She most recently completed an internship at the Southern California Veterinary Specialty Hospital in Irvine, California. Dr. Morse has a special interest to ultrasonography and surgery.
‘I grew up with pets-they were always a big part of my life. I couldn’t imagine a career that didn’t involve working with animals. When I was 7 years old, my cat Flame, was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus. I decided right then and there and I was going to become a Veterinarian so that I could ‘cure diabetes’.
‘When I was in Vet school, I used to volunteer at a monthly, student run clinic sponsored by UC Davis, that provided free veterinary services to pets of homeless individuals in Sacramento. It was heartwarming to see how much the people, who had almost nothing, valued their pets and would come for miles around to make sure that their beloved companions could receive veterinary care’.
“I want to make sure that all my clients know that I am a loving pet owner myself who really understands how important the human animal relationship is, and how much our pet companions can influence our lives”.
‘I was drawn to IVS, not only because everyone at the hospital practices good quality medicine, but also because there’s a great sense of camaraderie and teamwork, between the doctors and staff-it makes for a great work environment.
Prior to relocating to California Dr. Morse was a resident of Orono Maine.
Dr. Morse is ‘owned’ by 4 cats names Kratos, Iris, Tiberius, and Spock.
