Veterinary Services at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall has a three part mission: to provide full-time routine and emergency care to our Military Working Dogs and Caisson Platoon horses, to provide safe and wholesome food to military personnel and the JBM-HH community, and to provide preventive medicine and routine care to pets belonging to past and present warriors in the National Capital Region.
Very limited emergency services are provided for privately owned animals. Services available by appointment only are vaccinations, micro-chipping, well-pet exams, minor sick call, health certificates, heartworm tests, fecal exams, toe nail trims, assistance with preparing pets for CONUS or OCONUS moves and dispensing medications such as heartworm preventative, flea and tick preventative, and prescription diets. Due to the limited services available, we strongly encourage pet owners to have a civilian veterinarian to provide emergency and additional routine care.
The Veterinary Treatment Facility (VTF) is located at 101 Jackson Street, Building 239 (behind Conmy Hall and the water tower) on the Fort Myer portion of the joint base. They are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 3:30 p.m. for over-the-counter sales; closed federal holidays and the last business day of each month. Patients are seen by a veterinarian by appointment only.
Due to military obligations and the government owned animal mission, we may the VTF may be closed at any time, so please call before coming.
