Our Team

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. She graduated in 1988 from Colorado State University with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. Her first job was in Farmington with Dr. White, where she stayed for the first seven years of her career. After working in Ogden and North Salt Lake, she opened up her own practice after 14 years of veterinary work, Quail Pointe Veterinary Hospital! In 1999, Dr. Ford was elected the first female President of the Utah Veterinary Medical Association.

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.
Dr. Madsen
Dr. Madsen was born and raised in Payson, Utah, where from an early age he had an interest in the welfare of animals. He was often found tending to the sick and injured ones which he occasionally hid in his parent’s home. (Sorry, Mom!)

Dr. Madsen’s undergraduate studies were completed at Snow College, Utah Valley University, and Brigham Young University. He earned his veterinary degree from Iowa State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2012 and during his training explored a broad range of interests including communicable disease research and zoo medicine but has chosen to work exclusively on companion animals with a focus in soft tissue surgery and wound healing, and a strong interest in anatomic pathology.

Dr. Madsen currently resides in Lehi, Utah with his wife Amy, their three adopted girls, three cats, and the family dog. He is an accomplished violinist, has appeared in several community theater productions, and enjoys camping, fishing, hiking, shooting, and lampwork (working with molten glass.)
