Paige Heywood, Mt. McKinley Animal Hospital, Fairbanks, AK 99701

Veterinarian at Mt. McKinley Animal Hospital, Fairbanks, AK 99701

Mt. McKinley Animal Hospital

We regret to inform our Mt. McKinley Animal Hospital friends that Dr. Paige Heywood will be leaving our practice at the end of February. While we are sad to see her go, we are excited for her future adventures. Not only is she looking forward to being closer to her family in Missouri, but Dr. Heywood is pursuing a specialty in veterinary dentistry. Sadly, Fairbanks’ distance from the lower 48 makes this a bit more challenging.

Dr. Heywood will be here with us through the month of February; her last day being February 28th. If you would like to schedule an appointment or dental procedure (don’t forget its Dental Month!) please give our office a call as her schedule is quickly filling up.


Paige Heywood, DVMDr. Heywood was born in Kansas and grew up in Kansas and Missouri.  She graduated with a B.A. in Psychology from Drury University in Springfield, Missouri then attended graduate school at the University of Northern Colorado before joining the U.S. Army. 

After proudly serving 8 years in the U.S. Army Military Police Corp (K-9), Dr. Heywood realized that she wanted to work with dogs (and cats) and the people who love them for as long as possible.  So, she left the military to attend veterinary school at Western University in California where she graduated in the charter class of 2007.  Afterwards she practiced for 2 years in Orange, California before returning to Fairbanks where she plans to live happily for many years to come with her menagerie of misfit dogs and a few cats as well.
