The Colic Workup Explained
Presented by Dr. Tate Morris, DVM

Located in Elmont, New York across from the Belmont Park

Dr. Tate Morris grew up on the coast of Connecticut and spent time in the dairy barns of Vermont’s Champlain Valley. Upon graduation from the University of Vermont, he worked in Wyoming on cattle and horse ranches, where he developed his passion for veterinary medicine. This prompted a return to the Northeast in 2012, when he enrolled at the Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine.

At Cornell, Morris worked in the Equine and Nemo Farm Animal Hospital as a student technician, assisted clinical research in the Comparative Orthopedics Laboratory and treadmilled poor performance candidates in the Equine Performance Clinic. After receiving his doctorate of veterinary medicine, he spent the next year as an intern with Randwick Equine Centre in Sydney, Australia, and with Rood and Riddle in Saratoga, working with a mixed population of Thoroughbred racehorses and sport horses. Following an internship with CRES in 2017, Morris joined the New Bolton Center, the large animal hospital and campus for the Veterinary School of the University of Pennsylvania.

He has now returned to CRES as an equine surgeon and emergency clinician, where he will continue to advance the elective, emergency and sports medicine case load. He brings with him an interest in airway and orthopedic surgery, novel therapy development and poor performance evaluation.
