- Are you prepared if your canine partner goes down? Do you know what to do?
- Do the emergency personnel in your area know how to treat a police working dog?
- Is your tactical medic, fire department, rescue squad, or ambulance service, aware that many emergency treatments for humans also work on police canines?
Most law enforcement agencies simply load an injured or ill police working dog into the back of an emergency vehicle and drive rapidly to the veterinarian. There are measures that can, and should, be taken to save the life of a police canine that officers, medics, and emergency personnel dont do or dont know about.
K9 Down: Emergency Medical Care of the Police Working Dog is designed for canine handlers, tactical medics, fire department personnel, and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel who may care for a police working dog who has suffered a critical injury or life threatening illness.
