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.
Dr. Leslie Carr
Dr. Carr, our lead vet, has 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 she’s been living her dream since 1984 when she earned her DVM from The Ohio State University. She came to Arnold Pet Station in 1992. In 2011, she expanded her veterinary expertise with a certificate in Veterinary Spinal Therapy (also known as chiropractic medicine). She is an accomplished surgeon and loves getting to know her clients at a personal level. When she’s not at work, she cares for an assortment of pets: including sheep, chickens, dogs, and fish.
Dr. Kelly Stern
Dr. Stern takes a holistic approach to animal health and specializes in acupuncture and dental care. She earned her DVM in 2006 from Colorado State University and has been at Arnold Pet Station since 2014. It was at Colorado State where she also received her specialized training—a certificate in pet acupuncture, and several advanced courses in pet dentistry. She is trained in identifying oral diseases, interpreting radiographs, and tooth extraction approaches that reduce pain, anesthesia, and recovery times. But she’d love to never perform any extractions, and so advocates that owners give their pets regular dental screenings along with routine checkups! Dr. Stern has a husband, two small children, a yellow Lab named Kona, and a black Lab named Chester.

Her professional interests include surgery, internal and emergency medicine. When she’s not helping busy helping pets, she enjoys time relaxing with her husband Sean and a Pit Bull mix named Rufus!

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.
