The NAS Jax Veterinary Treatment Facility (VTF), managed by the Army Veterinary Service, is in Building 537 on Biscayne Street near the gas station. Customer parking is at the far end of the building at the end of the dead-end street. The door closest to the
gas station is reserved for Military Working Dog access.
The clinic offers veterinary services to pets owned by active-duty and retired personnel, their dependents, and reservists on active duty. These services include minor sick call appointments and wellness visits such as new puppy and kitten vaccines, routine pet immunizations, testing for intestinal parasites and heartworms, and health certificates. The clinic maintains a well-stocked pharmacy including heartworm preventatives, flea and tick preventives, and other items. The sale of prescription items is limited to pets that have had an annual exam performed by a military veterinary facility with the last year. Routine surgery and dentistry are also available as well as digital radiology, ultrasound, and in-house blood analysis.
The facility is open 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. The clinic is closed on Thursdays to accommodate staff training and closes early on the last business day of the month for inventory. Please bring any previous medical documents and vaccination records to your pet’s first visit.
Housing residents may keep pets in their homes as outlined in community resident polices. All cats and dogs residing on post should also be registered with the veterinary clinic even if not planning to use the veterinary clinic for pet care.
