U.S. Army Garrison Bavaria Vilseck Veterinary Treatment Facilities are professionally staffed by Army Veterinary Corps personnel with the primary mission of providing complete veterinary care for all government-owned animals. Our staff offers several routine services and limited emergency care to the pets of military families. Due to our limited manpower and resources, most veterinary emergency cases are best served through a full-service civilian veterinary hospital.
All pets living on post or in government-leased must be registered with the VTF upon arrival or within 14 days of adoption. Appointments are not necessary. Bring the pet’s medical and administrative records, if applicable.
The Housing Office may have restrictions on the number or breeds of pets allowed to live in on-post housing. For more, contact the Housing Office.

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 after-hours emergency care. Appointments are usually not available for acute medical conditions.
Pets are seen on a space-available basis. Call our office to schedule an appointment, or come during our walk-in hours from 9 a.m. – noon and 1 - 2 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Call ahead to confirm the most up-to-date walk-in availability.
Please keep your pet a leash or in a carrier while waiting in the clinic.
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.
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.
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 of 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.
