Ask the Vet


Dear Dr. Schelling,

The other day my cat slipped and fell down off my tall bureau and was unconscious for several seconds. I felt completely panicked, and had no idea what to do. Luckily she perked right up on her own and the vet said she was fine. But next time I want to be prepared. Is there CPR for cats?

Dear Taylor,

That sounds like a scary situation with a happy ending. CPR can indeed be performed on cats, and it’s a great skill to learn now, BEFORE a crisis occurs. CPR is used to restore life to an animal (or human) whose breathing or heartbeat has stopped. Sounds like your cat recovered on her own but others aren’t so lucky. CPR can literally mean the difference between life and death.
