Almost lost this #pup just now. Its body was stiff and she was not breathing, and she was away from the rest of the litter. When I picked her up, she was cold. She looked like she was dying. Her tongue went white and she began sticking the tongue out. It was obviously hypothermia. Her body was very cold. Suddenly, there was not a single movement. She had #died .
Seeing her turning pale like that, I immediately administered #CPR on the puppy. I pumped her little heart (with lungs facing down, and only turning her up when administering breath), counting 1, 2, 3.... until 30. Then, I gave her some breaths through her mouth.
I repeated the process five to six times before I noticed some tiny movement around her mouth area. I continued and the movement of her abdomen started to show breathing. She was gasping for breath. I continued until she no longer showed signs of #choking .
Then, I immediately wrapped her in a towel to keep her warm, putting her close to my body to raise her temperature. I used the hair dryer to warm a thick cloth and wrapped her with it. I keep stroking her fragile body and paws to increase her body temperature. I also kept exhaling with my mouth onto her, hoping the warm breaths could also help.
It was not easy because as I was doing all these, Cathy kept jumping up and barking, obviously in distress about the entire situation, wondering how her baby is. As I was administering CPR with my hands in the air, I had to keep walking around making sure Cathy didn't pull her baby away.
The #puppy lived. This shows how IMPORTANT First Aid knowledge is. The General #Medical#Training I went through with #Emirates in #Dubai back then was not a waste. #FIRSTAID knowledge IS important. You never know when you'll need it!
