As of June 29, MSU's Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care Medicine (ECCM) operations have modified:

All walk-in patients will be evaluated. Life-threatening cases will be admitted. Cases evaluated as stable will be referred to the client’s primary care veterinarian, other facilities, or other services within the MSU Hospital, if possible. Monday–Friday, from 8:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m., the ECCM Service will operate as a “referral only” service. However, walk-in patients with critical illness or immediately life-threatening problems will always receive care. Referring veterinarians should call 517-353-5420 prior to sending any patients to MSU. View the Hospital's full web page.

Next year will mark the third edition of the bi-annual Michigan Dairy Health Symposium. The topic of the 2021 edition will be “Dairy Calf Health.” In addition to the traditional combination of MSU and external speakers, below are some of the new things that we plan to introduce next year:

  • Approval of the Program for Veterinarians and Veterinary Technicians in the Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE®) of the American Association of Veterinary State Boards.
  • A “Lightning Research Talks” session for graduate students and faculty to present MSU research aligned with the symposium’s topic.
  • A “poster/reception” session at the end of the symposium to facilitate interactions with participants and showcase all the dairy-related research done at MSU (not just calf-health related, but anything that has to do with the dairy industry).

We will be providing more information, set up a call for abstracts for both oral and poster presentations, and announce more widely as the date approaches.
