I didn't want to hijack Baileysmommy Sad Story thread, but it did get me to wonder. This past weekend I had to get re-certified for CPR and first aid. During the class infants, and dogs were discussed in reference to CPR, how to breath for them, and choking.

I was wondering how many members out there know how to perform CPR, and give breaths to their fluff if the emergency arose? Thank you for participating in the poll. :)

This is a good reminder that we should all learn how to administer emergency CPR to our fluffs. Thanks for starting this thread.

My intention of this poll was to raise awareness for owners knowledge in case of an emergancy. There are over 7600 registered members here, 48 looked at the thread, and 4 besides myself answered the poll - I truly don't understand. :confused1:

I picked the middle option 'I used to know' because I have a first aid book for pets, that I read when I first got it... and it now lives in H & D's cupboard so I know exactly where it is if I ever need it ..... thanks for the reminder to get it out and READ it again .... its all good & well for me to know its in the cupboard if I need it ... but how about I actually READ it!

I took the pet CPR class at the Red Cross about a year and a half ago. Great class to take. Anyway, I still need to take out the book and notes to refresh what I learned every so often.

Where can we learn to do this? Bonnie has something on her website, but I'm not sure I know how to do it after reading it

I think this is very good to know but it'd help if there was a link to how to do cpr on the thread.

I chose the middle option..I'm not sure if I've forgotten or not how to use it as I have (luckily) never had to use cpr on anyone or thing. Regardless, this is such an important thing to know. Hopefully nobody will need it.

You need to take a class for the CPR it's hands on training, that's why I suggest you contact the Red Cross, or local hospital and inquire where/whom to contact for CPR/First Aid course and go from there for the pet specific course. :)
