The 129TH MED DET (VM) along with elements of the 106TH MED DET (VS) provide comprehensive animal care to all SOFA status personnel in the Republic of Korea. There are four animal hospitals where veterinarians are permanently stationed (fixed veterinary facility). These are located in Pusan (Busan), Osan, Taegu (Daegu) and Yongsan. The numerous other bases are managed on an attending or referral basis. The capabilities of the facilities in Korea vary in scope of care that they can provide due to instrumentation and staffing. In general all fixed veterinary facilities are able to provide routine basic medical and surgical care to include emergencies. Complicated cases or cases involving other than routine surgery may be referred to the Yongsan Veterinary Hospital.
