Dog CPR

Updated on July 28, 2014

The importance of learning and knowing CPR for dogs!

In 2007, I read about how my blogging friend, Tish, saved her dog Cruella from choking, and then performed CPR on her dog to save her life. It was a very scary situation and we thank dog she knew what to do!

Tish and Cruella brought to my attention just how important it is to know information on how to perform CPR on your dog! You just never know what can happen.

Here we bring you information on how to learn CPR for your dog and when to use it. As my Mum always says, BE PREPARED!

How to perform CPR on your dog!

Checking the vitals!

Vital Statistics

Pulse and Heart Rate

Normal resting rates:
Cats: 150-200 bpm

Small dogs: 90-120 bpm

Medium dogs: 70-110 bpm

Large dogs: 60-90 bpm

Pulse should be strong, regular and easy to locate.

Checking the pulse

The easiest place to locate a pulse is the femoral artery in the groin area. Place your fingers on the inside of the hind leg and slide your hand upward until the back of your fingers touches the abdomen. Gently move your fingers back and forth on the inside of the hind leg until you feel the pulsing blood. Count the number of pulses in 15 seconds and multiply that number by 4. This will give you the beats per minute (bpm).

Temperature

Normal temp. for dogs and cats: 100-102.5 degrees

Info provided courtesy: The American Red Cross. Be sure and get their book - Dog First Aid.

Firefighters save dog with CPR!

Knowing how to respond quickly in an emergency and, if necessary, administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can save lives.

In this Canine CPR DVD, featured veterinarian Dr. Melanie Mokos discusses practical issues and provides a step-by-step demonstration of the techniques.

Instruction includes: definition of cardiopulmonary arrest, assessment of the dog, preparing the dog for CPR, demonstration of breathing and compression techniques, CPR techniques for one or two people, benefits of learning canine CPR.

Get the Canine CPR DVD and be prepared!

Deluxe Canine First Aid Kit

Accidents can happen so be prepared. The Deluxe Canine First Aid Kit is a high-quality first aid kit designed just for dogs. It contains over 40 veterinarian-recommended emergency items in a blue padded and insulated Thermos carrying case that is 10"L x 7"W x 3"D. This first aid kit also contains a 112-page book, Emergency First Aid for Your Dog by Dr. Tamara S. Shearer, which fits conveniently inside the cover of the kit.

Big kudos to Firefighter Odom in Northwest Louisiana for saving a pups life with Canine CPR in March of 2008! We applaud you, Firefighter Odom.

"The fact that firefighters can be lifesavers isn't anything new, but the back-to-life efforts of one Louisiana smoke-eater went above and beyond the call of duty. It happened in the town of West Monroe on Friday when Stephen Odom was called to a blaze at a home on a local street.

The fearful owner told him her two dogs were trapped inside the burning wreckage and pleaded with the crews to try to save them. Odom put on his oxygen mask, took a spare with him, and ventured into the smoky darkness, heading for the room where the animals were kept.

He found them under some blankets in their carriers, trapped in the house, and brought them outside. But it looked like it might have been too late for one of the terriers. The little dog wasn't breathing when he pulled it out of the cage and so Odom decided to do for the animal what he'd do for a human - administer CPR."

This lens on Canine CPR was blessed by Squidoo on August 16, 2007 as the Lens of the Day. Thank you Squidoo, what a great honor!

In addition, in 2008 this lens was a nominee for the 2008 Giant Squid Awards for Best Pet Lens.

Remember, everyone, BE PREPARED!

And for the humans, check out...

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique useful in many emergencies, including heart attack or near drowning, in which someone's breathing or heartbeat has stopped.

On March 4th, 2010, I was saddened to learn that Cruella, the inspiration for this lens, made her trip to the rainbow bridge from complications associated with Cushing's Disease.

We dedicate this lens to Cruella and her Mum, Tish, and thank them for allowing us to share their story and bring to light the importance of knowing CPR for your dog. Cruella will live on in the lives of all the dogs saved by the knowledge and awareness this lens shares.

Leave me some woofs!

      Thankfully this was something they covered in Puppy Kindergarten, though I learned it a little differently. I haven't had to use it yet **knocks on wood**, but I have had to dig something out of my dog's throat when she started choking and was unable to dislodge it herself. Luckily we had both trained for emergency situations and she wasn't frightened more of my fingers going into her throat.

      What a good idea for a lens. You never know whose best friend you saved. Just in case anyone is in this situation, we used to raise show dogs and sometimes the pups would be born with no apparent life. If we took a towel and vigorously rubbed their sides they would soon come around.

      I do love watching the Dog Whisperer.And although I do not have a dog, it should be fair to say that any dog in proximity will tend o have a relationship with you easily, so it is good to study all the ins and outs of dogs anyway.

      Very interesting lens, I'd heard about CPR for pets, but this is the first time I've seen instructions. Thank you.

      Our cat is 14 now, but used up 3 of her 9 lives in her first year. Then about 12 weeks ago she was hit by a car, again. I'm pleased to say she's made a full recovery. I hope I'm as resilient at her age! petmedscenter.com

      Hey JohannTheDog!

      Well, I could only be a huge fan of your lens. We actually have one of the same CPR videos from Pets America on our main lens at http://www.squidoo.com/petbrags. Since your lens is so popular (well deserved!), should I remove the video and just add the link to your lens? Or maybe it would be better for all pet kids to leave the video (your thoughts?) Regardless, I will add your lens link to our page. You have some great info. here. Is that okay with you? As I said already, great lens, awesome topic - - a BIG 5 STAR from me!

      Best Regards,

      Jen
