Hours: 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday; no appointments Thursday due to training. Appointments are available as the vet’s schedule allows.
NOTE: All service members’ pets should be registered with the VTF within 72 hours of arrival on base.
The U.S. Army Veterinary Service provides comprehensive veterinary care to all government-owned animals, such as the 412th Security Forces Squadron’s military working dogs, and to service members’ privately owned animals through the Veterinary Treatment Facility. The VTF offers appointments for wellness exams, sick call and routine surgery or dental procedures. It is highly recommended that pet owners maintain a relationship with an off-base vet as a backup for those times when the military veterinarian is not available.
The Veterinary Corps also supports public health and force protection initiatives across the DOD, ranging from food safety missions at China Lake Naval Air Station and Marine Corps Logistics Base to commercial sanitation inspections of all food establishments that sell products to the Defense Commissary Agency. In fact, did you know that all the food in the commissary is inspected by Veterinary Corps personnel before becoming an approved source to be sold to you in the commissaries?
