Hello Everybuddy:

Thanks for the good turnout for our first Thunder Support Group.  We will meet the second Saturday of the month, for June and July.

Monica Segal, Canine Nutritionist sent this very valuable CPR poster along in todays mail.  She said that it had been posted on Facebook, but in case you might not see it there, here it is:

CPR For Dogs and Cats
After posting this on Facebook and watching it be shared over and over again, I received a private message that the information had actually saved a dog about one week later. That's what  leads me to share it with you and ask you to pass it on to others. The more people who see this the greater the chances that some dog or cat somewhere is going to be saved.

Canine CPR

Monica is highly respected in her field, and has a web site at http://www.monicasegal.com/  .  This poster is going up on the wall, after I try the poses with Stella, i.e. find pulse, where to compress, etc., just so I'm not a stranger to what I need to do.

Cheers to all,

Jo, Stella and Zkhat


  1. That's really useful.
    Thank you Jo.
    Cheers, Gail.
    PS My boss was telling me last week how she tried CPR on her Labrador after he fell over some castle ramparts while on holiday in the west of Scotland last week, but sadly to no avail as the dog, Flake, had a broken neck. My poor boss (a lovely woman) is devastated. It didn't seem appropriate to ask her about the mechanics of giving CPR to a dog, but I had been wondering.

  2. i hope i never have to use it, but...

  3. Very helpful information, Stella. Phantom says there are more storms possible this week, but we will all try to reassure him - we know that meeting has to have helped.

  5. That be very useful, thanks girls for posting. Though i hope Mum never needs to know it!

  6. Momma has a copy of this in the first aid kit and taped next to the calendar in the kitchen! Thanks for sharing what could be a life saver.

  7. Good to know! Thanks for sharing the info, Jo and Stella.

  8. Great information! I hope I don't have to use this ...but I am going to print it out just in case!

    Your pal, Pip

    P.S.: Love your idea about having my very own apartment on the first floor. This is brilliant and I am going to get my assistant started on it this weekend.

  9. We too hope we never have to use it too. Somehow we missed this post. Probably as our computer is acting up and blogger is not helping. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  10. That's really great!
