Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine has created an online CPR course that is open to anyone and takes about one hour to complete. The fee is $45.00.
In the Pet CPR Course, you will learn how to determine if your pet needs CPR, how to do chest compressions to get blood flowing and to do mouth to snout ventilation to get oxygen into the blood while you’re transporting your pet to the vet.
Pet CPR is authored by Daniel J. Fletcher, PhD, DVM, DACVECC, Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine’s Associate Professor of Emergency and Critical Care. Dr. Fletcher is also co-chair of the RECOVER Initiative, which published the first evidence-based veterinary CPR guidelines in 2012, and has taught CPR courses all over the world.
I believe CPR is an essential skill every pet owner should have. It could make the difference between life and death for your furry kid.
