If you work around operational K9s or have K9’s you worry about and you are already TECC/TCCC trained, which of your human skills are transferrable to a wounded dog? If you are a K9 handler, you need to take both K9 First Aid and K9 TECC/TCCC classes to be prepared to treat your K9 partner
This course is intended to provide the necessary understanding and skills for a human-trained TECC/TCCC provider to treat a wounded canine/K9 when presented with one until delivery to an emergency trauma veterinarian.
- What are the most common wounding patterns in K9s? How do they differ from humans?
- Which skills and applications are the same?
- Which are different?
- What anatomy is so different you need to adjust your technique?
- Which techniques might cause catastrophic outcomes if applied?
- What other considerations are specific to K9s?
This course is completely consistent with the K9 TECC and TCCC guidelines. It is not intended to teach the full complement of TECC/TCCC Skills. The class is based on the premise that you are already TECC or TCCC trained. Students are encouraged to take the appropriate course from our TC2 series to learn the principles and skills before learning how they would apply to a wounded canine. This course includes paramedic level skills to include differences in K9 surgical airways, decompression of tension pneumothorax, medication administration, and IV/IO access.

First Class!The title is a pun(my deepest apologies;). K9TC2 is my first class with Crisis Medicine and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Clear, concise, and on par with or better than any prior training I have ever received. As a police officer/EMT/hazmat tech, I have done a TON of death by PowerPoint, including Federal PowerPoint, which should be banned by the Geneva Convention. CM not only informed but entertained. Dr. S. made the topic relatable and interesting without bogging in minutia. I look forward to taking more CM classes, and so should you.
