For those pet parents and pet professionals who have ever taken a pet CPR course from a Certified Pet Tech Instructor, this should be a familiar phrase. For those who haven’t . . . well . . . quite frankly you should.
It is a commonly known fact that when a human falls ill, their chances of survival greatly increase when they receive first responder care before the EMS arrive. the same is true for our feline and canine companions. While many of the techniques are similar to human CPR, these are distinct differences that must be considered. For example, the Heimlich maneuver used to successfully help a human choking victim will actually do very little for your dog or cat. Additionally, if the responder gets hurt in the process of trying to help a wounded animal, guess who EMS will have to treat first, regardless of severity? That’s right. The responder. And all the while the animal’s condition can deteriorate.
