Golden Dog Blog

Welcome to my new "updated" website. I have created this for my future and past customers in order that they would be able to communicate with me and other people who have purchased my dogs. For some time I have wanted a way to communicate with everyone about things like "bad" dog foods, up-to-date info on health or anything that I feel you might like to know. Hopefully this will help and it will also offer you an opportunity to communicate with others who have purchased puppies from me. An example would be if you wanted to get all the puppies from the same litter together and have a reunion...or the same Bonnie who just turned 15 in November. I will be posting updates from time to time so please take time to read this. If you have any questions let me always, if you need to talk to me please email me directly at or call me at 248 626 2243.. Thanks! Micki

How To Perform CPR On A Dog

Tagged in: Untagged 


With pets increasingly being treated like a member of the family, many owners are learning emergency techniques like CPR to keep their pet alive before bringing it to a veterinarian
If there is no breathing and no pulse begin CPR immediately.

  • Check For Breathing And Pulse – Check pulse using middle and index finger below the wrist, inner thigh (femoral artery), below the ankle or where left elbow touches the chest.
  • Look For Other Warning Signs
  • Gums and lips will appear gray colored
  • Pupils will be dilated and not responsive to light
  • If Not Breathing, Give Breath To Animal
  • Cats And Smal Dogs – Place your mouth over its nose and mouth to blow air in.
  • Medium-Large Dogs – Place your mouth over its nose to blow air in.
  • Heimlich Manuever – If breath won’t go in, airway may be blocked. Turn dog upside down, with its back against your chest.  Wrap your arms around the dog and clasp your arms around the dog and clasp your hand together just below its rib cage (since you’re holding the dog upside down, it’s above the rib cage, in the abdomen).  Using both arms, give five sharp thrusts to the abdomen.  Then check its mouth or airway for object.  If you see it remove it and give 2 more rescue breaths.
  • Start Compression If No Pulse – Lay animal on right side and place hands over ribs where its elbow touches the chest.  Begin compressions.  Do not give compressions if dog has a pulse.
  • Repeat Procedure
  • Check pulse after 1 minute and then after every few minutes.
  • Continue giving CPR until the animal has a pulse and is breathing.
  • Stop CPR after 20 minutes

So there you go, some basic instructions on dog CPR. Hopefully you never have to perform CPR on a dog, but just in case you now know a little bit about how it’s done or at least you can look back an find this resource on the Puppy In Training blog.
