Military Working Dogs

In October, a new $15 million hospital for military veterans opened at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. What sets this hospital apart is not the state-of-the-art medical equipment, but the fact that its patients are of the 4-legged variety. Dr. Bob Vogelsang, director of military working dog veterinary services at Lackland Air Force Base calls the hospital the “Walter Reed of the veterinary world.” In the latest AVMA Animal Tracks podcast, Dr. Vogelsang talks about military working dogs and the new hospital.
