Pet CPR

"He wasn't breathing so he did chest compression's on him," says Kim Gray a dog owner. Buddy, the dog, survived because a passerby knew CPR.

That's the latest trend among dog walkers and pet sitters...taking a four-hour course in CPR for pets. "We teach you to prevent, prepare for and to respond for pet emergencies," says Alice Wadley, a pet CPR instructor.

It's not a replacement for a veterinarian, but the skills learned can be used in the critical first few minutes of an animal emergency. The $60 class includes a take home first aid kit and a reference book.
