Clients are allowed indoors with their animals. 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.
