 Our Story

Kingsbury Animal Hospital, St. Louis Veterinarian, About Us

Kingsbury Animal Hospital was established in 1978 when Dr. Steve Brammeier turned an abandoned Shell service station into his companion animal practice. Since then the doctors and staff of Kingsbury have provided veterinary and grooming services to the pets of the city of St. Louis and surrounding communities. With the help of architect Tom Cohen, Dr. Brammeier realized his professional dream of practicing in a purpose built, state of the art facility, when a building remodel was completed in 2004. The new facility was designed for efficiency in delivering veterinary medical services, but also creating a pleasant space for both the patients and their owners. In 2009 Dr. Bret Shaw join the practice hoping to one day have the opportunity to own the practice. That day finally came in the summer of 2014 as Dr. Brammeier was approaching retirement. By the summer of 2015 Dr. Brammeier had retired. Dr.Shaw continue to work to improve our facility and client care making Kingsbury feel like a family.

Please check out our doctor and staff bios to find out more about our family. We offer a unique, sensitive approach to pet health care. We take the time to listen carefully to our clients, and then make sure we are not moving too fast with the pets to avoid frightening them, or pushing them beyond their  limits. We mostly work on the floor. When we do use an exam table, it is covered in a synthetic sheep skin mat. We welcome questions about our approach to veterinary medical care. Please send us an email, or come by for a visit and tour of our building. We always enjoy meeting new people and the pets that share their lives.
