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.
Our specialists coordinate with primary care veterinarians to provide continuity of care when patients require specialty care or sophisticated diagnostic tools and treatments.
Specialists in more than 20 specialty services provide care to companion animals in state-of-the art facilities. The depth of expertise results in care unmatched in the state.
We provide emergency care as well as advanced diagnostics, specialty medical and surgical treatment, and therapeutic services for horses, cattle, and other food / fiber animals.
