History of Kirkwood Animal Hospital

Since 1971, Kirkwood Animal Hospital has served Kirkwood, Missouri, and surrounding communities as a full-service veterinarian treatment clinic.


Our History

Dr. Bendick founded Kirkwood Animal Hospital in 1971 and remained the owner until his passing in October 2018. He poured his heart and soul into this practice, staying active in its management until the very end. It was his desire that we, the doctors and staff, continue to serve you, our clients, and our community. The practice continues to be family run by his four children Matt, Brian, Katy, and Elizabeth (Lizzy).
