Preforming CPR on Your Dog

Post by JSAN_911 on Mon May 28, 2012 6:38 pm

Check the
scene for safety.
If it is an unfamiliar or aggressive dog or if you feel you can't perform CPR, immediately
contact your veterinarian or an emergency veterinary clinic for assistance. Keep the dog
comfortable and calm, if possible.
Check for signs of breathing.
If the dog is unconscious, get down to floor level and see if its chest is moving. Try to feel or
hear if air is coming from the dog's mouth or nose. Check for a pulse by feeling the femoral
artery along the neck.
Clear the airway.
If the dog is unconscious, open its mouth, pull out the tongue, and check for any signs of
obstructions or blockages. Extend the dog's head and neck.
Wrap the dog's muzzle.
For protection against bites, wrap the dog's muzzle with a flat strip of cloth or pantyhose. Loop
it over and under the muzzle, and tie it behind the ears to prevent he dog from pawing it off.
Deliver oxygen via the mouth-to snout method.
If nothing is blocking the airway, tilt the dog's head slightly back. With he dog's mouth
closed, place your mouth over the dog's nose, forming an airtight seal. Breathe in enough air
to cause its chest to rise and fall. Aim for a rate of 12 to 20 breaths per minute. Avoid hard
inhalations, which can force air into the dog's stomach and cause its lungs to over inflate and
Check for a heartbeat.
Place your hand behind he dog's front left elbow on its lower chest.
If there is no pulse, begin chest compressions.
Position the dog on its side with its spine against your body. Place one hand on top of the
other about a third of he way above he sternum on the chest, and interlace your fingers. Apply
about five steady downward motions at a rate of one per second. Follow with one breath via
the mouth-to-snout method. After every two minutes alternating chest compressions and
breaths, stop and check for a pulse.
Be Prepared.
