Dr. Clare Morris

Dr. Clare Morris “Dr. Clare” as clients and staff like to call her, graduated from the Atlantic Veterinary College on the East Coast of Canada in 1990. (Yes Dr. Clare is a Canuck.) After graduating, she went to work in a predominantly equine clinic in Vancouver British Columbia, practicing medicine on all types of horses. There she had a special interest in embryo transfer, foalings, and infertility problems. She was also able to work at the Vancouver Zoo and a wildlife park in Langley BC, where some of her patients included polar bears, elephants, rhinos, giraffes and bison.

Her interests led her to a residency in Georgia, and eventually Dr. Morris made her way back to the Pacific Northwest, where she opened her small animal practice, Urban Vet in 2004.

Dr. Morris does a significant amount of work for the Doney Memorial Clinic, which is a non-profit organization that helps low income and homeless citizens obtain veterinary care in Seattle. Dr. Morris and staff members went to Romania in 2010 to help spay and neuter stray dogs and cats.

Dr. Morris has taken the international veterinary acupuncture course, and tries to incorporate this modality into her western practice when warranted. Her goal is to use western medicine, complimented by eastern.

Dr. Morris’s future plans are to continue volunteering in various veterinary projects and disaster preparedness.
