CPR for Dogs

Dog CPR: A friend sent me this interesting and informative youtube video about CPR for dogs. Actually, his dog had collapsed, and knowing how to administer CPR to a dog saved its life.

The basic steps of CPR for dogs are:

1-Lay dog on its right side and kneel behind its back
2-Check for heartbeat or pulse

3-Hold jaw closed and give 4 quick breaths in nose

4-Give 15 short compressions in 10 seconds

5-Hold jaw closed and give 1 breath in nose

6-Give abdominal squeeze

7-Check dog for pulse;
- Repeat steps 4-7
