The Veterinary Medicine Historical Collection at MSU is one of the largest and finest collections of its kind in the nation and possibly the world. The collection features some 1,400 manuscripts and books covering the arts and practices of the veterinary profession from as early as the fifteenth century.

Today, MSU's Veterinary Medicine Historical Collection continues to grow in size and prestige. Recently an extremely rare sixteenth-century Latin translation of the Greek manuscript Kynosophion, the first work on the care of dogs, was acquired.
