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. Online, self-paced.
- 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.

OutstandingI commend Crisis Medicine on this outstanding and well-set-out material and for making this material available to people like myself, who want to become more educated and prepared in the event of an emergency. Having skills to help and build the confidence to step up and assist rather than watching in the background and not knowing how to make a difference. In this instance to hugely important members of an operational team like K9's. Specifically, we you have the best Dutch Shepherd on the planet, in our humble opinion! Thank you for this! With respect, Greg Webster
Super CourseSuper course for anyone who has or handles a canine. A must for all dog owners who want the best emergency care for their canine until a veterinary medical trauma doctor can take over.
K9 TC2Another great creation from Crisis Medicine! I took this class and I’m not even a K9 handler, but now I feel confident that if any of my working K9’s need urgent care, I now have the knowledge to help prevent a K9 casualty. Any K9 handler I come across, this course will be mentioned to them! Great job and keep up the great work!
Must take classThis class is great! Highly recommend taking, the class is delivered in a direct, no-nonsense, easy to apply, and learn. I highly recommend it. I've taken other classes from Crisis Medicine and love every class I have taken. The information has definitely made me more adaptable and capable of delivering higher-quality care. 10/10 Definitely Recommend
An awesome course, good to have such knowledge!What a fantastic course that I've been able to experience! Each time I'm amazed at how well the Crisis Medicine courses are prepared and delivered online. I am a trained Belgian EMT and recently I also work for a private security firm, where I often come in contact with K9s. In Belgium, we unfortunately don't have a course like this one. I recommend it to all my colleagues, it's a really good addition to our trainings and TECC. Congratulations to your team, Crisis Medicine, for giving these classes online and you really nailed it!
