A Grand Opening

Mississippi State College of Veterinary Medicine Dean Kent Hoblet cuts the ribbon for the new Nestlé Purina Nutrition Center and the Nestlé Purina Student Center at CVM's Animal Health Center. The modern facility represents an unparalleled commitment to advancing the role of nutrition in the care and well-being of canine and feline patients. It also serves as a central location for CVM students to study, research and collaborate on cases. The nutrition and student centers are made possible by support from Nestlé Purina.
