Meet Our Veterinary Team

Kendallville Animal Clinic was opened July 12, 1995, beginning another chapter in Dr. Scott Taylor's desire to assist animals. Dr. Taylor was raised on a farm near Decatur, Indiana and went to Veterinary School at Purdue University. He did an externship in Ethiopia, Africa, where he provided surgical and preventative medicine for domestic livestock and had opportunity to work with exotic animals like monkeys, cheetahs and lions. After Veterinary School, Dr. Taylor practiced in Mitchell Indiana and then in Auburn, Indiana working with both farm animals and companion pets. His desire to provide lifelong care for animals was the force behind the establishment of the Kendallville Animal Clinic. Explore "our services" for the care we provide. In 2010, Dr. Taylor had the opportunity to again work with exotic animals as he took over the primary veterinarian role at Black Pine Animal Sanctuary.  One day Dr. Taylor would once again like to go on short term mission trips to assist people and their animals in different locations throughout the world. His love for animals and people are seen every day as he cares for the pets that come into the clinic.

Dr. Funnell recently married off both of her daughters and is enjoying the empty nest! She and her husband have a black lab named Ink, four horses, and many chickens.

Preventing and Treating Hot Spots

Acute moist dermatitis, more commonly known as hot spots, occurs due to a bacterial infection on your pet’s skin. Your dog or cat will naturally bite, chew, lick or scratch his skin in response to an irritant. Unfortunately for your pet, this tends to increase rather than decrease his discomfort. Anal gland disease, allergies to fleas or food ingredients, mange, tick bites, and inadequate grooming are the primary causes of hot spots in companion animals.
