EAGLE RIVER — Few people would be surprised to learn there’s a vet clinic on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.
But this particular facility treats patients of the four-legged variety, rather than veterans.
It’s a veterinary treatment center.
The facility, located on the base’s Fort Richardson side, treats thousands of animals a year. Some are military working dogs, including a dog that died in March of an inoperable mass in his abdomen.
