Dr. Kelly Vernon

Dr. Kelly Vernon graduated cum laude from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine in 2004. She stayed in Florida after school, practicing near her hometown in Sebastian, Florida initially, before moving to Belleview in 2008. Dr. Vernon and her family have a small farm with cats, dogs, chickens, goats, and horses. She and her daughters enjoy horseback riding, with her girls competing in local hunter-jumper competitions.

Dr. Vernon loves senior dogs and frequently has a new rescue pet living out its life with her family. When she is not tending to the farm and its occupants, she also loves reading and traveling. Dr. Vernon has a special interest in geriatric medicine and pain management, as well as dermatology. In the hopes of better serving her patients, she earned her certification in acupuncture from the Chi Institute in 2011, and her certification in canine physical rehabilitation in 2019. These specialty certifications have allowed her to provide more care options for her clients and patients. Dr. Vernon is excited to join the team at Magnolia Animal Hospital and offering preventative care, as well as acupuncture and physical rehab, to her new patients.
