Experiencing a Veterinary Emergency?
Animal Hospitals and Clinics
No Place Like Home
The Wise Center is home to the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine. As the College’s main campus and home to its physical plant, this 403,000 square-foot facility encompasses more than 10 acres located on the southwest side of the MSU campus.
Future plans for expansion and renovation call for a fitness facility, childcare area and other such amenities.
Open to the Public
Animal Health Center
The Animal Health Center (AHC) is open to the public and serves as an extension of the primary care veterinarian, providing emergency and specialty referral care for companion animals, as well as emergency, primary and specialty referral care for horses and livestock in the region.
The AHC is the clinical service unit of the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine. It is where our veterinary students gain the bulk of their clinical experience, and it offers postgraduates opportunity for expanded study as they complete internships or residencies.
Veterinary Specialty Center
The Veterinary Specialty Center (VSC) is a satellite facility of the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine located at the Premier Radiology Complex in west Starkville.
VSC provides expert veterinary care for your pet. Just as your family physician may refer you to a specialist when you need advanced or specialty care, your family veterinarian may suggest that your pet be seen by a specialist at VSC. Our Center offers advanced imaging such as MRI and CT scans, radiation therapy using a linear accelerator, and neurologic and ophthalmological care.
Animal Emergency & Referral Center
The Animal Emergency & Referral Center (AERC) is a state-of-the-art facility for advanced emergency, specialty and surgical care that is affiliated with the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine.
The AERC is an extension of the primary care veterinarian, working as a team to provide the most comprehensive and advanced care possible. AERC primarily treats canine and feline patients and does not provide routine or elective health care procedures such as vaccinations, spay/neuter services or general dentistry.
Research and Laboratories
Institute for Marine Mammal Studies
The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies (IMMS) in Gulfport, MS was founded in 1984 for the purposes of public education, conservation, and research of marine mammals in both the wild and under human care.
With funding from a grant awarded through the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) by the National Fish and Wildlife Federation (NFWF) Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund (GEBF) MSU CVM is now one of only two colleges of veterinary medicine in the US able to offer ALL of its students marine animal medicine training.
Diagnostic Laboratory System
The Diagnostic Laboratory System is composed of four laboratories that are administratively housed within the College’s Department of Pathobiology & Population Medicine.
Through the network of these four laboratories: CVM Diagnostic and Aquatic Labs, Mississippi Veterinary Research and Diagnostic Lab, Poultry Research and Diagnostic Lab, and Aquatic Research and Diagnostic Lab, essential services in microbiology, anatomic pathology, clinical pathology, molecular diagnostics, serology and virology are provided to all 82 counties in Mississippi.
