Dr. Sandie Wood was born and raised in small town, Oklahoma. Having been raised on a beef and dairy farm, she grew to love animals at an early age. She attended Oklahoma State University and received an Honor’s Bachelor of Science in Animal Science, graduating summa cum laude. She went on to achieve her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2016 at OSU as well. Dr. Wood briefly practiced in Michigan but wanted to be closer to family and the region of NWA she had come to know and love while in Oklahoma. 

Dr. Wood has been Fear Free Certified since March 2018 and was the Fear Free Champion at her previous practice. Dr. Wood also completed advanced training as a Certified Pet-Loss Grief Recovery Specialist (PGRS-C), enabling her to help pet parents and continue to support the human-animal bond even past the loss of the pet. 

Outside of work, Dr. Wood enjoys her mini-farm: a few goats, a mammoth donkey, and small flock of chickens.  Dr. Wood and her husband, Jonathan, also have 4 dogs: Mojo Jojo (a rescue mutt), Speedy (a former bomb-sniffing dog and former research participant), Monty (a smaller rescue mutt), and Ginger Snaps (a rescued Old English Bulldog). They have 3 cats: Simba, Sofie, and Fitz, a rescue who has been blind since birth.  Dr. Wood is a closet nerd and enjoys Dr. Who, subtitled anime, DnD, and board games.  Another favorite pastime is singing in the car, but occasionally Dr. Wood can be heard singing just about anywhere.
