If your pet is choking and becomes unconscious the steps are similar to conscious choking. Open the mouth and pull the tongue forward and look for the object. If your pet stops breathing at any time you will need to perform rescue breaths. To give rescue breaths, close their mouth with one and cover her nose and mouth with your mouth creating a seal. Give 5 quick breaths and then either back blows or chest thrusts. Repeat these steps. Every two cycles monitor your pet's pulse and if the pulse stops you will need to perform CPR.
