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.
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, 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.
Virginia Tech - 1992
Dr. Bergeron's parents knew they were in trouble when their little girl's fascination with horses just got stronger by the year. After carefully saving her babysitting money, her parents finally conceded to a request for a golden retriever. It was smaller than a horse but bigger than a poodle! She was fortunate to choose neighbor Dr. Mike Anthony as the veterinarian for her beloved pup Brandy. Determined to pursue a career in veterinary medicine, Dr. Bergeron began volunteering, working in the kennels and as an assistant while observing all facets of veterinary medicine from lifelong mentors and role models Drs. Anthony and Crawford.
Dr. Bergeron studied Animal Science at Virginia Tech and went on to receive her DVM from Virginia-Maryland Regional Veterinary School at Blacksburg in 1992. She came back to work at both Swift Creek and Stonehenge Veterinary Hospitals for nine years before going on to experience other styles of private practice from rural to emergency. She is thrilled to be back at Stonehenge where she can practice in a style that promotes the value of pets as members of our family.
In her spare time, she enjoys the many projects necessary to maintain an old house and hobby farm which includes (finally!) 2 horses, 2 goats and various chickens and a very energetic Australian Shepherd named Hannah. She is an enthusiastic trail rider and gardener and loves traveling near and far with her family.
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.
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 now has two babies of her own, Claire and May, so the Cosby's are now proud grandparents. Slideshow always available by request!
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 small mammals and reptiles 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 two sons, Noah and Samuel, as well as her own furry "kids", Leo and Rosie (the cats).
