Pet owners must present a DOD ID or privilege card (DD Form 1137) to have access to on-post veterinary services. Eligibility for veterinary care is based on the owner’s eligibility to receive medical care. Family members must be at least 18 years old to request veterinary services.
We strongly recommend that clients develop a client-patient relationship with a local off-post veterinarian, as the VTF cannot provide overnight hospitalization or emergency care. Appointments are usually not available for acute medical conditions. A list of off-post veterinarians is available here and for pick-up at the Vilseck VTF.
The Vet Clinics do not offer walk-in services at this time. Appointments must be scheduled over the phone or in person. Schedules are available two weeks before the start of the next month. Please keep your pet a leash or in a carrier while waiting in the clinic.
Veterinary Treatment Fees
Veterinary services and products are provided for a fee. All fees and charges are used to maintain the facilities as non-profit, self-sustaining operations and to cover non-appropriated fund operating costs. Additionally, U.S. Army egulation requires each transaction to include a $2.00 administrative fee, paid directly to the U.S. Treasury.
Checks, debit cards, credit cards and money orders are accepted as payments. Cash is not an accepted form of payment. Services and medication are non-refundable. Payment is due upon delivery of veterinary service.
PCSing or Transfer of Ownership
Pet owners are required to clear pets through the VTF prior to PCS travel. Bring documents, such as health certificates, administrative paperwork, and ownership transfer or deceased animal letters to the clinic. If owners are unable to provide evidence as to the whereabouts of the pet, a letter from the commander will be required to clear the facility. If you obtain your pet’s health certificate at the Vilseck VTF, you can be cleared at the time of that appointment.
Customers transferring their pet to a new owner must sign a Change of Ownership Letter. Both parties must sign the letter. This removes the previous owner from legal and financial responsibility for the pet. As mentioned before, previous owners will not be able to clear the VTF without proof of ownership transfer.
Veterinary services will not be provided in support of any commercial operation raising animals for profit, in accordance with Army Regulation 40-905/SECNAVINST 6401.1B/AFI 48-131, Chapter 3-4, paragraph i. This includes pet breeding and the sale of animal offspring.
