Paula Brown, DVM

After working as an associate veterinarian at Rose Animal Clinic since 2008, Dr. Brown transferred to the Animal Hospital of Bentonville in 2020 to continue providing veterinary medicine in the Bentonville area. A native of Alma, she graduated from Louisiana State University and practiced small animal medicine in North Carolina before returning to Arkansas. Her clinic schedule is open for routine and medicine appointments three days a week. Dr. Brown enjoys spending time with her furry feline children, working on puzzles, and reading.

Sandie Wood, DVM

Dr. Sandie Wood joined the Animal Hospital of Bentonville in December 2020. She graduated from Oklahoma State University and moved to Fayetteville in 2017. She grew up on a ranch and dairy farm, so she has always been surrounded by animals. Her parents taught her to be compassionate to animals and the importance of good health. Her favorite thing about working with animals is being able to communicate with them through tone and body language. Dr. Wood knew she was in the right profession when she started learning about animal hospice. Helping geriatric or terminally ill patients is her passion. Being able to help them live comfortably and happy with their families during the last days, weeks, months or sometimes years of their lives makes her so happy. Although she provides general medical care, her passion is hospice and geriatric care. She is a Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Veterinarian by the IAAHPC. She is also Fear Free certified. Preventing fear and stress in her patients both young and old and setting them up for a successful future at the hospital makes a difference not only to the pet, but also their family. She is a member of the IAAHPC, Fear Free, Arkansas Veterinary Medical Association, and American Veterinary Medical Association.

Dr. Wood lives in Fayetteville with her husband and their ragtag band of dogs, cats, chickens, goats and rabbits. She enjoys reading, gardening, making soap. She also owns and operates the only aquamation facility in the state of Arkansas, Forever Loved Pet Aquamation. They provide a water-based alternative to traditional flame cremation, as well as hand-made memorial options for families to treasure and honor the memory of their pet.
