Finding your dog unconscious and not breathing would be a terrifying situation. That's why we brought in pet first aid expert Denise Fleck to show us what we should do if we find ourselves in that situation.
Denise demonstrated, step by step, how to perform CPR and rescue breathing -- the same kind we're taught on humans -- on a dog or cat. We learned how to perform mouth-to-snout rescue breaths, how find our pet's pulse at the femoral artery on the inner thigh, where exactly to locate our pet's heart to begin compressions, and how to perform those compressions on both large and small animals.
Take a look as Denise explains the process, and be sure to check out her website (http://www.sunnydogink.com/) if you're interested in more information on pet first aid.
