Due to the continuing battle against COVID-19 we will remain serving our clients through curbside service indefinitely.

We’re here for you.


Here at IPC, our clients and patients are our number one priority. We pride ourselves in making sure you are optimally educated about your pet’s therapies and treatments. We work hard to form a personal relationship with you based on trust, education, and understanding. Your pet’s experiences with us are extremely crucial in the success of their program, therefore we do everything in a positive and compassionate way.

Above all, Dr. Cantrell wants to be a positive force in the community and surroundings. The way that he is most comfortable being this force is by helping animals and helping their people understand how best to take care of them. He believes that the more a pet owner knows about pet-related diseases and how to prevent them, the better that person will be equipped to provide their furry family member a longer and better life. And the longer a pet is around, the longer it provides stress relief and an outlet for the love each of us has within us. It’s a wonderful cycle!

Chelsea Gill, KPA-CTP, Lead Trainer

Chelsea joined our team in February 2018 and has helped strengthen the human-animal bond in countless families since then.

She has over 15 years of experience working with dogs of all breeds and skills. Her previous experience training rescue dogs to become service and therapy dogs helps her work through behavior modifications in a variety of situations. She currently leads our training program, including group classes (puppy and adult), private sessions, police K9 teams, and more!

When she’s not leading a class, you can find her training with her team, Midwest Search Dogs, of which she is currently president. (You can follow her team on Instagram at @midwestsearchdogs.) She also enjoys spending time outdoors with her K9 Nikhya, playing frisbee, hiking, and exploring. Chelsea also has two turtles at home that she is training in her free time!

Kaylee, Rehabilitation CSR

Kaylee, Rehabilitation CSR

I started working in animal rehab about three years ago when I interned at Indy Pet Core and Community Pet Healthcare. I quickly found a love for rehab and watching the patients improve over time. I have recently joined the team again and am excited to help assist clients and patients!

What I love most about Indy Pet Core is being able to help a patient enjoy their appointment while helping them feel better and watch them make strides to recovery.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with Gunner, my Treeing Walker Coonhound, and Ren, my kitten. I also enjoy camping, hiking, going to the gym, and watching Michigan football and basketball. Go Blue!
