Dog CPR - How to Perform CPR On a Dog.

Check the scene for safety. If it is an unfamiliar or aggressive dog or if you feel you can't perform dog CPR, call a veterinarian immediately.

Check for signs of breathing. If the dog is unconscious, get down to floor level and see if the dog's chest is moving. Try to feel or hear if air is coming from the dog's mouth or nose. Check for a pulse by feeling the femoral artery along the neck.

Clear the airway. If the dog is unconscious, open its mouth, pull out its tongue, and check for signs of obstructions or blockages. Extend the dog's head and neck.

Wrap the dog's muzzle. If you feel the dog might bite when he/she comes too. Use a flat strip of gauze or pantyhose and tie it around the dog's muzzle.

Deliver oxygen through the mouth-to-snout method. If nothing is blocking the airway, tilt the dog's head slightly back with the dog's mouth closed, place your mouth over the dog's nose, forming an air tight seal. Breathe in enough air causing its chest to rise and fall. Aim for 12-20 breathes per minute. Avoid hard inhalations, which can force air into the dog's stomach and cause its lungs to over inflate and collapse.

Check for a heartbeat. Place your hand behind the dog's front left elbow on it's lower chest.

If there is no pulse begin chest compressions. Position the dog on its side with its spine against your body. Place one hand on top of the other about a third of the way above the sternum on the chest, and interlace your fingers. Apply about five steady downward motions at a rate of one per second. Follow with one breath with the mouth-to-snout method. After every two minutes alternate chest compressions and breathes, stop and check for a pulse.

Be prepared. Locate a local American Red Cross offering dog CPR first aide courses, call (213) 739-5200.
