Dr. Marc Seitz, ABVP (Canine and Feline), ACVR
Dr. Seitz is an Associate Clinical Professor of Diagnostic Imaging at Mississippi State University (MSU).  He earned both his B.S. in biochemistry and his DVM from MSU.  After graduation, he spent eight years in private practice as both a general practitioner and emergency clinician prior to returning to MSU as an emergency faculty member.  While in private practice, he earned Diplomate status with the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (Canine and Feline).  Due to his interest in performing and teaching ultrasound, he completed a residency in diagnostic imaging and is now a full-time board-certified radiologist.  In addition to clinical practice, he thoroughly enjoys teaching, with the ultimate goal of translating sound medical practices and current veterinary literature into useful clinical skills for both general practitioners and emergency clinicians.  His passion for teaching has been recognized through the Zoetis Distinguished Veterinary Teaching Award (2016) and the MSU-CVM Dean’s Pegasus Award for Teaching (2022).
