Quality veterinary care is offered to active duty, dependents, retirees of the U.S. military, and Reserve members stationed at Barksdale on ACTIVE status. A valid military ID card must be shown and full payment made at the time of service.
The Barksdale Veterinary Clinic provides vaccinations, heartworm testing and prevention, routine dentals and surgeries, feline leukemia testing, parasite control products, microchipping and health certificates for travel. Sick calls are accepted on a limited basis, based on facility capabilities and time. Prescription medications, including heartworm and parasite prevention products, are only available once a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship (VCPR) has been established and proof of vaccinations have been received if not a current patient.
The clinic doesn't have the capabilities to offer hospitalization, intensive care, illnesses or care requiring extended and/or prolonged treatment or emergency services. For this reason, it is highly recommended to locate and establish a VCPR with an off-base veterinary clinic. The clinic also doesn't offer grooming or boarding. Staff can provide a list of local civilian veterinarians and facilities that offer these services.
