Stonehenge Veterinary Hospital is a full-service veterinary hospital in Richmond, Virginia providing compassionate care and progressive medicine to the pets and the good people they belong to since 1976.
To that end, everything we do is for the health and well being of our patients - and the good people they belong to. Drs. Michael Anthony and Glenn Crawford earned their DVM degrees at Ohio State University and opened Stonehenge Veterinary Hospital in Richmond, Virginia in 1976. In the early days of the practice, both Dr. Anthony and Dr. Crawford worked at several other facilities as they built the Stonehenge practice. Through their and the staff's commitment to the highest quality, compassionate care and a desire to build lifelong relationships with both pets and owners, the practice grew into one of Richmond's largest. In 1985, they opened a sister hospital, Swift Creek Animal Hospital, located in Midlothian, Virginia.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to Dr. Cosby for her genuine caring and loving of animals. The entire staff are friendly, caring & wonderful with the 'children' we take in! We will continue now with our little boy Gabe, also a Shih Tzu, with the knowledge that he will receive the best care available in the state.
Ohio State University - 1971
Having a Grandmother who owned a farm may be the reason a young Michael Anthony developed an affection for and interest in animals. In fact, in 7th grade, he wrote a paper for school about becoming a veterinarian. That early vision developed into a lifelong passion and career. During veterinary school, he treated his first patient - a massive boa constrictor – and quickly learned that a vet isn't really a vet until he's practiced, not just trained.
Dr. Anthony and friend/fellow Ohio State University alum Dr. Crawford opened Stonehenge Veterinary Hospital in 1976, each working at several other facilities as they began building their practice. Taking a compassionate, pragmatic approach, Dr. Anthony develops a lasting connection with pet owners and pets alike.
Through Stonehenge Veterinary Hospital and their sister clinic, Swiftcreek Animal Hospital, Dr. Anthony and the staff stay active in the community supporting school athletic programs and volunteering their talents and time to organizations who treat and rescue abandoned, neglected or injured animals.
When he's not working, you'll probably find Dr. Anthony outside - spending time with his wife, Karen, boating, fishing or working on a car, his Jack Russell never far from his side.
University of Georgia - 1983
Brenda Cosby was always drawn to animals as a child, watching and helping at the veterinary office in Petersburg where her grandmother was office manager. In the 1960's though, the thought that a girl could ever become a veterinarian was simply a dream.
Upon graduating with a journalism degree from VCU, Brenda married her college crush, Bill Cosby, and moved to Atlanta to take the publishing world by storm. When it became clear that her writing talents weren't going to make her America's next great author, she went back to her first love, animals.
It took another three years of remedial physics, organic chemistry, and animal science classes to convince The University of Georgia to accept her. By then, she and her husband had one-year-old Katie in tow. Late night study sessions and colicky babies didn't easily mix, and she thanks Bill for most of that early parenting.
After graduating from the University of Georgia in 1983, Brenda spent most of her senior year pregnant with son Will, who was kind enough to arrive three weeks late, after her final clinics. She also thanks Doctors Crawford and Anthony for their bravery as they hired her when she was seven months pregnant. She's been at Stonehenge Veterinary Hospital from that moment, loving it ever since.
In her spare time, Dr. Cosby cooks, gardens, and tries to work out enough to ski in Utah one week a year. Daughter Kate will have her own baby, Claire, this summer so Dr. Cosby and husband Bill will be proud grandparents, watching the cycle of life begin again!
Virginia Tech - 2004
When Dr. Smith first considered veterinary medicine, it was wildlife and zoo animals that attracted her. It was when working as an assistant in preparation for vet school that she discovered a preference for private practice. Her love of the bond between pets and their people made her pursue this career.
Dr. Smith received her BA from UVA, and her DVM from Virginia Tech, joining Stonehenge after graduation in 2004. In keeping with her initial wildlife and exotic interests, she sees ferrets, rabbits, and other small mammals in addition to her canine and feline patients. In her downtime, she enjoys movies, books, hiking, and especially spending time with her husband, Bryan, and son, Noah, as well as her own furry "kids", Leo and Rosie the cats, and Floppy the 3-legged bunny.
