I am 51 years old and Brenford and Dr.Hammer have been my veterinarians since I was a child.

Dr. Craig A. Stonesifer, the doctor that someone claimed must not like dogs due to how he treated theirs, is a dog person. He only has dog's in his private life. He's a stern type doctor but he's incredibly knowledgeable and trustworthy.
One can not judge this doctor because he wouldn't let the commentator here to go back with her dog who was to have surgery.
The back part of the hospital, beyond the patient treatment rooms, is open and with surgery theaters that would be visible to a patient who enters there. It's not meant for patients to be there because the surgeries are private as are the goings on with animals that may be in the back getting treatment.
That can be upsetting to human patients and it can present a problem with dog's walking about who aren't there for a particular procedure. The kennel area is just that and is not meant for sit down human guests either. And because there can be any number of animals in other kennels and it can be upsetting to them to have a stranger around.

Dr. Greg Hammer, my vet of choice, in 2003 was bestowed the honor of becoming President of the AVMA, (American Veterinary Medical Association )
No small feat.
If you love your animals take them to Brenford Animal Hospital north or their south location. You'll not regret it and your pet will be in the finest care without the facility milking you for unnecessary procedures. And they even allow you to pay with a check dated on the day that they'll hold for you for two weeks in the event you don't have the cash right then. In this economy that is a god send.

I'll start by saying on March 26 2011 we took our dog here, he needed 24 teeth removed. Before you remove something suggestion (XRAY) after that mu dog was not the same. As of this past week his gums were still bleeding. Also he was released and sent home with a creatine level of 38 I have been researching alot. Yesterday he came back because he was in much pain, as the so called experts we relyed on you to give us the advise that we seeked, it was not given. There was an xray finally done yesterday to learn he had a tumor and there was nothing left but to take him out of his pain. We will be seeking legal advise. If you love your pet get a second option....After seeking other medical advise this hospital allowed our dog to be released with liver failure and kidney failure without notifing us. If it was up to me I would have them shut down.

I have dealt with Brenford for over 30 years since I was a child. I could not ask for a better set of physicians especially DR. Hammer. Most recently I had to put my 13 year old dog Peaches down due to some health problems. They staff was not only compassionate at the office but sent us a card signed by the staff members. Things like that mean the most and I'm so greatful Brenford is so caring.

I've been with Brenford for 10 years after having been to other vets in the area. I think they are wonderful. We usually see Dr. Hammer, but have also seen Dr. Stonefeister and Dr. Booth. All of them are great. 2 of our dogs have a severe hereditary blood disorder, Dr. Booth did incredible research to find a treatment (it is incurable). Dr. Stonefeister, upon hearing that we have kept these dogs alive many years past expectations asked if we could give another dog with the same disorder a home as the owner was giving her up or putting her to sleep. So the claims of him being uncompassionate I feel are inaccurate and knee jerk reactionary. I have found him to be a very caring and decent man, once staying quite late to see one of our dogs who had become quite ill. I highly recommend Brenford to anyone with pets.

After a horrible experience with another vet we found Dr Hammer. What a blessing!! Although our dog would've been terrified to see any vet at this time, it took only seconds for Dr Hammer to make him feel comfortable and secure. He did a great job of making mom (me) and dad feel confident in him also. He corrected problems caused by previous vet, assured us all would be handled competently because he was so dedicated and gained 5 new buddies. Mom, dad and our 3 puppies. We'll be bringing him every critter we ever come across again. Dr Hammer calmed our dog's fears, is trustworthy, has a great bedside manner, is dedicated, friendly and very funny. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thanks so much. Gizmo's mommy!!

I think that some of you are missing the point entirely. I have been to a lot of vets in different parts of the country. If you want to be coddled, do not see Dr Stonesifer. HOWEVER, if you want a skilled diagnostician and surgeon, then Dr S is your man. We have gone to Brenford for ten years with a variety of pets and the staff has been wonderful overall. I doubt very much that all of you are of perfect behavior all the time. All of the vets that we have seen there have been great.

