About Vitality Vetcare

Dr Megan Kearney

Owner & Veterinary Surgeon 117A0224

Dr Megan Kearney opened Vitality Vetcare in November 2010. This was the manifestation of a long-held dream to open an integrative veterinary hospital where animals would receive compassionate holistic veterinary care in a beautiful and welcoming environment. Giving back to the animal kingdom was the reason Megan became a vet and continues to fuel her passion for compassionate holistic veterinary care.

Dr Megan Kearney received her BVSc from the University of Queensland in 1988. She worked in mixed practices in Alice Springs and Cootamundra until moving to the UK in 1992. She worked in mixed, equine, small animal and holistic practices in England and Wales until she started a holistic veterinary referral practice and an herbal practice for people in Yorkshire in 1999.

Megan developed an interest in integrative medicine through her own personal development and the demands of friends and clients. She became fascinated by plant medicines and was inspired to travel to the UK to acquire professional knowledge of these subjects. She studied herbal medicine at the College of Phtyotherapy, East Sussex and gained her Diploma of Herbal Medicine in 1998. She was the first veterinarian to become a Member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists in 1999. The NIMH is the oldest professional body of herbalists in the world.
