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.

Cats are becoming an increasingly important part of veterinary medicine. As a cat lover herself, MSU alumna and former MSU trustee Patricia M. Carrigan was the first to recognize the College’s potential for advancing feline health and wellbeing. She saw a unique opportunity to focus the College’s intellectual and technological resources into a cohesive unit dedicated to helping solve important health problems facing cats. In 1999, she committed herself to this effort by establishing the Pat Carrigan Endowed Chair in Feline Health. What followed was the creation of the Center for Feline Health and Wellbeing.
