The Fort Rucker Veterinary Services, part of the Gulf Coast District Veterinary Command, has the food inspection mission of providing food hygiene, safety and quality assurance to protect the health of military personnel from food-borne illnesses.

The Veterinary Treatment Facility provides limited outpatient services for privately-owned animals.

Privately-owned animals are examined, immunized, and treated for diseases that may be transmitted to humans and cause a health problem for the military community. All animals housed on post must be registered at the VTF within three days of arrival and must be microchipped.

Services are provided to active duty Soldiers, retirees, reservists on orders for active duty 72 hours or more, and Family members. Pets are seen by appointment only and must be preregistered. The facility is closed the last working day of each month for inventory.

For appointments, please call (334) 255-9061 from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
