NEW!   The Risk of Opioid Exposure and Use of Naloxone (Narcan) in Working Dogs

 

On demand!

With the opioid crisis in the United States, there is increased concern about the risk of working dogs becoming exposed to these drugs on the street.  Despite reports of an epidemic of K9 exposures to fentanyl and other drugs, there is little documented on actual cases of exposure.  Join Dr. Janice Baker during this webinar to discuss a realistic look at the scope of the problem, differentiating between opioid exposure, exposure to stimulants (cocaine, methamphetamine), and other look-alike conditions, and how to treat them.

How hot is too hot? When is it too hot to work a dog? What body temperature is too hot for a dog? How long should work-rest cycles actually be to prevent heat injury? What is the best way to cool a dog if they seem overheated? Why do law enforcement K9s keep dying on duty and in hot vehicles? These are all great questions, but difficult to answer for all dogs. In the past few years, research and new insights into heat injury in working dogs has given us a new way to think about how to prevent and treat heat injury in working dogs. Join Janice Baker,  DVM, DACVPM, expert on occupational hazards in working dogs, for this interactive webinar to discuss these questions, and learn key ways to recognize and mitigate thermal stress in the elite canine athlete.
