CPR Basics for Cats and Dogs

The University of Washington School of Medicine has published the following information as a free public service. It provides a basic, high-level overview on how CPR is administered to a dog or a cat.

Dr. Mickey Eisenberg at U of W graciously gave us permission to republish the content from their site,

The University of Washington has a wonderfully extensive site on CPR in general that you can access here, complete with video demonstrations, information on choking victims, and a link to a free mobile training app.

But as informative as all this content is, they would like to caution you:

It can never replace real CPR or First Aid training. 

We join the University of Washington in urging you to try to attend a CPR training course in your community so that you're properly equipped to help save a life - animal or human.
