According to the illustration, when a crisis comes to a pet, first check breathing and pulse. You can check the pulse of the pet by hitting the forefinger and middle finger on the part of the pet's front leg's wrist, under the hind leg, under the ankle (femoral artery), and the left elbow hit the chest.

If you have a pulse but you are not breathing, artificial respiration is necessary. In the case of small dogs and cats, blow air into the human mouth with the pet's nose and mouth blended. In the case of middle- and large-size dogs, pet air is blown in with only the pet's nose in the mouth of a human being. Besides, it is necessary to confirm that the colors of the gums and lips are not gray or whether the pupil reacts to light.

If something comes out it will be removed and artificial respiration will be done twice more.

The criteria for pressing each pet's size are as follows. The depth of pushing when pressing a cat / small dog (13.6 kg or less) is about 1.3 cm ~ 2.5 cm, and the number of pressing times is 5 times per artificial respiration. Medium to large dogs (13.6 kg to 40.8 kg) are pressed when pressed, 2.5 cm to 7 cm depth, five times per artificial respiration. Compression of a super-large dog (40.8 kg or more) is also about 2.5 cm to 7 cm, and the number of times of compression is ten times for each artificial respiration. If pressure and artificial respiration continue for 20 minutes and there is no reaction, we will stop CPR.
