For years Dr. Matthew Cantrell and his wife, Megan, have dreamed of taking the healing and rehabilitation of pets to the next level. With Dr. Cantrell's certification in canine rehabilitation and therapy he has the education and skill to help any dog heal from a devastating injury, intense surgery, loose those last few pounds, and or even take their athletic ability to the next level. Dr. Cantrell works with you, the owner, to create the best rehabilitation plan to fit your goals and lifestyle. Dr. Cantrell is currently pursuing his certifications in Canine Fitness(CCFT) and Canine Therapy (CCMT). Both Megan and Dr. Matt strive to create a place where both the patient and owner feel proud, educated and successful. When Dr. Matt isn’t leading his teams or serving the Indiana Veterinary Medical Association as President, you can find him out on the local trails running, running, and running some more! (He is an avid ultramarathon runner!)
