Dog care information

This simple emergency tip has resuscitated dogs that have been pronounced clinically dead. If your dog suffers a seizure or a traumatic injury and loses consciousness, this technique could save his life, because you can use it to keep your dog alive until you reach help.

Simple emergency instructions:

1) Gently rest one hand on your dog’s chest.

2) With your other hand, place a finger just above your dog’s upper lip, halfway between his nose and mouth.

3) Gently apply about 2 pounds of pressure for approximately 30 seconds. It should help your dog regain consciousness.
