Meet our Equine Veterinary Team.
Jacksonville Equine was established in 1991 by Dr. Alan Weldon with a plan to bring Institutional quality medicine to Northeast Florida and Southern Georgia. Prior to coming to Jacksonville Dr Weldon worked in a large equine practice in Ocala Fl. as well as serving as the resident veterinarian on the top thoroughbred farm in Western Australia. Dr Weldon then received his residency training at Cornell University becoming Board Certified in Internal Medicine. He has a special focus on diagnostic ultrasound and cardiology and well as neurologic/respiratory and gastrointestinal disease. He is married to Beth (also a Veterinarian) and they have 5 kids, 5 dogs, 2 cats, 3 birds.
Dr. Nancarrow is a University of Florida graduate and also practiced in Ocala and in Western Australia. He owned a practice in Clay County FL as well as spending several years practicing in North Carolina. Dr Nancarrow has a special interest in Ophthalmology and equine lameness diagnosis.
Dr. Kelsey Vallario is originally from Lake Mary, Florida. She attended the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL.After graduation from veterinary school, she joined Tennessee Equine Hospital, for an equine specific internship. It was here she had the opportunity to work alongside veterinarians who have expertise within sports medicine, reproduction, surgery, ophthalmology, internal medicine, dentistry and more. Kelsey is excited to be joining our Jacksonville Equine Associates / Southern Georgia Equine Veterinary team! She is bringing her thoroughbred gelding, Snickers, with her to Georgia. He was a surprise birthday present at 15 years old and, while he no longer does the hunter/jumper courses he did in his prime, he’s become a life long companion. Outside of veterinary medicine, Kelsey enjoys hiking, reading, and traveling.
