Is your pet on a Grain-Free Diet? If so, please keep reading!
In June 2018, the FDA issued an alert that there was a strong correlation to pets eating a Grain-Free Diet, and pets that were developing a fatal heart condition, Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM). DCM is a condition in which the heart becomes weak and oversized. Without treatment, pets eventually enter Heart Failure, and can quickly die. When the pets in question were switched back to a normal diet containing grains, the condition was usually reversible, if caught early enough.
Currently, the FDA is investigating how Grain-Free Diets are causing this phenomenon. What we DO know is that small boutique pet brands are CONTINUING to market these diets, despite the ever growing evidence that they are causing fatal disease in our pets.
If your pet is receiving a Grain-Free Diet (diets containing legume, pea, lentil, potato carbohydrates) please consider switching them back to a diet containing grains (wheat, corn, barley, oats, rye, rice). If your pet is receiving a Grain-Free Diet due to an allergy or sensitive stomach, attempt to switch them to a sensitive stomach formulation that contains grains, and keep in mind that, unlike people, the culprit for canine food allergies is RARELY grains.
If you’d like to read more, check out this article from the FDA.
Good morning Yokota Pet Community,
Our office will be closed today 27 MAY to conduct our End-of-Month Inventory.
We will re-open WED 01 JUN with our normal business hours.
Have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
We wanted to take a moment to recognize our Greensuiters in the clinic for their recent accomplishments during the Norwegian Ruck March this past Friday!
Veterinary Technicians CPL Griggs and SSG Johnson (middle), with Veterinarian CPT Anthony (right), rucked a combined 43 miles between the three of them!
Physical readiness and resiliency training is one of our most important Army missions. Being prepared for the possibility of deployment, at a moments notice, is a vital part of being stationed in the Asian Pacific AOR. Thank you Yokota Family for your support, and Comms Squadron for hosting the event!
Good morning Yokota Pet Community 🐶,
📌Important Information for owners PCSing OCONUS in June!️📌
Our facility will not have a military VCO to sign and endorse international health certificates ️from mid June - early July. Owners who are PCSing OCONUS with pets during that time can reach out to VTF's in the region such as Camp Zama or Yokosuka to check for availability or contact Japan AQS for authorized off base clinics that can complete international health certificates. ✈️
This does not affect CONUS health certificates.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our clinic at 225-4363 or [email protected].
Good afternoon Team Yokota,
Did you have an experience at Yokota AB VTF that you would like to share with us?
We want to know when our staff is going above and beyond and when you felt that you weren't satisfied with our services. 🐶🐱
Yokota AB VTF now has our own ICE page for your convenience in sharing these experiences with us! You can submit your feedback to ICE: Yokota Veterinary Treatment Facility, under "Health" or "374th Medical Group" or follow the link below.
Thank you all for your support!
Yokota AB VTF Closure Dates for MAY
27 MAY- Closed for End of Month Inventory
30-31 MAY Closed for Memorial Day & Family Day
Good morning Yokota Pet Community,
Our office will be closed today 29 APR to conduct our End-of-Month Inventory.
We will re-open MON 02 MAY with our normal business hours.
Hey Team Yokota! It’s that time of year again ✈️ PCS Season! See below for Health Certificate tips and tricks for success in PCSing with your BFF 🐶🐱
1) I’m PCSing back CONUS - This is easy peasy.
☑️ Step 1: Make sure all your pets’ vaccines are up to date
☑️ Step 2: Bring a copy of those records to the Yokota VTF, if they were performed off base. If certificates are in Japanese, have the practitioner translate them using the Rabies Vaccine Certificate form, posted in comments.
☑️ Step 3: Give us a call one month out from your PCS date. We will either book you a slot right then, or if we are full, we will refer you off base. Remember, off base clinics CAN write Health Certificates back to the States!
2) I’m PCSing to another country and I don’t even know where to start - Google is your friend! 🔍
☑️ Step 1: Try visiting this website
This site outlines travel from the US -> Foreign Country. Usually, the instructions outlined will provide a website for your specific country. You may then visit that website, and find the instructions for Japan -> Foreign Country.
