Reilly Road Animal Hospital Meet Our Team

About Our Doctor

Dr. Bentley Stephenson was born in Northampton County, NC, where he resided through his high school years. He developed a keen interest in animals at a very young age and decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. He attended N.C. State University (Go Wolfpack!) and graduated from the veterinary school in 1985. He traveled south to his first veterinary job in Pinehurst, N.C. After practicing in Pinehurst for three and half years, it was time to focus on a small-animal practice in Fayetteville, N.C.

Dr. Stephenson bought Reilly Road Animal Hospital on March 1, 1990, and has enjoyed the many years of treating his patients and looks forward to many more fulfilling years. He also received a MBA degree from Duke University in 1990. Dr. Stephenson has served on the board of the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Association for the past six years and is also an officer for the North Carolina Companion Animal academy. He enjoys spending time with family and friends. He also finds it relaxing to spend time outdoors, especially observing and filming wildlife.

Guest Service Team (Animal Care Specialists)

For the love and care of your furry friend, there is absolutely no one better to take care of their needs. As trained animal care specialists, we bathe, feed, medicate and assist in many duties. Whether they are sick, here visiting for the day, or here on a long-term visit, you can count on us to watch over your special family member like our own.

Brittany Ellmo and her animal care team provide a home away from home for your pets. You are welcome to send any special treats - food, toys, and bedding - you think will make your pet feel more comfortable. The staff will make sure any personal items are washed and sent home with you. Brittany has a chihuahua named Rocky, and a German shepherd mix named Skye at home. She is pictured here with one of her favorite boarders, Tiger.


We are pleased to offer our clients the professional services of our groomer, Kelli. With more than 6 years of experience, she has worked with cats and dogs of almost every breed, including mixed breeds. Kelli's calm and gentle manner enables your dog to relax and have a safe and comfortable grooming experience.

Routine grooming contributes to your dog's overall health. Not only does a clean dog feel good but often medical problems are picked up by the experienced groomer.

Kelli will discuss your expectations and work with you to give you the look you want. All professional baths include a massaging bath, blow dry, nail trim (manicure) and ear cleaning.
