K9 Sam is a 7.5-year-old German Shepherd dog certified in Patrol and Narcotics. Sam is assigned to Deputy Tonja Ekberg of the Comanche County OK Sheriff’s Department. K9 Sam is Deputy Ekberg’s shadow and always seems to know what she’s thinking. Sam is very loving and great with kids. Off-duty, he protects his home from bad squirrels. On-duty, he is a professional and knows what to do when its time to do what they do Deputy Ekberg couldn’t imagine life without him.
Here’s how this equipment both helps Sam and Dty. Ekberg on the job:
The Ranger K9 Trauma Kit provides sterile, veterinary grade, K9-specific supplies to assist an officer in providing aid to their K9 in the event of an on-the-job incident or injury. This kit includes a canine oxygen mask, along with other first aid items, a quick reference sheet for K9 vitals and dosing, and comes in a heavy-duty, canvas bag that is embroidered with emblems ensuring that it is easily identifiable for K9 use.
