The mission of the Camp Pendleton Veterinary Treatment Facility (VTF) is to not only provide complete medical and surgical care for the military working dogs (MWDs), but to also provide high quality veterinary care at a reasonable cost for the pets of our military community. Because our primary attention must be devoted to maintaining the deployability and health of our canine warriors, the MWDs, we are unable to function as a full-service veterinary hospital. In light of our demanding mission with the MWDs, we focus our privately-owned animal (POA) mission on preventive medicine. We offer appointments for vaccinations, microchip implantation, health certificates for travel, wellness exams, and limited sick call. We encourage our clients to call our appointment line for availability of sick call appointments, but also realize that it often may be in the pet's best interest to be seen off-base in emergencies, non-elective surgeries, or cases requiring hospitalization or advanced diagnostics.
