How to Perform the Dog Heimlich Maneuver
Apr 11, 2016 - 3:48 PM - by Petguide.com

Dogs can choke on many things: food, toys, or random objects that look edible. In case of an emergency, do you know how to perform the dog Heimlich Maneuver?

For many people, if someone near them started choking, they wouldnít hesitate to take action and administer the Heimlich maneuver. But what do you do when a dog starts choking? Thereís a real possibility that it could happen to you at some point of your poochís life. There is such a thing the dog Heimlich maneuver; it just takes a slightly different approach than you would have for a human.

If you suspect that your dog is choking, the first thing you need to do is remain calm Ė becoming hysterical will not help anyone. In fact, dogs can sense what their owners are feeling and if you become worried and upset, your dog will too and that will just make matters worse. The next step is to confirm that he is choking and to attempt to remove the object by hand.

Carefully approach your dog and speak to him slowly in a soothing voice. Even if your dog has never bit anyone in his life, he might snap if he feels threatened or afraid. Place one hand on top and one hand on the underside of your dogís muzzle and gently open his mouth Ė look inside to see if you can see something blocking your dogís airway. If you see an object, try to remove it by hand, being careful not to let your dog bite you. If you cannot see the object or if you cannot reach it, you may need to administer the Heimlich maneuver on your dog.

Terminally Ill Patients Able to Keep Pets Thanks to Pet Peace of Mind
Mar 30, 2016 - 5:39 PM - by Petguide.com

When you or someone you know is diagnosed with an illness, itís absolutely devastating. Itís worse when there can nothing to be done to extend their life, but only to make them more comfortable as the days go by. Unfortunately, diseases such as cancer can slowly make a personís life more and more challenging, making it difficult to not only take care of oneself, but also the pets that rely on you for survival.

Take Donna Sarner for instance. She is a Cornerstone Hospice patient who was diagnosed with late-stage cancer, which causes her a great amount of pain and limits her physical movements. This makes going outside to feed her cats and dogs difficult, and taking them to veterinary appointments nearly impossible.

Many people in this kind of situation arrange for their pets to be rehomed by a friend or family member, or surrender them to a shelter. But for Donna, separating her from her pets is definitely not part of the plan yet and so, she got some much-needed help from the folks at Pet Peace of Mind.

Based out of Salem, Oregon, Pet Peace of Mind is a volunteer program at Cornerstone Hospice that has helped thousands of patients care for their furry children as they go through their end-of-life journey. Kristine Murtz is the volunteer services manager and Pet Peace of Mind program coordinator at Cornerstone Hospice. She helps Donna in her home by assisting her feed and take care of the animals in her home, including her four large dogs who absolutely shower her with unbridled love and affection.

The Pet Peace of Mind program not only helps Donna care for her animals by delivering food and transporting the animals to the vet when they need it, but they also arranged to have the cats spayed, neutered and vaccinated. Talk about a helping hand when you need one!

Situations such as Donnaís are what makes these programs so valuable and important to the community it serves, especially if the person being helped doesnít have any immediate family or friends to help out. To see how you can help, be sure to visit Pet Peace of Mindís website.
