Greensboro, NC -- You may know how to perform CPR on a person but could you perform it on your pet if you needed to?
Shirley Sanders from the American Red Cross joined us live on the Good Morning Show to show us the basics of pet CPR.
She says it's similar to human CPR in that it involves compressions and breaths. Our brief overview included where to put your hands on either a cat or dog and the number of compressions and breaths.
Shirley says you should treat your pet like any other member of the family and keep a first aid kid with bandages and antiseptic along emergency numbers and a photo.
