Cornell Ruffian Equine Specialists (CRES) is an elite equine veterinary hospital located in western Long Island, NY. As a branch of Cornell University, we have a reputation of providing the highest level of specialty care. Our clientele is diverse, encompassing Olympic athletes, world-class racehorses, national level performance horses and everyday companions. CRES is one of the six units of Cornell University Hospital for Animals, the teaching hospital system of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY. Recognized internationally as a leader in veterinary medical education, animal clinical medicine, biomedical research and public health, Cornell is ranked consistently as one of the best veterinary colleges in the nation. At CRES, veterinarians aspire to assimilate knowledge gained on all fronts – at the track, in the show ring, at the research bench, and in the hospital – to deliver paradigm-shifting veterinary medical care.
CRES provides state-of-the-art surgical, diagnostic, and emergency care to enhance equine health. CRES is staffed by Cornell University faculty and staff and offers a full complement of advanced orthopedic and soft tissue surgery, regenerative therapies, critical care, lameness as well as advanced imaging (Standing MRI, nuclear scintigraphy, dynamic and high-definition video endoscopy). The hospital is located across the street from the backstretch of Belmont Park, the world’s premier Thoroughbred horse racing facility. CRES regularly collaborates with referring veterinarians to meet the needs of New York State racing and the surrounding sport horse communities. Specialists in internal medicine, dentistry, ophthalmology, and podiatry are routinely consulted as we strive to provide elite level care to our patients.
