Re: If your pet stops breathing, do this NOW.


It’s Tuesday morning, and I am back on a regular schedule.

I was up in the dark hours, attending to an emergency yesterday-
It was a large bleeding wound, that required some URGENT care-
but it all turned out well.

Speaking of Emergent Care..
The CPR video is recorded and getting ready to be shipped out-
It was fun doing it with Lewis and Mischief, and it helped
me get refreshed. There are things about CPR that I was a little
rusty on.

And I am seeing ill and injured dogs and cats daily.
Do YOU know what to do if your pet STOPS breathing?

If the answer is NO, then you need to learn CPR.

It’s NOT complex.

In fact it’s pretty easy.

Here is the link to get the video:
Here are the basic steps:

1. Assess Responsiveness. Before you start CPR, ensure that
your pet is not still breathing, and their heart is breathing.
If so, they DON’T need CPR.

2. Establish a PATENT airway. Perform 2 rescue breaths by wrapping
your hand around their muzzle and blowing into their nose. If the
chest rises, then the airway is patent. If the chest DOES NOT
rise, then you need to check for an OBSRUCTION.

If this is the case then you need to do the HEIMLICH.

In this procedure you are holding your pet upside down,
their head is pointing down and their spine is against your
body. You give 5 sharp thrusts to the abdomen- you are putting
force on the abdomen to help dislodge any obstruction.

3. ONCE you have a patent airway- you give 2 rescue breaths.
When you see the chest rise and fall, and you know that the
airway is open, then you proceed to Step 4 – Circulation.

4. CIRCULATION. In this step you are compressing the chest,
and that in turn compresses the heart. This is best performed
by having your pet on their right side. The heart is easiest located
on the left side of the chest, behind the left armpit.
For a large dog use 2 hands, For a cat use your thumb and forefinger.
Compress 15 compressions- 3 compressions every 2 seconds, then follow
this up with 2 rescue breaths.

Continue until your pet starts breathing again or you have emergency
care at a Veterinarian.


P.S. my NEW CPR Video shows you HOW do to ALL of this in
STEP by STEP detail. And if you are wanting to have it SENT
to your door, ALL you need to do is become part of my Inner
