[News] Sheriff Deputy Saves a Yorkie
Sarasota, FL - Law enforcement officers get all kinds of training. But no one thought to prepare Charlotte County sheriff's Deputy Casey Roberts for what he encountered Monday afternoon -- a dog left unconscious after a car crash.
Roberts reports that he was driving in his personal car when he came upon a two-car wreck. The human passengers did not appear to have life-threatening injuries. But Oso, a Yorkshire terrier who was apparently hit by an exploding air bag, was barely breathing.
Roberts put the dog in his car and headed for a veterinarian. Then Oso stopped breathing and his eyes rolled back in his head.
Luckily, Roberts remembered an episode of the television show "Rescue 911" where a dog was revived through mouth-to-snout resuscitation. After Roberts' sixth breath into the dog's snout, Oso began to breathe again.
Oso, whose owners live in Naples, was released from the animal clinic on Tuesday morning, Roberts reported.

BRAVO to this man! Not enough people know CPR for dogs, especially little ones. Congratulations on this man's quick thinking. It should be required or at least common sense to be trained in CPR if you have an animal. You know it if you have children human right? Who's to say dogs don't need it to? There are classes where you can be certified in CPR for animals also. I think everyone should know it b/c you never know when something might happen to your baby and that could be the very thing to save it's life.

This is one of my biggest fears. I have been registered and trained in first aid for humans. I was wondering if there is any good books about first aid procedures for animals. I always think the worst for my baby, but in reality it could happen and i would love to know how to help him if anything were to happen.I would feel awful knowing i could have saved my dog if i only knew how to help him.
