The Heimlich Maneuver


We pretty much all know how to do the Heimlich Maneuver on people but did you know you should learn to do it for your dog? I would have lost my little Mickey this afternoon if I hadn't learned to do this prior to needing it. I was sitting at the table wiring tiny beads when I heard something fall nearby. I turned around and found Mickey laying on the floor, panicking, unable to breathe at all, turning blue, and evidently choking on something. After being unable to feel anything in his throat, I did the Heimlich on him several times and he was able to start breathing again. For once, I was glad I played hookie from Curves. Don't wait! Learn to do this simple move here.
