Do you work closely with Operational K9s and want to increase your medical knowledge if one of them were to require emergency care?
Operational K9s are all around us every day working jobs in Law Enforcement, Military, and Search and Rescue. Having an awareness of the differences in treating these K9 patients can make a world of difference in their outcomes. You never know what skills you may need when, having these skills in your back pocket could make the world of difference for an animal.
We’ve also designed this course to be fun and insightful even if you don’t work alongside a furry partner. Sometimes you need a change of pace, and this course will have you performing mucosal assessments and palpating for veins on your animals in no time!
Five (5) modules cover an introduction to K9s, anatomy, performing assessments, other emergencies, guidelines specific to K9s, and more. You will be able to comfortably care for or assess an operational K9 if needed.

Like all our courses, we built our K9 Emergency Care Course with you in mind. Our goal is to remove the barriers in obtaining your education to make you a better provider.
We created this course for everyone that could potentially encounter or provide care to an operational K9. Not only prehospital healthcare providers such as EMTs and paramedics but also police officers and K9 handlers, firefighters, search and rescue teams utilizing dogs, and others.
While we provide guidance and education in the subject, just like in humans, the goal with operational K9 is always to get them transported to definitive care from a licensed Veterinarian as soon as possible.
Yes! This course is Commission on Accreditation for Pre-Hospital Continuing Education (CAPCE) approved for eight (8) hours of continuing education and accepted by the National Registry of EMTs (NREMT) towards the operations section of your recertification.
Yes! This course is the online adapted version of the in-person course that has been taught to various departments throughout the country. Contact us via the form here to discuss getting one of our K9 instructors come to your agency for in-person training.

I like my k9 friends more than people and this class was great information
Great course and very informative
I have previously done the flight medic course with IAMED so when I saw they had added the K9 emergency care course it was a no brainer to take the course. The course was informative and to the point. Where I work we use tactical K9’s and this course has made me feel a lot more confident in treating my 4 legged colleagues. I fully recommend this course.
