Do You Know What to Do if Your Cat or Dog is Choking? Do You Know How to Perform CPR on Your Pet in an Emergency?


I hope you never have to use this, but this information is worth reading. Most of the time when we think about choking or cpr, we think about this happening to a person. However, it can happen to your pet. Would you know what to do in an emergency in the middle of the night if your pet was choking or needed cpr?
