In 2018, 28 police K9s were killed in the line of duty. K9s are not only invaluable assets to any police force, but they are loyal friends, protecting both their officer handler and the community at large.

Another year has come to a close, and the team at Dupont Veterinary Clinic couldn’t be more pleased with the growth of our practice and all the pets (and pet owners) we were fortunate enough to get to know. We’ve shared laughter and learning with you all, as well as a few tears, and we are grateful for your trust in us.
We have truly enjoyed writing and publishing this blog for you, as well.
