Veterinary Corps Missions:
 

Military Working Dogs 

  • Ensure that MWDs are kept healthy and ready to deploy at any time. MWD emergencies can happen at any time – in the event this happens, privately owned animal appointments may need to be rescheduled.
 
Public Health
  • Promote public health and prevent the spread of zoonotic disease (diseases passed from animals to humans) – provide wellness exams, vaccinations, and preventive care to privately owned animals.   
 
  • Perform inspections of various food vendors, commissaries, CDCs, and dining facilities as part of preventive medicine to ensure that food and animals are safe – this may cause limited appointment availability at times due to our veterinarian conducting these missions.
