The Veterinary Treatment Facility at 5907 Savitz Drive provides basic care for animals. Vaccinations for dogs include: rabies, distemper (seven vaccines in one) and bordetella. For cats: rabies, distemper (five in one) and leukemia. Tests performed include heartworm, feline leukemia, skin scrapes/checks, ear swabs/checks and fecals.
If you live on base, it is mandatory per base regulations that your pet is registered with the Veterinary Clinic and Security. Dogs must have a heartworm test and vaccinations updated yearly; cats must have vaccinations updated yearly.
All dogs and cats living on base must be micro-chipped. Pets traveling overseas must also be micro-chipped. The Veterinary Clinic issues travel health certificates for pets traveling between the states and overseas. Owners who are taking their pets overseas are responsible for finding out what paperwork is needed to take pets into that country.
The Veterinary Clinic sells heartworm preventative, flea and tick control, shampoos and vitamins. Due to limited personnel, surgery will be limited to spays and neuters on a will-call basis.
If there is an emergency, take your pet to a civilian veterinarian in the area. Listings can be found in the telephone book.
To make an appointment, or for more information, call (901) 874-5420, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. If your pet has a record, please bring it with you so a new record will not have to be established.
