You decided to bring your pet with you on your journey to Italy and have already taken care of the costs of shipping and chipping your furry friend (see the NSA Naples Welcome Aboard resource if you need more information on getting your pet to Naples). A big question once you arrive is, how do you care for your pet while you are there? The following section provides information on vet clinics and kennels.

There are several options when it comes to taking care of your pet while in Naples. For veterinary clinics, the on-base clinic is operated by the Army — and that information is listed below. We’ve also listed some off-base options that are available to be of service. It may be helpful to speak some Italian or have a translator to help you if you are making arrangements with the options listed for the off-base services.


The U.S. Army Veterinary Command is responsible for Department of Defense installation support including Food Safety and Defense, Military Working Dog animal care, and family pet care.

Naples Naval Support Activity Veterinary Treatment Facility


The Naples Branch Facility has no jurisdiction regarding pets outside of the NSA Naples gates—Italian or American. This includes stray animals and pets that become lost off-base.
