How to Administer CPR
- Place the animal on its left side.
- Check its mouth to ensure that nothing is blocking the airway.
- Straighten the throat by lifting the chin.
- Blow into the nose while keeping the animal’s mouth closed; watch the chest rise as the air goes in and deflate as the air leaves.
- Place both hands, one on top of the other, over the rib cage, over the heart.
- Push your hands down about 1 inch (2.5cm) and then release the pressure. Do this rapidly, at a rate of about 80 compressions per minute.
- Place your hands one on top of the other, but over the wide part of the dog’s rib cage—this will not be over the heart.
- Exert pressure with your arms straight, so that you push down to about one-quarter of the width of the animal’s chest. Release the pressure.
- Repeat at a rate of about 80 compressions per minute.
