Excerpted from our compilation of Theater Trauma System Clinical Practice Guidelines produced by the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research, this ebook presents guidelines for canine resuscitation and the clinical management of military working dogs.
Military Working Dogs (MWDs) represent a powerful asset to military police, Special Forces units, and others working in today's combat environment. Expectations are high that these dogs, if injured, will receive a high level of resuscitative care at the Echelon II and III, where the presence of a trained veterinarian is uncommon. Canines differ in anatomy and physiology in comparison to the injured adult human. Knowledge of key differences will assist the physician in resuscitating and stabilizing injured MWDs prior to transport to veterinary care. Physicians should only perform medical or surgical procedures necessary to correct life-threatening issues and to prepare the MWD for MEDEVAC.
