied to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Melbourne and was delighted when they offered me a position within their program. During my time in Australia, I met some of my closest friends, created a second home and found a deep appreciation for the enormous discipline of veterinary medicine. After I graduated from the University of Melbourne,
I returned home to Toronto to work in a small animal practice, as that was the area of veterinary science that I was drawn to most during my time in the DVM program. I am so happy to have joined the Sherbourne Animal Hospital, and I look forward to developing my career within the practice.

​Outside of work, I spend my free time making music enjoying time with my friends and family and hanging out with my rescue dog, Otis.
