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.

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.
