How to Give Your Puppy CPR

Pet First Aid is the immediate care given to a pet that has been injured or that suddenly become ill.  It is the first, and often most critical step to getting your fur-baby well again.

Even the most competent Vet cannot bring your fur-baby back to life once his heard and lungs have stopped, but by knowing canine CPR and Rescue Breathing, you can help keep your precious pooch alive until professional medical help is available.  
Your CPR certification for adults does not automatically mean you also know how to give your puppy CPR. Chest compression for humans and dogs involve forceful motions, with one hand on top of the other on the surface of the chest. However, this sort of force may do more harm than good when dealing with a puppy. Learn the steps to modified respiration and CPR for puppies to increase their chance of survival.

Please note that Canine First Aid and CPR are not replacements for veterinary care - they simply help you and and your Vet work together as a team for the well-being of your pooch.
