How to Give Dog Artificial Respiration Breathing - Dog CPR
If the dog can't breath, oxygen going to the brain will deteriorate, and this will be irreversible damage. For artificial breathing, be sure the tongue won't obstruct the access to the respiratory channel in the back part of the mouth, pulling it out. Then, with the dog lying over his right side, press softly and repeatedly with both hands over the thorax at intervals of five to ten seconds. If the thorax wall has been perforated due to a deep wound, for example, the normal pressure gradient will be lost and you'll have to look for a different method. Keep the dog's mouth firmly closed, inflate the nose with some seconds of interval between each breathing. At the same time check his heartbeat. Dog CPR or Direct resuscitation mouth to mouth is of limited value.
