About Us

Home » About Us

Our clients often come to us feeling worried and sometimes overwhelmed by the possibility their pet has serious heart disease.

Our hope is that at the end of the cardiology consultation, our clients will feel more confident and informed about their pet’s future and less stressed knowing that they are giving their pet the best possible care.

Dr Brad Gavaghan and
Dr Fiona Meyers

Veterinary Cardiologists Australia was founded by two passionate cardiologists, Dr Brad Gavaghan and Dr Fiona Meyers; the first two veterinary cardiologists in Australia. 


Our philosophy is to always listen to your concerns about your pet’s health, and share our knowledge to accurately diagnose your pet’s heart disease. From there, we can  help you navigate through the complexity and uncertainty of heart disease.


With the experience we’ve gained from treating patients for a combined 35 years, we will discuss all medical and surgical options and will recommend a diet and exercise plan to help manage your pet’s heart disease.

Helping our clients give their best friend, their best life

With a plan, and the dedication you have for your pet,
we’ll all be able to improve their quality and length of life.

We want you to leave us feeling empowered to take control of your best friend’s lifestyle –
and rest assured you’ve done everything you can to help them.
