Our Mission

The Vilseck VTF mission is to provide high quality veterinary medical services to Military Working Dogs, to train and maintain MOS skill proficiency, and to support installation disease control and surveillance programs to limit community health threats. As part of our mission to control zoonotic diseases, we promote privately owned animal wellness through access to routine preventative medical care and basic minor sick call. We also support Soldiers and their families during PCS moves through prioritized Health Certificate appointments.


Privately owned animals of eligible military medical beneficiaries are authorized to receive veterinary care on a space available basis. The following categories of personnel are authorized to receive veterinary care for their privately owned animals:

  1. Members of the Uniform Services on active duty and their family members.
  2. Retired members of the Uniform Services and their family members.
  3. Members of the Reserve Component who have been called to active duty and their family members.
  4. U.S. citizens stationed outside the United States who are employees of the DOD or other Federal agencies paid from appropriated funds or nonappropriated funds and their family members.

Clinic Policies:

The following policies are not all inclusive:

  • All pets must be on a hand leash or in a transport kennel and under the owner's control at all times.
  • An adult must accompany all pets seen for appointments.
  • All pets must be registered with our clinic within 14 days of acquisition or arrival in country. Registration is at no charge and may be done without an appointment but must be done in person.


Our clinic provides preventive medical care (vaccination, deworming, examinations, etc.), microchipping, health certificates, sick call appointments, dental care, ECG diagnostics, x-ray diagnostics, elective surgical procedures and limited emergency care during clinic hours. We do routine in-house laboratory testing and use out-of-house testing (24-72 hour turn around). We do not have hospitalization, boarding, lodging, or fostering capabilities. Pets are seen on an appointment only basis.

Emergency Care

Emergencies are seen during normal operating hours when the veterinarian is available. Owners should make all attempts possible to contact our veterinary clinic prior to arrival to ensure non-appointment care is possible. Pets requiring care beyond the capabilities of our clinic or after duty hours will be referred to a US or host nation veterinarian (see list on the right under Useful Information).

Food Inspection

Assigned Veterinary Food Inspection personnel provide food safety and inspection services protecting the health of military members, their families, and the local community by ensuring safe, quality food is delivered and accepted to our retail and troop feeding locations.
