The NAS Jax Veterinary Treatment Facility is managed by the Army Veterinary Service. The clinic offers veterinary preventive services including new puppy/kitten vaccines and health certificates, routine pet immunizations, testing for intestinal parasites/heartworms, medical management of obesity, arthritis and allergies, and minor sick call appointments. The clinic offers heartworm preventatives, flea control products, shampoos and other items.
