The GOLD STANDARD IN rehabilitation treatments and wellness programmes for dogs

Alternative CPR methodologies

Small Dogs

For smaller dogs you can use an alternative method by placing the palm of one of your hands over the dog’s chest and the other hand around the back of and underneath the dog.

Barrel shaped chest breeds

For barrel shaped chest breeds you can lay the dog on its back and undertake compressions as previously described – depressing the chest by a third of a half of it’s width.
