How to Perform CPR on Your Dog

How to Perform CPR on Your Dog and Potentially Save His Life CPR is a technique used on someone whos breathing or heartbeat has stopped. It helps to keep oxygenated blood flowing to the brain and other vital organs. 58% of pet owners would be at least somewhat likely to perform CPR on a pet in need. This Could Save Your Best Friend! Find a sturdy flat spot and lay your dog on his right side. Take the palms of your 2. hands and place them on your dog's ribcage over his heart. With smaller dogs and puppys you can use the 1-handed technique. Wrap your hand around the sternum directly over the heart and squeeze. For dogs with barrel-chests, like English Bulldogs, you may perform cpr with the dog on its back (like you would a human). Push down on his chest so 3. that you are compressing it about 1/4th to 1/3rd of the way. You should do this at a speed of about 100 to 120 compressions per minute. After every 30 compressions, 1. hold his mouth shut, make sure it is completely closed, and breath into his nose 2 times. 3 Repeat steps 3 and 4 until your dog is responsive or until about 10 to 15 minutes has passed. 5.3 4 Unfortunately, if there is no oxygenated blood flowing to the brain for more than 10 minutes then brain damage is almost certain and recovery is virtually impossible.
