Dr. Brown started his ventures in veterinary medicine by joining Dr. Gillespie at his practice in Brownstown, IN in May of 2000 after graduating from vet school at Purdue University. It was during this time that he decided to become a practice owner. In 2001 Dr. Brown purchased the clinic and married soon-to-be-veterinarian Kim Brown. They settled next to the clinic in Brownstown, while Kim was finishing vet school. In 2003, he merged the practice with Brownstown Animal Hospital. It was this same year that Dr. Kim Brown joined the practice when she graduated from vet school at Purdue. In order to expand the practice to accommodate their growing number of veterinarians, Dr. Brown and his partners bought Jackson County Animal Clinic in 2003 and moved it to its current location on highway 31 in Seymour, IN in 2004. Dr. Bonny Vogel joined the practice in 2010. Dr. Klent and Kim purchased and became the sole owners of the Jackson County Animal Clinic in Seymour in June of 2011. The decision to extend hours at the Seymour location and stay open until 10 pm Monday through Saturday was made in the fall of 2012. This was done to help cover emergencies and give their clients new options for appointments for their pets. Dr. Deanna Baker joined the practice in 2013 to help cover the extended hours and accommodate the growing number of clients.
Animal Hospital of Bedford was started by Dr. Brown and his partners in 2005 on 16th St. in Bedford. This Practice continued to grow with both Klent and Kim as the primary doctors. The Browns then became the sole owners of the practice in 2011. In the Spring of 2012 Klent and Kim purchased Stonebrook Animal Hospital in Bedford and merged the 2 locations at the original clinic on 16th St. Dr. Rachel Proffitt joined the practice in 2014 and is continuing the traditions of quality patient care and client education.
In 2007 Dr. Brown and his partner purchased St. Clair veterinary clinic in Scottsburg. Dr. Lora Tucker joined the practice in 2010 to help accommodate the growing clientele. Dr. Brown and Kim then decided to purchase the Scottsburg clinic and become the sole owners of the practices in 2011. Since then, Dr. Regan Greene has joined the practice in 2013.
Dr. Cheryl Bauman was hired at the beginning of 2015 to give additional veterinary support at both the St. Clair and Jackson County Clinics. Dr. Klent Brown no longer owns the Brownstown location and sees patients at all 3 clinics on a part-time basis while devoting the majority of his time to team training and management at all 3 locations. The 3 clinics are run as separate locations, but all 8 of the veterinarians and 22 support staff work together to provide quality service, compassion, and up-to-date medicine and surgery. Dr. Brown’s goal has always been to provide quality service for a competitive price, while trying to continuously improve the care and medicine at each location. Dr. Brown feels that good medicine, quality service, with strong staff and client education are the keys to success.
