Dog CPR - Save Your Dog with CPR

 

Check For Breathing and Pulse

Check your dog’s pulse using your middle and index finger.
The best locations to check are:

  • just below the “wrist” on a front leg
  • the inner thigh (that’s the femoral artery)
  • just below the “ankle” on a rear leg
  • where the left “elbow” touches the chest
  • see points on the image above

 

Look For Other Warning Signs

  • gums and lips may appear grey colored
  • pupils dilated and not responsive to light

 

If Not Breathing – Give Artificial Respiration

  • for smaller dogs, place your mouth over both it’s mouth and nose – blow air in
  • for larger dogs, place your mouth over the nose, and blow air in

 

Blocked Airway – Use Heimlich Maneuver

If the breath seems blocked and you are unable to blow air into your dog’s lungs, the airway may be blocked, and be the cause of your dog’s distress.

Turn the dog upside down with its back against your chest.  Wrap your arms around the middle of the dog, clasp your hands just below the rib-cage,  NOTE: You are holding your dog upside down, so it’s above the rib-cage in this position, just where the abdomen starts.

Using both arms, give five sharp thrusts (pulls) to the abdomen.  Check the airway for the object.  If you see it, remove it and give two more rescue breaths.

 

If No Pulse, Start CPR Compression

Lay your dog on it’s right side.  Place your hands over the ribs, where the “elbow” touches the chest.  This is where the heart is located.  Begin pressing compressions at a strong but appropriate pressure for the size of the dog.  See below

Do not do CPR compressions if your dog has a pulse.

For smaller dog under 30 pounds, compress chest 1/2 to 1 inch.
About 5 compressions per breath.

For medium dog 30-90 pounds, compress chest 1-3 inches.
About 5 compressions per breath.

For very large gods over 90 pounds, compress chess 1-3 inches.
About 10 compressions per breath.

 

Continue To Repeat Procedure

Check for pulse after 1 minute, and then every 2-3 minutes.

Continue giving CPR until your dog has a pulse and is breathing.

Never give up until at least 20 minutes has passed, 30 minutes is better.

 

You CAN Save Your Dog With CPR.

I hope you never have to use this on any beloved dog.

But… never doubt that you can save your dog with CPR,
