ABOUT USArnold Pet Station has been proud to serve our community since 1992. Meet the people that make our team so great and learn more about us!
It is the mission of Arnold Pet Station to provide the highest quality veterinary care available while dedicating ourselves to making you and your treasured pet feel like family from the moment you walk through our doors. As animal owners and lovers themselves, you can count on our professional staff to treat your furry friend with the same compassion and respect they show their own animal family members. We recognize that each pet patient and client is unique, and our approach to patient care reflects that understanding. While we use standard protocols as guides, our treatment recommendations are designed to fit each patient’s individual health care needs.

She lives on 33 acres in Millersville along with an assortment of sheep, chickens, dogs, and assorted fish. Her hobbies include training others and competing in Dog Agility, needlework, and photography. “I wanted to be a veterinarian ever since high school, when I worked for a local veterinarian in Ohio. I was fascinated by the job, especially surgery. I love communicating with my clients on a personal level. I enjoy looking at my patients as a complex package, each in a unique situation.”

Have Questions or Need Assistance?
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.
All of our exam rooms have pheromone diffusers – Feliway for cats and Adaptil for dogs. Feliway is a synthetic pheromone similar to that feline facial pheromone used to mark their territory as safe and secure. Adaptil is similar to the pheromone that mother dogs emit to their puppies to comfort them. Upon arrival at the front desk, your dog will be offered a bandana sprayed with Adaptil. Your cat will be wrapped in a blanket sprayed with Feliway. We work hard to keep their time in the waiting room to a minimum.
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.
