Have you ever preformed CPR on a pet?

Would you be willing to preform CPR on an animal?

Since I raise goats, I've preformed CPR on newborn kids, and saved them. Lambs too.

I personally would rather perform CPR on an animal (even one gloppy with the birth "jelly.") than I would another human I'm not related too.

    when i was about ten years old i was reading a lot of first aid books and when my hamster (his name was pearl) died i revived him 3 times i couldn't help him the fourth time i tried though!

    at least he didn't die alone

    I did CPR on a dummy dog last week. If you did it correctly there was a green light, if you did it incorrectly it was red.

    Since I'm training to be a vet tech, I kinda have to be willing to perform CPR as it will be part of my job... No choice there really!

    I took a pet CPR class, but I've never used it on a real animal.

    I have only done it on people but would if necessary on an animal. Well

    unless it was an ape or something gross.

    I've never had to do it (knock on wood), but I would in a heartbeat if I had to in order to save one of my animals.
