Our Mission

Support the Naval Air Station Sigonella community with veterinary care for government owned and privately owned animals.


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 U.S. Uniform Services on active duty and their family members.
  2. Retired members of the U.S. 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.
  5. Services

    Our clinic provides preventive medical care (vaccination, deworming, examinations, etc.), sick call appointments, elective surgical procedures and limited emergency care during clinic hours. We have limited x-ray and in-house laboratory capability. We do not have hospitalization capability. All services are provided on a space-available basis and are occasionally unavailable due to Army training and other mission requirements.

    Emergency Care

    Emergencies occurring during normal business hours may be seen as walk-ins when a veterinarian is available, but calling first is recommended due to limited staffing and other mission requirements. Pets requiring care beyond the capabilities of our clinic or after duty hours will be referred to a host nation veterinarian. A list of local veterinary hospitals, including a full-service, 24/7 emergency clinic in Catania, is available on a bulletin board outside the Sigonella veterinary clinic at all times.

    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.
