About this course:

This course will be 2 full days of advanced medical care for the K9. The course is designed to help handlers and team members better treat a K9 in the pre-hospital setting. The emphasis will be on working K9s such as those in law enforcement, search and rescue, disaster response, and handler assistance but the principals will be equally applicable to your home pet.

Day one will be an intensive dive into the “medical side” of EMS covering things like heart issues, heat/cold issues, bloat, allergic reactions, poisoning, etc. Day two will be an intensive dive into the trauma side covering broken bones, penetrating injuries, falls, etc.

Participants will perform procedures on the Trauma FX advanced animatronic K9 Hero medical trainer. https://www.traumafx.net/solut…
