Bill - Hospital Cat  My favorite thing about having APS as my home is that I can explore a hospital! I am always finding new places to hide and am always on the lookout for food! All of the APS staff are my pets, they answer to me (I am very demanding)! My favorite quote is, "People who don't like cats were probably mice in a past life."
Dr. Lindsay Laird  I earned my DVM degree in 2010 from Virginia Tech University. My favorite thing about working here is being able to help you and your pets. I have a Pitbull mix named Rufus who is known for the nickname "Blockhead" here at APS. My favorite quote is, "Always aim for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."
Katie Marshall - APS Team Leader  My favorite thing about working here is being able to help out in every department. I started out as a Kennel tech, and now I am a Veterinary Technician going to school to become licensed in the State of Maryland. I have also been trained in the receptionist area, so you'll see me up there from time to time. I also really enjoy my strong bonds with the clients and their pets. I have a zoo at my house which consists of a black lab named Maui, a beagle named Libby, two cats named Motley Crue and Buggie, an aquarium of fish, AND four chickens named Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Reba, and Dolly Parton.  My favorite quote is, "No matter how much it hurts, how dark it gets, or how hard you fall, you are never out of the fight." - Marcus Luttrell, retired United States Navy SEAL
Jennifer Howard - Veterinary Technician  My favorite thing about working here is the love I have for the people I work with, they are like family to me. I have a Puggle named Roxie and I used to have a Beagle/Pit Bull mix named Benson for seventeen years who stole my heart and saved my life. I also had a beautiful cat named Maggie Moo. My favorite quote is, "Live, Laugh, Love."
Damian Marzorrati - Veterinary Technician  My favorite thing about working here is training Katie to perform dentals and Dawn to monitor animals while they're in surgery, under anesthesia. I have three cats named Zeke, Toby, and Siri. My favorite quote is, "It is what it is." - Bill Belichik
Nancy Ward - Receptionist  My favorite thing about working here is being able to communicate with the families as well as greeting the pets. I have owned Vickee, Liza Jane, Sunnee, and BJ; all German Shepherds who used to show in Confirmation and Obedience. I also used to breed most of my Shepherds. My favorite quote is, "Live life to the fullest."
Ron Rawlinson - Kennel Technician  My favorite thing about working here is the dogs. I have a Mastiff/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix named Taylor. My favorite quote is, "Get 'er done." - Larry the Cable Guy
Lisa McKeague - Practice Manager  My favorite thing about working at APS is getting to know our clients and their pets and watching their journey together and being able to help them, along the way, when they need me. I also really enjoy working with our wonderful APS staff, such beautiful, caring people. I currently have two newly adopted cats named Butch and Sundance (Sunny), one dog named DeeDee, and one bird named Caesar, who has shared life with me for more than thirty years. I have been very fortunate to share my life with some amazing cats(5)and dogs(3), who are waiting for me on the Rainbow Bridge 🌈. One of my favorite quotes is, "In a world where you can be anything, be kind."
Kaitlyn Gracie - Kennel Technician
*Seasonal*  My favorite thing about working here is getting to work with my coworkers and watching the dogs play and grow. I used to have a Sheltie named Cody, and have had many fish and aquarium snails. My favorite quote is, “Coffee in one hand, confidence in the other.”
Stephen - Kennel Manager  My favorite thing about working here is being able to work with such a great staff and of course, seeing the animals! I have three dogs of my own, Lexie a mutt, Sam a Samoyed/Labrador Retriever mix, and Bella a King Charles Cavalier/Golden Retriever mix. My favorite quote is, “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams...Live the life you’ve imagined.” -Henry David Thoreau

Our Veterinarians

Dr. Lindsay Laird

Dr. Laird is locally raised and educated. Originally from Hagerstown Maryland, she earned her DVM from Virginia Tech in 2010 after undergraduate coursework at McDaniel (Western Maryland) College and several years in cancer immunology research at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore.
Her professional interests include surgery, internal and emergency medicine. When she’s not busy helping pets, she enjoys time relaxing with her son and a Pit Bull mix named Rufus!

Dr Porteous with dog

Dr. Jeanette Porteous

Dr. Porteous joins the team at Arnold Pet Station in February 2021. She has lived in Maryland for most of her life and is a graduate of the University of Maryland College Park and Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine.
Dr. Porteous’ love of animals was inspired by her favorite movie growing up, Dr. Dolittle – and so a career in veterinary medicine was a natural fit for her! Internal medicine, ultrasound diagnostics and behavioral medicine are a few of her specialty areas.
When not caring for the furry patients at Arnold Pet Station, Dr. Porteous enjoys agility and obedience training with her pups, Oscar the Weimaraner and Alice the French Bulldog.

Farewell to Dr. Leslie Carr

Dr. Carr, our former lead vet, wanted to be an animal doctor since high school. She picked up her passion working for a local veterinary clinic in her home state of Ohio. And in 1984, she earned her DVM from The Ohio State University.  In 2011, she expanded her veterinary expertise with a certificate in Veterinary Spinal Therapy (also known as chiropractic medicine). She proved herself an accomplished surgeon and enjoyed getting to know her clients at a personal level. She is still in the area, caring for an assortment of pets: including sheep, chickens, dogs, and fish. She came to Arnold Pet Station in 1992 and retired in 2019, and we will all miss her compassionate animal care and wonderful presence at the practice.

Our Approach – Fear Free Veterinary Visits

Arnold Pet Station is proud to be a part of the Fear Free Veterinary initiative.

At Arnold Pet Station, we use aromatherapy, pheromone therapy, food therapy and when necessary, light anti-anxiety medications. Research has shown that the scents of Lavender and Camomile are calming to both humans and pets. We use these scents throughout the hospital.

We use pheromones to calm your pets. Upon arrival at the front desk, your cat will be wrapped in a blanket sprayed with Feliway, a synthetic pheromone similar to a pheromone cats use to mark their territory as safe and secure. When dogs arrive, they are offered a bandana sprayed with Adaptil, which is similar to the pheromone that mother dogs emit to their puppies to comfort them. We work hard to keep your pet’s time in the waiting room to a minimum. All of our exam rooms have pheromone diffusers. 

We love to give treats! We have special treats for food allergic animals too. Our staff cares just as much about your pet’s emotional well-being as their physical well-being during their routine visits.

If we are still not successful in reducing your pets’ stress and anxiety to an acceptable level, we can use anti-anxiety medicines or reschedule at your convenience.
