GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --

The Goodfellow veterinarian clinic and Dr. Natasha Idom Allen, 17th Medical Operations Squadron veterinarian, looks to expand their operation and gain new clients.

Allen, who’s been practicing for 3 years, treat’s dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and some small rodents.

“If your pet is not feeling well or not acting their normal selves, most likely we are going to be able to provide assistance,” said Allen. “We would love to see your pet and be your primary care veterinarian.”

The clinic on base can provide animals with vaccines, bloodwork, heartworm testing, overseas medical clearing, micro chipping and more at a military rate.

“I’ve been to a couple of off base vets, and I haven’t had any bad experiences with them, but they tend to be a little more pricey,” said Jami R. Dale, clinic customer. “We had a great experience. It was very informative. She answered everything before I even needed to ask.”

The clinic offers hours on Monday and Tuesday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Wednesday 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
