Dr. Chris Korte
Dr. Chris Korte was raised on a family farm in Eastern Missouri. His family raised beef cow/calf pairs, hogs, and had family pets of dogs, cats, and horses. He received his undergraduate degree in Animal Science from Northwest Missouri State University before continuing his education at the University of Missouri. From there, he received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1998. Dr. Korte began his career at a mixed animal practice in the Kansas Cist, MO area. Through the years, Dr. Korte has followed his passion in equine medicine and has worked at several equine race tracks including Keenland and Church Hill Downs in KY. The race track helped Dr. Korte enhance his skills in equine lameness and surgery. He enjoys the challenge of working up a lameness and determining the best treatment protocol for the equine athlete. Although his passion is in equine medicine, his skills in both small and large animal are accomplished. Dr. Korte is licensed to practice in 8 states and has had the opportunity to work on many accomplished horses including Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird. Fremont Veterinary Hospital in Canon City is proud to have Dr. Korte join their team and looks forward to the opportunities that this relationship will extend to the horseman and their equine companions. He lives in Pueblo West with his wife Jeanna Blasingame and their two children. During his time off, Dr. Korte and his family enjoy sports as well as riding and showing their horses.
