Welcome to the Vilseck Veterinary Clinic
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:
- Members of the Uniform Services on active duty and their family members.
- Retired members of the Uniform Services and their family members.
- Members of the Reserve Component who have been called to active duty and their family
- 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.
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.
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
