Guidelines regarding prevention and treatment of heat injury in the field are often complicated or altogether impractical for the field environment. This is not surprising, as most treatment guidelines arise from the veterinary academic setting or fully staffed and equipped emergency and specialty referral hospitals. In this presentation, we break down these guidelines to a practical level, and discuss what the canine handler or response team veterinarian needs to know about recognizing early signs of heat stress, mitigating heat injury from an operational standpoint, as well as how to provide potentially life-saving treatment with the limited resources of the deployed or field environment.
