How to give your puppy CPR (Infographic)
Today’s post comes from guest blogger Hannah Davis. The information contained could save your dog’s life.
Bringing a new furry friend into your home is always a special time, but obtaining a puppy means that you’ve got to be prepared to be responsible for its well-being.
Just like with human beings, basic first aid knowledge and CPR techniques could save its life in the event of an illness or injury. Surprisingly enough, only about 20 percent of pet owners have a basic pet first aid kit in their home.
Puppies are active, curious creatures that often sustain injuries due to mischievous behavior. Their human companions should know appropriate actions to take in the event that their little ball of furry fun bites off more than it can chew and ends up choking on the furniture.
Performing CPR on a puppy is not complicated, but there are some important differences in providing life-saving measures to a puppy than to a human being or even to an adult dog. Learn about proper puppy CPR techniques in this educational infographic.
