D-M’s Vet Clinic not just for military working dogs

The Veterinary Clinic here doesn’t just provide care for military working dogs, but also for the Desert Lightening Team furry friends at home.

The Vet Clinic provides services for active duty, guard, reserve and retiree pets.

“As long as you’re military and use the Medical Group Clinic on base, you can use our facility for your animal needs,” said U.S. Army Sgt. Jody Gaudrault, 355th Aerospace Medicine Squadron, Veterinary Clinic noncommissioned officer in charge.

They offer basic annuals exams, vaccinations, microchips, toenail trims, dental exams and occasionally surgical services.

The Vet Clinic’s primary mission is to provide for the working dogs from the 355th Security Forces Squadron and the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.

“Security Forces are why we are here, to take care of them,” Gaudrault said. “The military usually takes care of animals on base that way civilian veterinarians can take care of those animals off base.”

The clinic is located in building 2712, right next door to their previous location. The Vet Clinic is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Animals are only seen by appointment, and it is recommended to schedule two weeks in advance.

For any questions or to schedule an appointment, contact the Vet Clinic at 228-3529.
