There are many forms of equine colic and therefore ultimately an array of necessary treatments from medical to surgical. To determine the type of colic and appropriate course of treatment requires a thorough workup.

Tate Morris, D.V.M ’16 will take us through the multifaceted colic workup and share what questions your vet is seeking to answer, why and how to answer them during the College of Veterinary Medicine’s Equine Seminar Series, on Tuesday, October 19 from 6 – 7 p.m. via Zoom.

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 in Elmont, New York as an equine surgeon and emergency clinician, where he continues 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.

The Cornell Equine Seminar Series is presented by the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine’s Equine Hospital, the New York State 4-H Horse Program and Cornell Cooperative Extension. Held monthly, equine experts present on important equine health and management topics. The event is free and open to the public.
