Puppy CPR

– She gave us a bit of a scare, the night she was born. Two AM, we get a knock on the bedroom door wake up from my boyfriend’s daughter and she has told us that, you know, “C’mere, c’mere,” you know, Izzy had let out a yelp
and kinda woken her up and she realized that, you know, something was going on. I go in and check on both of them, realizing one’s moving
and kinda squirming around and you know, obviously seems to be okay and one, little Miri here,
she wasn’t moving at all. So I knew I had to, you know, step in and help and at least try to see if we could get her to wake back up. Picking her up at this point, you know and just kind of stimulating her, you know, giving her some blows and trying to clear her airway up, you know, just looking, you know, dogs’ anatomy is obviously
different than humans’, but I could definitely see where her little rib cage and
everything came together and at that point, she was much smaller and I held her in my
hand and took my thumb and started giving compressions. It’s like I knew I had to try, you know, I wasn’t certain, you
know, that it would work, obviously, I knew it
was different for pets and then for people, but I’m like, you know, the same principles apply, I mean, I think it would have to. It’s hopefully gonna work. At that point, I took her and you know, held her up to my mouth and
gave her a little bit of breath and gave her some more stimulation, you know, kinda patting her rigorously to kinda get some, you know, some response and lo and behold, she started pinking up, her little nose, you know and mouth turned really, really pink and I saw even her toes pinked up and you know, a little miracle happened and she started breathing on her own and we, you know, tried to warm her up and get towels and kinda keep her doing well.
