Our Commitment

The Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson Veterinary Treatment Facility is the Department of Defense’s only treatment facility serving southcentral Alaska. Our commitment to exceptional veterinary medicine travels two paths; care of the military working dog and care of the privately owned animal. We will continually strive to provide world class veterinary care to maintain the health of our deploying dogs, enabling their role in the fight. Further, we recognize the value of the human animal bond in the health and well-being of our Soldiers and their Families and are proud to extend our services to active duty, reservists, and retired military family pets.
