Dr Cozens was raised in both the south-west of England and Nepal and pursued his passion for animal care from a young age. He was accepted and trained at the University of Cambridge, where he gained an outstanding veterinary education and particularly excelled in the fields of small animal medicine and surgery for which he was awarded a special merit upon graduation. Whilst at Cambridge Harry enjoyed all that the University had to offer and emerged as a consistent leader including captaining the University Rugby League team and being awarded a ‘Cambridge Blue’.
Upon graduation Harry moved to Canada pursuing adventure and the opportunity to grow professionally. He joined a busy practice in Lethbridge, Alberta with a strong focus on emergency and on-call medicine in which he thrived. He was promoted to medical director of the small animal division and spent some years training up veterinarians, managing a team and improving the service and quality of veterinary medicine within the clinic. After starting a family Harry moved to a second clinic in Lethbridge and has continued to hone his clinical skills and nurture an increasing passion for veterinary surgery with a growing focus on orthopaedic interventions.
In relocating to Vancouver Harry comes strongly equipped to lead the team and continue to pursue excellence in veterinary care. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience suited to his role and is passionate about his team’s culture and abilities. He loves to teach and treats each interaction with staff, clients and pets with great care and intentionality.
Harry brings with him his wife and daughter, with a new baby on the way. They are all very excited to settle here and are thrilled to be exploring all that BC has to offer. Outside of the hospital Harry, often with his daughter in tow, can be found enjoying the mountains whether hiking, running, snowboarding, snowshoeing or mountain biking. When not in the great outdoors he enjoys reading, great coffee and quality family time.
