Science blog reported new guidelines for pet CPR that every fur family should be aware of.
- Perform 100-120 chest compressions per minute of one-third to one-half of the chest width, with the animal lying on its side.
- Ventilate intubated dogs and cats at a rate of 10 breaths per minute, or at a compression to ventilation ratio of 30 to 2 for mouth-to-snout ventilation.
- Perform CPR in 2-minute cycles, switching the “compressor” each cycle.
- Administer vasopressors every 3–5 minutes during CPR.
