Dog Resuscitation and Artificial Respiration

  • Feel for a heartbeat
  • Open mouth and make sure the airway is clear of any objects.
  • If you have difficulty getting to the object perform the Heimlich Maneuver, it actually does work on dogs too. .

If the air passage way is clear and the dog is not breathing use a Mouth-to-Nose Resuscitation Method:

  • Pull the tongue forward, close the mouth and seal the lips with your hand.
  • Place your mouth over the dog's nose and blow in steadily for three seconds. You will see the chest expand, release to let the air come out.
  • Continue until the heart beats on its own

Always get your pet to the veterinarian ASAP
