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.

The Abuelo Laboratory focuses on oxidative stress' impact on vaccine responses in neonatal dairy calves, and how this dynamic affects profitability and antimicrobial use on dairy farms.

Ángel Abuelo, DVM, MRES, PhD, MSC (VetEd), DABVP (Dairy Practice), DECBHM, FHEA MRCVS, primarily researches the interplay between nutrition, metabolism, and immune function in periparturient dairy cattle and neonatal calves. His goal is to identify and test mechanisms that enhance immunity in these animals, thereby increasing their resistance to infectious diseases. The methods employed to achieve these goals combine mechanistic studies using cells or tissues with epidemiological studies in the field.
