Learn to Perform CPR on Dogs

by | Jan 2, 2020 | CPR Tips

When you hear the phrase CPR training we all picture one human trying to save the life of another human, but did you know you can perform CPR on dogs as well? I came across this video featuring Dr. Erica W. Tinson where she clearly explains how to perform CPR on dogs in under 5 minutes.

To begin, she explains the importance of checking for airway, breathing, and circulation for starting CPR. To check for breathing check the chest wall rising and falling. When performing compressions on large breed dogs, perform the compressions over the highest point of the chest. For small dogs perform compressions directly over the heart. Never lean on an animal while giving CPR because their chest needs to fully expand back in between compressions to be fully effective. Proper CPR should be performed in 2 minute intervals while checking for response from the animal in between intervals.
