When Spokane Valley K9 Deputy Jason Hunt appeared in LivePD this weekend several people asked, “Where’s Gunnar?”
Deputy Hunt provided an update regarding K9 Gunnar after the show.
K9 Gunnar was home healing from a recent surgery he underwent on October 30, 2017 to three of his paws which had developed growths. Dr. Doug Honken of Ponti Veterinary Hospital removed the tissue which was sent to a lab for testing and thankfully, the growths were benign.
Yesterday, Gunnar returned to Ponti Veterinary Hospital to have his sutures removed and has been cleared for work!
The staff at the Ponti Veterinary Hospital have been working with, treating, and been extremely supportive of the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office K9 Unit. They have gone above and beyond to ensure the K9s are in great health and well taken care of and, with this case specifically, Dr. Honken and everyone at Ponti Veterinary Hospital provided an exceptional level of caring and service to Gunnar and Deputy Hunt which was greatly appreciated.
We thank everyone at Ponti Veterinary Hospital for their continued support, dedication and professional treatment of all our K9s and all the animals the serve.
