Owners & Referring Vets

About our Staff

When your pet is admitted to the Veterinary Specialty Center, you and your pet are under the care of a full team of veterinary medical professionals. As a result of our affiliation with the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine, this team may include not only board-certified veterinarians and certified veterinary technicians, but also graduate veterinarians. Our goal is to provide your pet with the highest quality of care.A technician holds a dachshund still while a veterinarian examines its eye

Based on training and function within the hospital care team, caregivers may be referred to as:

Attending Veterinarian
A board-certified veterinary specialist who is an MSU CVM faculty member who leads the healthcare team of residents, interns and veterinary medical students and who is responsible for your pet's plan of care.   

Resident and/or Clinical Instructor
Veterinarians who have received their veterinary medical degree, have significant experience or training after graduation and have elected to pursue advanced training in the specialty of small animal internal medicine.

Veterinarians who have received their veterinary medical degree and are now pursuing the first step towards receiving advanced training.

Veterinary Medical Students
Senior (final year) students who may be involved in your pet’s care as part of their preparation to become veterinarians but will only work under the supervision of the attending veterinarian.

It is not unusual for your hospital care team to rotate and for several doctors to be treating your pet. As new caregivers join the team, they will introduce themselves. Although the veterinarians may rotate, the quality of your care will not diminish because the entire hospital care team is tightly coordinated to provide you with the best possible care!
