CLACKAMAS, Ore. (FOX 35 WOFL) - A K9 officer in Oregon was administered an overdose reversal drug after she was exposed to heroin.
The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office says that at approximately 7:30 p.m. on August 7th, K9 Abbie and handler Deputy Eliseo Ramos were conducting a search for contraband at the Clackamas County Jail. The dog alerted on smuggled heroin on top of a hygiene container under a table.
However, during the search, the sheriff's office says that the container spilled over and Abbie was exposed to the heroin. Abbie began exhibiting signs of drug exposure, including excessive saliva, rapid head shaking, and rapid blinking.
K9 Grimm's handler, Deputy McGlothin, reportedly was able to deliver a special Narcan kit for the dogs to the Jail to administer nasally to K9 Abbie. The Narcan successfully stabilized Abbie and she was transported to the VCA Animal Hospital for treatment. She was held for observation overnight and released the next morning.
