Location: MSU College of Veterinary Medicine

Vet-a-Visit is our annual open house, where everyone is welcome to visit and learn about the world of veterinary medicine. This year, registration will be required to participate in the event. Please check back in December for more information.

Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine and Veterinary Technology students provide educational exhibits related to veterinary science. This year’s theme will illustrate how a veterinarian diagnoses various cases for both small and large animals.  

All exhibits will showcase the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine’s mission of Learn, Discover, Heal, Protect. If you love science and animals, or are interested in a career in veterinary medicine, Vet-a-Visit is for you. 

Please Note: Registration will be required. Details coming in December.


The event is free; however, a small fee will be required for parking. This is to provide the most efficient process for all of our participants. Please note that our students sell merchandise and concessions as fundraisers. Please plan to bring any cash you may need.


No personal animals are allowed at Vet-A-Visit. This is to ensure the health of your pet, as well as those animals under the care of the MSU Veterinary Medical Center.

There are no age restrictions; however, we generally do not recommend bringing children younger than five.
