JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - When a police officer is shot in the line of duty, every second counts.
That also goes for officers with four legs.
Dr. John Huff, a veterinarian at the Animal Medical Center in Jonesboro, held a K9 first aid class Wednesday at the Jonesboro Police Department.
JPD officers, as well as their cohorts from Paragould and Poinsett County, learned what to do for their canine partners in an emergency situation.
Four of the officers, according to a social media post, received Buddy Bag medical kits from Vested Interest in K9s.
The kits are packed with first aid items that officers can use on their K9s.
