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 Student Summer Research Program

The Center for Feline Health and Well-Being supports veterinary students in the summer student feline research program. The summer research program is coadministered with the College’s NIH sponsored campus-based summer student research program.

Graduate Student Education

We are pleased that the Center is able to support graduate students in MS or PhD graduate degree programs who are investigating problems in feline health. Support of graduate students engaged in feline research may be in the form of fellowships, graduate assistantships, or funds for purchase of research supplies, services, equipment, or for support of travel to national scientific meetings to present their findings.

Continuing Education

The Center is also a regular sponsor of continuing education seminars for post-graduate veterinarians at the local and state levels.
