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.
DVM-Phd student Zoë Williams is one of three veterinary students who have been awarded Coyote Rock Ranch Veterinary Scholarships by The Foundation of the Horse. All three students are pursuing careers in equine medicine. Williams' scholarship totals $75,000.

Recently, Williams was featured by the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine for Give Green Day, a campus-wide fundraising event. The College raised money for scholarships, and Williams emphasized how receiving the Tracy A. Hammer Memorial Fellowship has impacted her educational experience.
"This fellowship has allowed me to finish my PhD this semester, without taking on more financial burdens," Williams said. "I am truly grateful for this award... Her memorial fellowship has enabled me to pursue my DVM/PhD investigating equine myofibrillar myopathy. Tracy truly pioneered the way for ambitious dual degree students, and I want to continue her legacy."
