FORT CARSON, Colo. (AP) — A Fort Carson detachment has opened a veterinary clinic in Afghanistan for military working dogs.

The Army said Thursday the 438th Medical Detachment, a veterinary unit from Fort Carson, opened the clinic at Kandahar Airfield last month.

The clinic will treat military and contract dogs working with coalition forces in southern Afghanistan.

The 438th Medical Detachment provides health care, preventative medicine, food and other services.
