The U.S. Army veterinary clinic at NS Newport is in the rear of the Leisure Bay Coffee Shoppe. The station’s veterinary treatment facility is professionally staffed by Army Veterinary Corps personnel with the primary mission of providing complete veterinary care for all government owned animals. Staff understands how important your pet is to you, and with that in mind, offers many types of routine care services for the pets of military families. For availability of services or to schedule an appointment, call the facility. Due to limited manpower and resources, most veterinary emergency cases are best served through a full-service civilian veterinary hospital.
All pets living on post must be registered with the facility upon arrival. On-post housing may limit the number and breed of pets that can live in on-post housing. Contact on-post housing for more information.
Newport county code §6.04.070 states that “the owner of any dog over the age of 6 months shall have such dog vaccinated against rabies.” Please check with your local county for compliance with registering your pets and other regulations.
