Everyone needs to see this. Pet CPR.

Fri Jun 22, 2012, 1:48 AM




Reposting this from Tumblr, cause I feel it's important that as many people as possible sees this and knows how to do this.  Please spread the word! I wanna encourage everyone to repost this in their journals.

Pet CPR is not nearly as common knowledge as it should be. You may think you'll never actually need to know how to do this. But I can tell you; it happens. Cause it happened to me.


This is a picture of my late dog, a great dane named Tiger. (cropped out my mom who's in the picture.)  Tiger died at the age of only 2, of a heart attack (heart flaw), on my living room floor one day when I was alone home 3 years ago.
My mother, who is a nurse assistant had literally left the house only 10 minutes previously to go shopping. One minute, my happy boy was his fine, happy, laid back self. The next thing I know, he's laying unresponsive on the floor. And I panic.
I called my mom who instructed me on how to do CPR over the phone while she was hurrying home. But I was too late.
It was one of the most traumatic experiences of my life. To have a happy healthy dog one moment, and the next, he's dead. It was very hard for me and it took me a long time to get over. But I am alright now.
So I'm posting this, so that if anyone ever has to go through what I went through, they won't feel as hopeless as I felt. And they'll have a chance of saving their pet.

So please - spread the word! You never know who might need this.

What a terrible experience for one to have.

This post is much appreciated, and I certainly hope not many will ever need this.
But if they do, hopefully they will have sen this, and remembered it.

Thank you for posting this, I agree that everyone should know how to do these things. Im so sorry about tiger, I love great Danes but sadly they are prone to things like that because of their massive size...their lifespans are short but 2...thats wayy to young for such a gorgeous dane to pass away.. at least his passing can help others learn. <3

I go on YouTube sometimes, but for art I go on here.

Seems a bit silly to look for artwork on a video website.

I'm really sorry about your dog :'c I shall repost this in a journal,
even though I might not need it [as I can't have a dog, although
could possibly get a cat].

Pet CPR is definitely something worth learning. We had to go over it when I was doing my Animal Care course a couple of years back, from newly born puppies and kittens up to horses (which unfortunately is not as effective, as you can imagine one horse breath is like 3 human breaths and if you need to do compressions you basically have to jump on their side :E ).

My dog choked on a chicken nugget I dropped on the floor. I had to do the helimic on him. I did it without knowing. I too agree It is good to know Animal CPR.

I saw this last night on tumblr and the first thing I did was grab my brother and we both went over it together. I have four dogs, and two of them are 13 years old.

I'm really sorry to hear about what happened to your Tiger, may he rest in peace <3

It's so sad that your dog died then. :( But it's okay that you are okay now.
Can I copy this journal in half? To "I wanna encourage everyone to repost this in their journals.", ok?

Tiger <3 I still miss that dog i have a drawing of him that utterly failed at ;; i remember the day he passed ,you where so distraught and i didn't know how to react ,i was pretty shocked too D:
i know nothing about CPR even for a human however even if i read this im unsure i will remember it when i need to :( my mind goes into panic mode and i normally just freak out rather than thinking on what to do to help OTL.
