As of June 29, MSU's Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care Medicine (ECCM) operations have modified:

All walk-in patients will be evaluated. Life-threatening cases will be admitted. Cases evaluated as stable will be referred to the client’s primary care veterinarian, other facilities, or other services within the MSU Hospital, if possible. Monday–Friday, from 8:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m., the ECCM Service will operate as a “referral only” service. However, walk-in patients with critical illness or immediately life-threatening problems will always receive care. Referring veterinarians should call 517-353-5420 prior to sending any patients to MSU. View the Hospital's full web page.


Rehabilitation aids in the healing and mobility of pets and athletes through individualized treatment plans. At the Dr. Elwood and Linda Collins Rehab Center, our team focuses on the whole patient while providing personalized care and consideration to any injury, illness or objective. Our team consists of veterinarians and licensed veterinary technicians that understand pain management and condition maintenance through their wealth of experience and advanced training. While working with you and your primary veterinarian, a comprehensive treatment plan will be made for your dog or cat that will be explained thoroughly before any therapy is initiated. Our Veterinary Rehabilitation Service is a great way for clients and their furry friends to achieve success together.

“Rehabilitation improves healing while enhancing patient recovery and quality of life. Through collaboration with our referring veterinarians and pet owners, we can offer many therapeutic options.”
