Start CPR within 12 seconds if you notice the pet is not breathing. Chest compressions and breaths.
CPR numbers are cycles of 30 compressions to 2 breaths with a depth of compression of 1/3 to 1/2 the width of the pet's chest.
The goal is 100 plus compressions each minute for a total of two minutes and then reassess with a femoral pulse check. Effective compressions are delivered hard and fast. Do not lean into the pet when performing compressions.
Minimize interruption as the heart loses its prime very quickly.
The skills of pet CPR are best learned in a hands-on training.
