Matthew Cantrell, DVM, CCRP

Matthew Cantrell, DVM, CCRP

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, heal after intense surgery, lose 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. He is currently pursuing his certifications in canine fitness (CCFT) and canine therapy (CCMT). 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!)

Ashlee Skomp, RVT, CCRP

Ashlee joined our facility in April of 2019. She is a registered veterinary technician, as well as a certified canine rehabilitation practitioner (CCRP). Ashlee has years of experience working in small animal general practice, as well as canine rehabilitation. She attended Harrison College School of Veterinary Technology, and graduated with her Associative of Applied Science Degree in 2014. Not long after graduation, she passed her VTNE and received her veterinary technician license. After obtaining her license, she furthered her education by obtaining her certification in canine rehabilitation through the University of Tennessee. Prior to obtaining her certification, she spent some of her time doing her internship here, at Indy Pet Core, and shared her other time, with Purdue’s Canine Rehabilitation Department.

Ashlee has a strong passion and drive for helping animals, and feels that rehabilitation therapy fills that need.

It comes as no surprise that in her free time, she enjoys spending it with her dogs: Bruce Wayne and Rizzo, and her husband. Ashlee also enjoys crafting, thus making many trips to Hobby Lobby to get material for making pet bandanas and anything to utilize her cricut!
