Learn how to care for your dog like the U.S. military. This is the official military manual used for training dog handlers on veterinary care of military working dogs (MWDs).
Thorough, descriptive, and informative, we have taken the Veterinary Care and Management of the Military Working Dog manual and reformatted it into a more reader-friendly version. From equipment and facilities to dentistry, this guide will educate on K9 well-being and veterinary care.
You will learn:
- Equipment and Facilities
- Preventive Medicine, Deployment Issues, and Standard Procedures
- Emergency Medicine
- Common Medical Problems
- Diagnostic Imaging
- Physical Conditioning
- Behavioral Medicine
- Necropsy and Pathology Support
- And more!
This manual consolidates medical information, policies, procedures and regulatory directives specific to the medical management of MWDs into one document. Army Veterinary Corps Officers have researched, extracted, and compiled the material from a variety of references from all services and standards of veterinary practice within the United States. This book will not teach you how to be a veterinarian, but it will help you be a better dog owner.
