Saving your pet with CPR

Can you perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on your dog or cat? This is every pet parent’s nightmare: to be in a frozen moment where you would need to save your pet’s life with CPR. As they say, it never hurts to be prepared. Learning pet CPR is just like training on adult and child CPR with the only difference in techniques attributing to the shape of the animal’s chest – and mouth, of course. 

Without much ado, let’s first knowwhen to administer and not administer CPR. 

Well, cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a procedure primarily designed to restart the heart and lungs. Therefore, your pet only qualifies for CPR if they have no pulse and they’re not breathing. To confirm these two criteria,

  1. Check for visible signs of rising and falling of your pet’s chest. As you do this, take a good peek at their gums. Bluish, gray, pale, or white gums indicate poor circulation of oxygen. Also, the pupils tend to dilate when your pet suffers cardiovascular distress.
  2. Feel the femoral artery on the inside of the hind leg to find a pulse. Alternatively, you can feel their heartbeat, if there’s one, behind the left elbow of the front leg. 

If your pet is unresponsive, that is, he is not breathing and has no pulse, then you can proceed to administer chest compressions. Otherwise, you risk injuring your pet. 

Start chest compressions. 

Gently lay your dog or cat on its right side and place your hand over the ribs, right where the elbow touches the chest. Intertwine your fingers, palm down, and begin compressions. I can hardly stress this enough, do not give compressions if you feel a pulse.

Take care not to injure your pet by pressing too hard. If your pet is below 30 pounds, half-to-one-inch compression is enough but if they are above 30 pounds, go up to 3inches. Give 30 compressions and make sure the chest recoils before the next compression. However, if you panic and can’t recall, our vetsend veterinarians are just a call away to guide you through the procedure. 

Give rescue breaths

For medium to large dogs, gently close their mouth and cover their nose with your mouth. Blow in the air until you see the chest rising. For smaller dogs and cats, cover their nose and mouth with your mouth. Do it twice.

Continue CPR

After each cycle, check for a pulse and breathing – if still unresponsive, repeat CPR until you get professional help.

How to Hold and Throw a Dart in Dart Game?

There are several ways to hold or grip the dart. You need to know the ways along with the basic details on how the dart should be positioned and released.

The use of a soft tip dartboard makes it easier to relax your throw. If you have steel tip darts, you need to stay aware of the strength you are using for a throw, as it can break the board. Overall, you need to avoid using a lot of strength to throw.

Position Dart Tip Properly

Another basic concept for a successful throw is to position the dart tip appropriately before throwing. The right technique to position the dart point involves the theory of mathematics and physics. The theory is of the parabolic curve, which says that you can reveal a curve while properly analysing an apparently straight line. It can be applied to any object thrown in the air. According to the theory, you need to make sure that the dart is in the upward direction when you grip and throw.