☑️ Step 2: Alternatively, type “Pet Import ___name of country___” into Google. It will take you to an importation website if one exists.
3) I’ve found my country’s pet importation info, but it’s just too much for me to cipher through - We see you Hawaii, Guam, Singapore, & Malaysia! 🌎
☑️ Step 1: Create a timeline. Write down your departure date, and begin to outline exactly what requirements are needed at which time intervals. If you don’t know your exact departure date, put an estimate and create the timeline anyway. We can shift left or right as needed.
☑️ Step 2: Dont hesitate to contact the country’s importation services! Once the pet importation website is found, contact information will always be available. Pet importation officers are a wealth of information and can usually answer any questions you may have. They are the experts for their country!
☑️ Step 3: Once you have your timeline, and you know WHAT is needed WHEN, give us a call to book an appointment to accomplish each task. This can include vaccine updates, FAVN draws, Health Certificates, and specialty tests required by the country.
Points to remember:
💬 If your pet is flying commercial, you ALSO need to notify Japan Animal Quarantine Services. There are additional documents they require. You can visit their website here:
💬 We do not create your timelines for you. We are happy to consult as needed on the accuracy of the timeline & requirements you have researched for your country. But there are simply too many countries, too many pets, and too few hours in the day for us to help you in that way. Shipping your BFF is your responsibility!
💬 Plan ahead! Bringing vaccine records into the clinic the day of your Health Certificate exam, calling with 24hrs notice for a Health Certificate, or requesting additional last minute services during Health Certificate appointments, are simply requests we are too understaffed to accommodate, and will be refused.
Thank you all so much for your support of the Yokota AB Vet Clinic! We are proud to be a part of the Yokota Family. We wish we were a bigger facility, with more staff, more doctors, and more appointment slots. But we appreciate y’all’s understanding regardless 💛 Happy PCS Season!

⚠️ VERY important information alert! ⚠️
As you may know, one of our primary missions is preparing pets for a possible Emergency Evacuation (NEO/EEP). ☢️ In the event of a natural disaster, act of war, or other scenario requiring a mass evacuation from Japan, we want everyone’s pets to be included in this evacuation. ✈️ Check out the following tips for ensuring your pet will be allowed on the evacuation flight.
‼️Remember, if these criteria are NOT met, the flight line will REFUSE your animal, and they will be forced to stay behind ‼️
☑️Rabies Certificate is presented, is in English, and is up-to-date (less than a year old)
☑️NEO/EEP packet Health Certificate (DD2209, issued by the Yokota VTF) includes your pet’s current Rabies shot (less than a year old)
☑️You have an appropriately sized travel crate
Things that will result in your pet being denied from an evacuation flight
❌NEO/EEP packet Health Certificate (DD2209) has an expired Rabies vaccine on it (over a year old)
❌Rabies vaccine certificate is missing, in Japanese, or is not up-to-date (over a year old)
❌Your pet does not have an appropriately sized crate for travel
Things that the clinic can NOT provide when an Emergency Evacuation is taking place
🐱 Rabies Vaccines 🐱 When a true emergency evacuation is taking place, the Veterinarian is present to in-process and validate pets’ records. We will NOT be updating Rabies shots, as we carry very few at a time, and will not have the manpower.
🐶 Pet feeding & walks 🐶 During a NEO/EEP, pets will be housed temporarily in their travel kennels while pet parents in-process in other areas for the evacuation. You, and a small number of volunteers, will be responsible for letting your pet out for bathroom breaks, and feeding them. We usually recommend that you have a weeks worth of food taped to the top of their kennel.
What can I do to prepare?
🔍 Check your pet’s Rabies Certificate. Do you know where it is? Is it over a year old? Is it in English? Please ensure it is updated, or give us a call if you have questions
🔍 Check your pet’s NEO/EEP packet (DD2209). Do you know where it is? Does it have a valid (
