    ** If Your Cat {or Pet} Was Choking **

    Would you be willing to do mouth to mouth CPR.. This was a question on Animal Planet this weekend when a Cop did mouth to mouth on his K-9 partner.. Well Yes I would do mouth to mouth CPR on my babies or any ones I saw in danger of breathing in a Heart Beat with no questions ask..

    I would - but for choking, is there a "kitty Heimlich"?

    actually China (my black white Siberian) is a CPR dog..... she almost died on me when 4-5 months.....

    I had to do anything humanely possible to bring her back(heimlich/shake/CPR) ..... and she came back!!
    she was already blue, pupils gone huge and unactive.... body completely loose.... she had just quit trying.....

    but I was there fo her no matter what......

    and what did the choke on?..... on food...... she was eating as usual...... and WHAM!!..... she did used to gobble up, not she is a bit slower but still a gobbler.....

    so my answer is yes!!

    No thought about it, yes. I had to take a pet first aid class for work. So if I have to do it to strange dogs, of course I am going to save my own pets life.
    Thanks so much Ashley for the siggy!

    MOST DEFINATELY...

    I had to perform CPR on a rabbit I had in my late teens. He actually had a heart attack from fear ( no choking) and stopped breathing. He was about 3 months old. I gave him CPR and he made it.

    I could not live with myself if I did not try absolutely everything for my babies.

    I think anuone of us here would without a thought. We see them as part of our family and that is all there is to it!

    Absolutely.... 100% YES! Of course I would, without even thinking about it!

    Years ago, I had a hamster.... Theodore. He lived to be 9 years old! Really! And when he was 7, he must have had a heart attack of something. I did CPR on his widdle heart, and he came back to life and lived another few years!

    By the way... that police officer and his partner, then live about an hour north of me, in Ligonier Indiana! Very cool that he is getting all this notoriety! But then, I think that all of us on here would do the same thing! After all, they ARE our babies!

    I would do it for any dog or cat, not just my own!

    Squeak was using my toothbrush last week, so I don't think I'd be too grossed out by it.

    You know what? I don't know how I would give CPR to an animal. Is there a Heimlich maneuver for a choking animal? I would definitely try, though.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!

    Sure I would.
    I am happy to see that for one time only one option in the poll is chosen

    I would but if it wasn't my cat, I'd be nervous about it. To say that a cat's or a dog's mouth is cleaner than a human's is, in my opinion, a bit of a stretch. Their tongues are not only their wash cloths but their toilet paper, too. It's doubtful that we can contract much from a cat or a dog and vice versa but if it's bacterial, for instance, if a cat killed something and later contracted salmonella, we might be able to contract it as well. My cats, however, are indoor cats, so I'd feel pretty safe about it.
    Blessings,
    Mary

    There is a variation of the Heimlich maneuver for a choking dog or cat. I've seen demonstrations but don't know the exact steps. I think the pressure is applied to the side of the animal's chest rather than straight down on it, though I'm not sure.

    I just Googled "cat dog first aid heimlich maneuver" and got loads of listings, so the information is not hard to find.
