Drowning Dog

If your dog is under the water without breathing for too long he will obviously drown, but, if noticed on time, you can rescue him. An animal is not breathing is not necessarily dead, but he is in imminent danger. Nevertheless, the heart can keep on peaking for some time after breeding has stopped and blood has stopped circulating to the blood cells, which for some time conserve a small quantity of oxygen. If the dog is not breathing but is still alive, he is asphyxiated. Meanwhile another person goes to look for a vet, aced the animal to his side with the head also to his side in order to lead the water go out of the lungs and mouth. Some old animals can be held by their front legs and swung from one side to another; you can also do this to the bigger sized ones, but only by the head. Do this only for a few seconds and then immediately apply mouth-to-mouth resuscitation before it is too late. Place the dog on his back and put the head backwards as far as possible, with the jaw all the way up. Remove the collar and leash. Raise the lower jawbone and with your fingers press on both jaws in order to keep the mouth closed. The inferior design of the throat and jawbone must be totally clean, making away for the air to enter without any obstruction. The one who's going to do this operation must take in enough air, open his mouth as much as possible and blow into the nose of the victim. If the air has entered, see if the chest is rising. Quickly withdraw your mouth and listen to the air exit. If you hear a noise, a gurgle or snore, you will know that the the lower jawbone isn't raised enough, which doesn't allow for a good entrance of the air. Repeat the stages of breathing in air 15 to 20 times a minute. Continue until your dog starts breathing normally or until the vet takes over. If the stomach has become swollen due to intake of air, place your hand on the upper part of the womb and firmly yet softly press down so that the air leaves the organ. In puppies, it's convenient that the person's mouth goes on the nasal cavities and the mouth, introducing small quantities of air in the cheeks. The mouth-to-mouth method may not be accepted by some people. In these cases you can put a handkerchief.
