All patientsseen by appointment only unless there is a potential loss of life, limb, or sight emergency. The 106th Medical Detachment (VS) will not provide after-hours emergency veterinary services for privately owned pets.
You are always our client even when you visit a clinic off base. All of the Korean veterinary clinics listed on our website assist us with providing you the veterinary care you need when we are unavailable due to mission constraints. Each clinic has been assessed by a military veterinarian to determine the individual level of routine and emergency veterinary care available. Many clinics that offer routine care have extended hours each day and can assist with acute care needs such as bloody diarrhea and moderate skin wounds after hours and weekends. Although we do not officially endorse any one specific clinic over another, we value your input both good and bad. Please consider filling out our patient satisfaction survey and clearly indicate which clinic you recently visited so we can work with them to let them know how they are doing and continue to improve veterinary care in Korea.

Only 2 pets per household are authorized transport in the event of a NEO. Single service member pet owners are required to have a pet care plan in the event of a NEO (please see your NEO warden on arrival).
Each pet must have its own rigid (no soft) airline carrier that is large enough for them to stand up, turn around and lay down only. Pets cannot be combined into one carrier.
2 Prefilled outVeterinary Health Certificates DD2209 without the veterinary signature or date in your NEO book (kit). Any pets leaving Korea will require a veterinarian to sign and date the health certificates before departure.
Prepare at least 10 days of food supply and medications in waterproof containers or Ziploc bags (if required).
Bowls for food and water that do not spill easily.
Have a well-fitting collar/harness with ID tag and a good leash.
Small plastic bags for feces disposal. Cat owners need a 10-day supply of litter and a small compact container with lid for litter storage that can fit in the cat kennel to prevent spillage when not in use by the pet in the carrier.
