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.

Attention Students—As of March 12, 2020, the College will suspend all face-to-face advising meetings. Meetings will still occur either on Zoom or via phone.


All students who wish to meet with a College of Veterinary Medicine academic advisor must schedule an appointment. Appointments should be scheduled at least three weeks in advance of the student’s planned visit to campus.
