Our History

Located in historic Amherstburg Ontario, Fort Malden Animal Hospital was established in May of 1981 by Drs. Westgarth and Poitras.  After building a successful practice, the duo decided to enjoy retirement and sold the practice to Dr. Watkin.  When the opportunity arose in 2014, Dr. Beth Cozens purchased the practice- fulfilling her dream of owning a veterinary clinic in her hometown.  Dr. Kim Quinn became a co-owner of Fort Malden Animal Hospital in May of 2021. 


From humble beginnings with only 3 staff members (including our current practice Manager Kathy Lucier) our clinic has grown into a close-knit team of 14 veterinary staff.  The current owners, Dr. Cozens and Dr. Quinn, have continued to update and evolve Fort Malden into the place you know and trust today.  We take pride in our history and future providing care for the pets of our small town!
