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.

As of June 2021, the MSU Veterinary Medical Center has switched to a new electronic medical records system called Instinct. This program offers an option that allows MSU to share documents with its referring veterinarians via a web portal.

In sum, when a referring veterinarian's patient is admitted to the MSU Veterinary Medical Center, the referring veterinarian will receive an email that states that the patient has been admitted with information on how to access the portal. Here are detailed steps on how to access information via Instinct.

When the patient has been discharged, the discharge statement--and any other documents the referring veterinarian requests--also will be available through this portal.
