A unit of the Army Veterinary Corps, the Mobile Veterinary Section came under command of the Headquarters of the formation known as a Division. It was in effect a first aid unit, providing medical care for sick, wounded or injured horses used by the units of the Division. If a horse required greater care that could not be provided by the MVS, the animal would be sent to a Base Veterinary Hospital and its place taken by a horse delivered from ASC Remounts.
