George had a seizure on November 27th 2021 at 5:30AM and an hour later collapsed unresponsive into my lap and wasn't breathing. I screamed his name and tried to make him blink as his eyes were fixed. I thought that was it. Gone. He had gone...
I felt a heartbeat, a very weak one, but a heartbeat. For 5 minutes I was giving him CPR breathing for him and he still had not come around.
I dialed the vet on loud speaker and told them what was happening and they said I needed to get him in ASAP and to carry on doing CPR and to be prepared for his heart to stop which meant I'd need to restart his heart for him with chest compressions.
Another 5 minutes of breathing for him and I was feeling a warm breath coming out his nose, very very slight almost unnoticeable. I got him in the car and we drove to the vets. Giving him a breath every 30 seconds for the 30 minute drive in the snow. His eyes still fixed and his breath not quite there, I felt his pulse get stronger and I saw his eyes twitch. I blew on his face and he shut his eyes. He blinked. I did it again, he blinked! He was responding!
We pulled up to the vets and as I got out the car, the cold air hit us full force and he seemed to come round and he made eye contact with me, just about, but still eye contact. I did my last breath and handed him over to the vet and had an agonising wait whilst he was on oxygen.
The vet gave us choices and we spoke about it. I couldn't give up. He bounces back so quickly. If any dog was going to pull through it was him. At this point it felt like I had been waiting for forever for the door to open. I just wanted to see him.
The vet came in and said he's oka. His heart rate is back to normal, his breathing is normal. He's oka. The relief I can't explain. She said my CPR skills were what he needed and he was given anti convulsion medication and we brought him home. I'm so happy to say that George is doing well so far.
