services

We offer comprehensive veterinary and pet care services for dogs and cats. We focus on preventative medicine, but are also equipped for anything life throws at you. From birth through the golden years and everything in between, let us become your trusted partner in everything pet related. Together we’ll work hard to give your cherished companion a long, healthy and happy life.


Wellness & Vaccinations
Routine wellness care can add years to your companion’s life and improve the quality of those years exponentially. We offer complete wellness services through every life stage; from vaccinations and parasite control, to health screenings, nutrition and weight management. We want to work with you to help your pet enjoy as many happy, healthy years as possible.

Allergies & Dermatology
Companion animals can suffer from many of the same dermatological conditions as humans. Our doctors are trained and experienced in identifying, diagnosing and treating a broad range of dermatological problems. We can have your pet living a more comfortable life in no time!

Nutrition Management
The right diet and a healthy weight can extend and improve the quality of life for your pet. Unfortunately, not all of the dozens of options in pet foods meet his or her nutritional needs.  We offer professional pet nutritional counseling and weight management services to help bring out the very best in your four-legged friend.

Laser Therapy
Laser therapy has been used in human medicine for decades, and now this same powerful technology is available to help our animal companions live happier, more comfortable lives by reducing pain, improving mobility and speeding healing following surgery or injury.

Dentistry
Without the proper care and attention, your dog or cat’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can lead to bad breath, tooth loss, or even dental diseases. We are experienced in preventative care as well as the treatment and management of existing oral health problems. We’ll work with you to show you what you can do at home to support a lifetime of good oral health for your pet.

Diagnostics
Sometimes we need a way to look below the surface and learn what’s happening inside your pet's body before we can reach a definitive diagnosis. We utilize a broad spectrum of diagnostic tools such as blood work, urinalysis, x-ray and ultrasound imaging. This allows us to more accurately identify what is ailing your companion so we can manage the issue in the most effective way possible.

Surgery
We have a team of highly skilled veterinary professionals who are prepared to assist with all of your pet’s surgical care needs. We offer an extensive range of surgical services, from routine spays and neuters to complex orthopedic and ophthalmic procedures, all of which are performed in our state of the art surgical suite using the most up to date equipment and techniques. Rest assured that when it comes to surgery, your pet’s safety and your peace of mind are our highest priority.

Grooming
We also offer professional grooming services. Our groomers can have your companion feeling as good on the outside as they are on the inside! Let us become your one-stop-shop for everything animal related!

Boarding
Our goal is to provide for all of your pet care needs under one roof so you’ll never have the need to go anywhere else. To that end, we are happy to offer full service boarding as part of our comprehensive list of pet care services. Let us care for your pet the next time you leave town.

Dr. Kathleen Ford
Veterinarian, Owner


Dr. Ford was raised in Farmington, Utah, where she grew up with all sorts of animals, ranging from cattle, horses, hamsters, chickens, cats, and dogs! She always wanted to help the animals she cared for so much as a child, and now she gets to do just that as a full-time Veterinarian and the Owner of Quail Pointe Veterinary Hospital.
Kathy graduated from Weber State University with a Bachelor’s in Medical Technology and minors in Microbiology and Chemistry.

As a veterinarian, Dr. Ford likes challenging cases involving dermatology, reproduction, and endocrinology. She has two pets of her own at home: Denny, a Bullmastiff who is very polite, and Beans, a French Bulldog who acts like he wants to give you a kiss, then sneezes in your face!
In her spare time, Kathy likes cooking, reading, collecting antiques, participating in dog shows, and traveling with her two furry companions.

Kelly wanted to join the veterinary profession to learn everything she could about animals. She also wanted a career she could love, not just tolerate! Now she gets to be involved with pets and their owners every day as the Practice Manager.
Kelly grew up all over the United States because her father was in the Air Force. In 1989, he retired to Utah, which became Kelly’s home. Her veterinary career began when she volunteered at an animal clinic at 14 years of age. She ended up working full-time there throughout high school and college before coming to Utah and joining the team at Quail Pointe. She became a technician, then a receptionist, then Office Manager before becoming the Practice Manager in 2009.
Kelly’s favorite part of her job is discussing breeding and reproduction with clients, as well as delivering puppies or assisting with births.

Chris Moellendorf

Chris was interested in the animal field since the 9th grade. She always felt a connection to animals and wanted to understand what they try to communicate. She’s been working in the field since 1990, and currently works as a Veterinary Technician at Quail Pointe. Born and raised in Brigham, Utah, Chris’s veterinary career started at an Animal Hospital in 1990, where she worked as a kennel tech and became a vet tech until moving to another hospital in 1995.

She’s also recently become interested in repairing and refinishing old furniture.

Jennifer Sims
Pet Stylist

Jennifer’s father works as a veterinarian, so she has been exposed to the veterinary field ever since she was young. As soon as she was able, she began volunteering at her dad’s clinic and was immediately hooked. Now, Jennifer gets to care for pets every day as a professional Pet Stylist!
Jennifer is from Bountiful, Utah, and is the second oldest of six children. She first became interested in pet styling while assisting the groomers at her father’s veterinary clinic—she learned on the job, and hasn’t stopped grooming since. Jennifer has been a Pet Stylist for over 20 years now and loves every minute of it! She’s particularly fond of pampering pets, performing scissor cuts, and witnessing owners see their freshly groomed pets for the first time.
Jennifer has many pets of her own at home. Her fur family consists of six dogs—Fiona, Emmy, Jewel, Ollie, Carter, and Bailey—as well as two cats, a chinchilla named Sophie, and a 30-year-old Amazon parrot who goes by Guido. Four of her dogs are former American Kennel Club show dogs, and one of her poodles even became an AKC Champion.
In her free time, Jennifer enjoys spending time with family and friends, attending dog shows, making crafts, reading, watching movies, and completing do-it-yourself projects. Last year, she remodeled the interior of her home nearly all by herself!

Kristen Freeman

Kristen grew up in Layton, Utah, where pet care was a natural part of life from her earliest memories. She can’t remember a time when she didn’t want to do everything she possibly could to better the lives of animals!

She’s particularly fond of doting on kittens visiting the hospital, and she continues to learn something new on a daily basis.
In her time away from work, Kristen can be found scrapbooking, fishing, and watching movies with her family. She lives in Clearfield with her boyfriend, her daughter, and three loveable pets: Satan the Pit Bull; a cat named Mystery; and a bird who goes by Nibbles.
