Beginning Sunday, August 1, 2021, all visitors to MSU's campus, including the Veterinary Medical Center, are required to wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Find details here.

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.

The Orthopedic Surgery Service at the MSU Veterinary Medical Center is made up of world-renowned surgeons who employ the best treatments and technologies to serve our patients through our Trauma, Revision and, Joint Replacement Centers. As the only academic institution in the United States that offers comprehensive total joint replacement for all major joints — hip, elbow, knee, and ankle — we provide the highest quality of service and care while closely collaborating with our Emergency, Anesthesia, Diagnostic Imaging, and Rehabilitation Services.

“For the past 50 years, the MSU Veterinary Medical Center has been at the forefront of Orthopedic Surgery worldwide, building upon Wade O. Brinker’s early vision and leadership. Excellence, creativity, innovative thinking, and dedication have been ingrained within our culture ever since. “