My husband john and I have had a Terrible experience at brenford animal hospital these last three weeks.we brought our 5yr. Old boxer in as an emergency on Monday March 22,2010 because my boxer was attached by another dog. Two different vets. Told us that our dog had no internal injuries, we requested x rays and blood work to guarantee us he would be fine, both docs. Said not necessary, cause our dog would be fine. Our dog passed away of internal injuries .......um sounds like if we had the medical attention we requested, our baby boy would still be with us. On April 2,2010 we went back to brenford animal hospital to retrieve our dogs ashes. Brenford charged us without making us aware of the fees prior to cremation.......we will be contacting an attorney for mal practice and neglegence...I do not recommend brenford animal hospital to any pet owner, even tho my husband and myself have used their services for years.I have even asked for my pets medical histories prior to ending our relationship and I was told they will be hand written and mailed to me. At this point brenford animal hospital needs a medical review in our oppinion

We have taken our animals to Brenford for a couple of years since moving to Kent Co. and we have been very satisfied with the staff. They were very caring when we lost one of our dogs and it was Dr. Stonesifer who was the attending. He may have been direct but there was a sadness in his eyes when I got there to say goodbye to our dog. He also attended to one of our cats within that same week (we thought she may die also) and he was so kind and gentle not only with Lucy but with me also. Doctors have to be direct and say things that we may not want to hear, but deep down they are hurting just as we do. You try to tell someone that their family member is going to die and that they are suffering.....it is hard. The staff at Brenford are GREAT! We will continue to take our animals there.

Just to let other know I live near this clinic and several of the staff came to my home to let me know what happen and ask if I saw the dog to please let them know. They were very concern and I talked to them daily. I know the dog has now been found safe Emily B

Do not go to Brenford Animal Hospital. They do not have a safe area for the animals to urinate after surgery and while taking my sister-in-law's dog out for a walk, they allowed him to run away. They have shown very little remorse for this tragic event.

Dr. Giebel saw and cared for my 17 year old kitty, Phoebe, when she developed a tumor a few months ago. Unfortunately, we just lost our beloved pet. But I cannot say enough about how much care and compassion Dr. Giebel and the staff showed us during this difficult experience. They even sent us a lovely card and flower which truly touched our hearts. We would highly recommend Brenford.

We have been very pleased with the care, knowledge and compassion we have received when we take our animals to Brenford.
A little over a year ago, we lost our 16 year old JRT. The staff was extremely sympathetic and kind during this difficult time for us.

I just got off the phone with one of the receptionists as we are bringing a puppy into our home and wanted Brenford to begin looking after her.

This practice is equally good with both cats and dogs (our only pets) and I would highly recommend them-we drive from Middletown and it is well worth the trip.

I have nothing but good things to say about everyone at this hospital, including Dr. Stonesifer!! My dogs were treated with love and care. One of my dogs ended up losing her eye and Dr. Stonesifer couldn't have been more kind and compasionate. Dr. Jackson and Dr. Booth are also wonderful Drs. When you needed some information or to contact any of these doctors they were always there to help and answer questions.

I agree with some of the comments about Dr. Stoneseifer...please schedule with someone else at thier office! Their staff is wonderful and with the new office opening they are even more accessible. Drs. Booth and Usselman are the BEST vets I have ever encountered! I have been taking my pets to Brenford since 1989 and while I have lived in other areas from 1990-1999 I always brought my pets to Brenford (even all the way from Watertown, NY). I had local vets in those areas, but no one can compare with Brenford! When one of our dogs was killed in a freak accident the Emergency Vet notified Brenford. The staff all signed a card and had a carnation delivered to me in her memory. They called to check to see how I was doing and if there was anything they could offer to do. LOVE THEM!

We took our Spanish Water Dog to Brenford for a C-section delivery of her puppies and received outstanding care. I would highly recommend this vet hospital to anyone and everyone. We received follow-up telephone calls to check on her and the puppies and they were very quick to answer any questions or concerns we had before and after the delivery. They should us that they truly care about their patients.

The male vet, Dr. Stoneifer definitely has an attitude problem. But I do have to say that I have had nothing but a great experience with everyone else and they have taken great care of my dog. They always get my dog in as soon as they can and they do give my dog the best care. Dr. Stoneifer has talked to me like I was irresponsible and was rude. I would recommend seeing any vet there except for him.

I took my dog Duke to get neutered at this vet. Dr.Stonesifer was the vet that was going to perform the surgery. He was so mean that I was crying by the time I left. He told me that my dog was lifting his leg and peeing on things because I allowed him to and that he was going to be kept in a cage until his surgery and that I could not stay with him until he went back. I felt that he was taking pride in seeing me upset. I'm not even sure he likes animals. GO Somewhere else, anywhere else. I will never return!
