Meet Our Team

We're so pleased to introduce you to the veterinarians of Belton Animal Clinic & Exotic Care Center! All the veterinarians on our team share a collective commitment to your exotic pet's wellness and best health.

Madeline Anderson


Dr. Madeline Anderson earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree from Kansas State University in 2017. She also attended KSU for her bachelor's degree in Animal Science.  She was admitted into the Early Admissions Program for Pre-Veterinary Scholars in 2010, allowing her to go to veterinary school after only three years of undergraduate study.

Her professional interests include exotic animal medicine and diagnostic imaging. Dr. Anderson is especially passionate about treating reptiles and amphibians, and enjoys educating first-time exotic pet owners on how to optimally care for their new pet. Dr. Anderson is currently working to expand her skills by becoming board certified in Reptile and Amphibian Practice, as well as Exotic Companion Mammal Practice. She is a member of the Kansas City Veterinary Medical Association, Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians, and American Veterinary Medical Association.

In her free time, Dr. Anderson likes to play board games and try new restaurants with family and friends. At home, Dr. Anderson has a standard ball python named Hobart, or Hobo for short. He is her first pet and now a happy and healthy 7-year old. She credits Hobo for being the start of her love for exotic animals and collection of reptiles. Additionally, she shares her home and her heart with her three-legged dog, Finn, and has two crested Geckos named Starbuck and Ianto.

Kendell Block


Dr. Kendell Block is an Associate Veterinarian at Belton Animal Clinic and Exotic Care Center. She attended Southeast Missouri State University for her undergrad and went on to earn her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Louisiana State University in 2020. She is certified in Small Animal Acupuncture from the Chi Institute, and her areas of professional interest include avian, wildlife, behavioral, and holistic medicine.
Growing up near wildlife, Dr. Block said she was inspired to become a veterinarian after learning more about animals and how to improve their lives. She says the best part of being a veterinarian is getting to know families and the pets that are a part of them. Her role allows her to educate and help pet parents get to know their fur-babies so they can live their best lives!
Having grown up in a small town outside of Saint Louis, Missouri, she currently resides in Raymore, Missouri with her fiancé, Scott, and several unique fun cats. When Dr. Block is not practicing high-quality veterinary medicine, she enjoys reading, playing video games, and spending time with her family.

Chelsy Obrer


Dr. Chelsy Obrer is an Associate Veterinarian at Belton Animal Clinic. Dr. Obrer received her Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences from Florida International University in 2018 and went on to receive her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Missouri in 2022. She is Fear Free Certified and has a particular interest in exotic animal medicine and surgery.

Dr. Obrer wanted to be a veterinarian since she was 5 years old due to her passion for animals and science. Her favorite thing about working in veterinary medicine is the opportunity to work with a variety of animal species. Dr. Obrer takes pride in being an advocate for animal care and welfare.

Dr. Obrer is a proud Cuban-American born and raised in Miami, Florida. She recently moved to Lee’s Summit, Missouri with her husband Ivan, two cats, and two rabbits.
