Performing Pet CPR

April 4, 2017

1. According to the ASPCA, if your pet needs CPR you should:

Check to see if he's breathing. If not, place your dog or cat on his side and begin CPR.

 

2. Administer rescue breaths. Gently extend your pet's neck, then holding his jaws closed, form a seal by placing your mouth over your pet's nose. Blow into his nostrils every 3 seconds. Make sure that no air escapes between your mouth and his nose.

 

3. Pump hard, pump fast. If you don't feel a heartbeat, deliver 3 quick chest compressions for every breath administered.

 

 

4. Continue administering pet CPR until your dog or cat begins breathing again on his own.

As a general precaution, be sure to locate a 24-hour veterinary service in your area. This way, if something happens and your dog or cat needs urgent care, you'll know where to go for help and can get him there quickly.
