(Lackland Air Force Base, Texas) Called the "Walter Reed of the veterinary world," a $15 million hospital for military dogs opened yesterday. No question, military dogs are valuable assets and they deserve the best in medical care.

Dogs working for all branches of the military and the Transportation Safety Administration, are trained at Lackland Air Force Base to find explosive devices, drugs and land mines. Some 2,500 are currently working with military units.

Like soldiers and Marines on the battlefront, military dogs suffer war wounds and routine health issues that need to be treated to ensure they can continue working.

Dogs injured in Iraq or Afghanistan get emergency medical treatment on the battlefield and are flown for care to Germany. If necessary, they'll fly on to San Antonio for more advanced treatment -- much like wounded human personnel.​
Woof! Woof!
