With the cardio issues of this breed, I figured a CPR info sheet would be good to share. Never know when it may come in useful.
I agree. All you'd do doing is delaying the inevitable.Since DCM in dobermans is always fatal and considering the suffering they can go thru before death with CHF, I really don't think I would revive Parker were he to drop dead from an arrhythmia. Something to think about for sure.
And if Elka is anything like Jones he "intentionally accidentally" falls in the pool... He's seen a pool many times now, but every I am watching he is cautious and tiptoes around the edge, but then he "missteps" and Ploosh!!! Right into the pool. You can see him plotting it in his head, the first time I thought okay maybe he did misstep but the 7-8th time... ain't fooling meConsidering I'm going on vacation for a week to a house that has a pool, I'd rather know about the CPR than not. (These houses always have a fence between the pool and other areas, but Elka's never been around a pool before, so I want to be prepared for horrible even when I'm sure everything will be fine)
Heimlich maneuver is on there as well, and I'd say the chances of it being useful are greater than not.
