How To Do Pet CPR And First Aid ?

According to the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) 1-out-of-4 more pets (dogs, cats) would survive, if just one pet first aid technique was applied prior to getting emergency veterinary care.
Approximately 6 out of 10 households in the US own some type of pet. By last count, there are over 110 million dogs and cats in the country. Based on a study made by the American Humane Society, pets are content and happy when they are, at all times, surrounded by familiar sounds, smells and sights. Just like humans, animals such as cats, dogs and puppies can be involved in mishaps and accidents. 

The question is, would you know what to do if your pet was in an emergency? Would you know how to stop the bleeding? What if your pet starts choking, what would you do? When an emergency occurs and it involves our pets, every second counts. If you really want to be the best owner for your pet, you need to learn pet CPR and first aid. 
Out pets love us unconditionally.  We owe it to them to educate ourselves in all aspects of their care.  Our class offers peace of mind for dog, cat and puppy lovers and care givers including trainers, kennel staff, pet retailers, pet sitters, veterinarian staff, animal shelter staff, pet rescue employees, groomers, etc.
Come to us or we travel to you for both human and pet cpr and first aid classes. Learn first aid skills, choking, what to do for bleeding, heat related illness, 
poisoning and more.

 

Common Questions:

What will I learn in class?

You’ll learn emergency skills such as what to do if your pet has a seizure, suffers an electric shock, is injured in a car accident or ingests poison. You’ll also be trained to administer CPR if your pet stops breathing (yes, you can give a dog or cat mouth-to-mouth — really mouth-to-nose in this case — and yes,we practiced on dog and cat dummies). You will also learn Dog, cat and puppy cpr and choking, Cuts and bleeding -Poisoning - Drowning - Rescue Breathing and CPR -Simple Medication Administration - Fractures and Sprains - Animal Bites or Insect Stings - Burns or Severe Cold injuries and more.
The course I took also taught us how to assess a pet’s vitals, bandage wounds, administer medication and restrain an injured pet; how to tell whether your pet is choking, having a seizure or suffering from some other issue; as well as how to deal with more common injuries such as a wound to your dog’s paw pad.

How much is your course and how long does it take? Cost is $70 per person and it is approx. 4 hours long.

How do you do cpr on dogs, cats and puppies?

♦ Perform 100 to 120 chest compressions per minute of one-third to one-half of the chest width, with the animal lying on its side.How to hold your hands: For small dogs and cats (less than 22 pounds) compress the chest using the one handed technique by placing the thumb and forefingers around the chest from the underside of the animal behind the front legs. Squeeze the thumb to the forefingers. Begin compressions and push hard and fast.

♦ For medium to large dogs (greater than 22 pounds) place your hands on top of one another and then place them both over the widest part of the chest. Keep your arms straight. Lean over the top of the pet, with the pet’s back facing towards you.

♦ Ventilate intubated dogs and cats at a rate of 10 breaths per minute. For mouth-to-snout ventilation, maintain a compression-to-ventilation ratio of 30-2. Breaths should last 1 second long.

♦ Perform CPR in 2-minute cycles, switching the person performing the compressions with each cycle.
If you are a vet, Administer vasopressors every 3 to 5 minutes during CPR
