Firefighters Resuscitate Choking Dachshund

International Fire Fighting News reports on how a wiener dog was brought back from the brink of death:

Flynn said he’d never learned how to resuscitate a choking dog, but he applied the same techniques that he uses on infants.

He and other firefighters thumped the dog on the back, hoping to dislodge the meat. They also performed the Heimlich maneuver repeatedly.

When that didn’t work, Flynn put his mouth over the dog’s tiny nose and tried to force air into his lungs.

“The fourth time I did it, I felt the air go into his lungs,” he said.

It definitely was a much closer call than the Scottie Newsrecent throat obstruction.
