Frequently Asked Questions

Is CPR on a dog worth it?

Of course it is! Dog CPR typically has a low success rate, but can and does work. Your pet is your family's' best friend.

What are the new CPR guidelines for pets?

The new CPR guidelines for pets recommend giving mouth-to-snout ventilation with 30 chest compressions and 2 rescue breaths until the pet begins breathing again.

How do you perform CPR on a pet?

To perform CPR on a pet, start with 30 chest compressions followed by 2 quick breaths, repeating these steps immediately. For breeds like Labrador Retrievers, lay the pet on their side and focus chest compressions over the widest part of the chest. If the pet is very flat-chested like a bulldog, lie them on their back and place your hands as shown in the diagram. Be sure to cover your pet's nose with your mouth and continue with a cycle of chest compressions and rescue breaths until your pet begins breathing again on its own. It's also important to briefly check for breathing and a heartbeat every 2 minutes.
