Dr. Welty was born in Nebraska but raised in Wyoming. He always knew that he wanted to help people and their pets live longer, happier, and healthier lives, so he entered the field of veterinary medicine. He graduated from Colorado State University in 1985. He practiced in several other cities before returning to Nebraska where he met Dr. Ebers at Capitol Animal Clinic. Dr. Ebers wanted to retire so Dr. Welty took over the practice in 1998. Since then, he has enjoyed helping the pets and the people in the Lincoln community. Dr. Welty enjoys getting new state-of-the-art equipment for the clinic and keeping up with local animal events. He also has an interest in exotic animal medicine.
