How to Save a Choking Cat


Step 6e: Alternately (after 30 seconds), hold the cat’s mouth and lips closed and blow firmly into its nostrils. Blow for three seconds, take a deep breath, and repeat until you feel resistance or see the chest rise. Repeat this 10 to 20 times per minute.
Step 6f: After one minute, stop. Look at the chest for breathing movement and feel for the cat’s heartbeat by placing your fingers about one inch behind the cat’s elbow and in the center of his or her chest.
Step 6g: If the cat’s heart is still not beating, continue CPR. If the heart starts beating, but the cat is still not breathing, return to Step 5b to continue artificial respiration.
Step 7: Transport the cat to the veterinarian immediately. CPR or artificial respiration should be continued on the way or until the cat is breathing and its heart is beating without assistance.

  1. I have stressfully looking for cpr for a cat. My cat suffocated because of some type of condition. It happened all the time. But THIS time it was so bad not even the shots would work. Her whole throat and don't know how further in was swollen. I was forced to watch Her die in distress !!! I tried cpr but probably not long enough. I felt helpless. One of the saddest days of my life. (Tears)
