Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine recently welcomed Melissa Esser, DVM, Dipl. ACVIM (large animal), to its internal medicine team for large animal services.

Dr. Esser’s research has focused on submaximal endurance exercise in horses, as noted in her publication “Serum immunoglobulin concentrations in horses racing a multiday endurance event” and master’s thesis, “Serum biochemistry and immunoglobulin dynamics in multi-day endurance racing horses.” 

However, she is inspired by the investigation of overall health and wellbeing of hospitalized horses, according to the college. Collaborative publications include: “The effect of infusion of equine plasma and 6% hydroxyethyl starch (600/0.75) on the plasma colloid osmotic pressure of healthy horses,” and “Nasal Adenocarcinoma in a Horse with Metastasis to Lung, Liver, and Bone and Review of Metastasis in Nine Horses with Sinonasal Tumors.”
