Knowing how to perform CPR in an emergency can mean the difference between life and death. But, CPR on puppies is quite different than how it is performed on people and even on adult dogs. Because of a puppy’s tiny size and delicate bone structure, Carrington College’s Veterinary Tech Program created the infographic below.
Only 20% of dog owners have a Dog First Aid Kit on hand. Even fewer are trained to give CPR. As dog owners, many of us would do anything to protect our dogs, or save their lives in an emergency. Being prepared is the first step!

I once had a Border Collie/Labrador hybrid, and when she had puppies, one of them was born without a heartbeat and no sign that she was breathing.
What my dad did at the time probably saved the puppy’s life – he performed CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation), in much the same way you’d try and revive a human who wasn’t breathing.
