Registering your pet when you arrive: Please fill out the PHCE Pet Registration Form and bring it with any veterinary treatment records to your local military Veterinary Treatment Facility. All patients must be registered, and local garrison regulations require pet registration for on-post residents and some off-post locations. Most VTFs will not accept emailed records or registration forms. For your convenience, our Remote Online Veterinary Record maintains patient info from military VTFs worldwide and civilian veterinary records can be added to your pet’s ROVR record.
Dangerous Breed Information: Many countries in Europe ban the importation of certain breeds of dogs. Specific breeds affected vary among countries. Before you PCS, consult the VTF serving your future location of assignment for the most current regulations.
Programs: The Animal Health Program addresses animal health issues that impact human health, provides primary care for all government-owned animals in Europe, and routine care for the pets of service members.
The Food Protection Program provides food safety and food defense services for Department of Defense personnel in Europe.
