Beginning Monday, June 14, 2021, the MSU Veterinary Medical Center will allow clients into the building with patients. Find details here.

Any patient presented to the MSU Small Animal Emergency Service will undergo an initial medical evaluation to determine if urgent care is needed, and whether hospitalization is warranted. The MSU Small Animal Emergency Service will only hospitalize patients that our clinicians consider to be unstable or to have life-threatening conditions.

We are excited to announce that the Veterinary Technology Program has obtained approval from MSU Academic Governance to change the name of our program to the Veterinary Nursing Program, effective spring 2020.

This change will more accurately convey the content of the Program and help to clarify the goals and purpose of the Program and the type of careers available to graduates of the program. As a leader in veterinary medical education, the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine will be among the leaders advancing the professional identity of our graduates.
