Stabilizing other K-9 Emergencies
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
