K-9 Medical & Trauma Training

January 27 - January 28

Wed, Jan 27 – Thu, Jan 28, 2021
9:00am-4:00pm
THE CLASS WILL COVER THE FOLLOWING:
Why Canine Emergency Care is important in our line of work for disaster relief, SAR, terrorist situations, drug interdiction, Law Enforcement, EOD, and more.
Just a few of the topics:
  • Muzzle
  • Anatomy
  • Heat Related Illness and Injury
  • Normal Daily Care and Austere Environment Care
  • Bleeding Control (wound packing and TQ use) (Note: regular TQs don’t go on K-9s)
  • Airway (intubation, cric,)
  • Respiration (chest tap, tubes, X-ray)
  • Pharm (Don’t worry we took the math out of it for you and made it easy)
  • Fluid Management (daily, handwork, and blood loss)
  • IV/IO Placement
  • Ingestion of Poisons
  • CBRNE Treatment
  • Stabilizing other K-9 Emergencies
  • And More

For civilian K-9 units, there are veterinarians everywhere, but not all of them are experienced in Emergency Medicine and Critical Care, especially GSW.

  • As in human wounding, initial care is most critical, and that care is often given by the dog’s human team-mates
  • K-9s are often injured in high-risk missions involving disaster relief, SAR, and terrorist situations
  • May be impractical or impossible to evacuate to a veterinarian
  • Civilian-owned dogs frequently have limited budgets for vet care away from HQ2

K-9s rely on the human medical infrastructure
