Canine first aid treats everything from heat exhaustion to trauma

An emergency medicine course for K-9 officers held at the Alameda County Sheriff's Office in Dublin on Wednesday featured training on everything from heat exhaustion to poisoning, rattlesnake bites and trauma.

Training included how to give dogs cardiopulmonary circulatory resuscitation (CPCR), which includes mouth-to-nose revival. More than 60 dog handlers from 30 Bay Area locations attended the event.

The K-9 officers also received dog trauma bags donated by Sage Centers for Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Care to treat their partners in case of emergency.

The day was sponsored by Pet Food Express in cooperation with Cover Your Canine, an organization that helps provide bullet-proof vests for police dogs.
