Additional Pet Information
CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)/DNR (Do Not Resuscitate)
To allow for optimal treatment of your pet(s), all patients hospitalized at Alpenglow Veterinary Specialty + Emergency Center are assigned a CPR code. This code enables AVSEC to carry out your wishes if it becomes necessary during or following an emergency.
CPR is used to attempt to restore heart rhythm and breathing.
A DNR tells the veterinary care team not to give CPR if your pet’s heart and/or breathing stop.
CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) is a combination of chest compressions and rescue breathing given to a pet whose heart has stopped beating and/or has stopped breathing.
CPR may include the following:
- Manual chest compressions (performed using the hands)
- Defibrillation (a brief electric shock applied to the chest to restore a normal heart rhythm)
- The use of drugs to stimulate the heart
- Insertion of breathing tube down the throat into the lungs
Alpenglow VSEC is committed to providing high-level care at a reasonable cost, but the costs of veterinary treatment are often stressful and unexpected. Alpenglow Animal Critical Care + Emergency (AACCE) partners with a foundation called the Lady Bug Fund to ease the strain on our clients experiencing financial hardship in a pet emergency. If you would like to make a donation to the Lady Bug Fund to help a community member in need, please inform us, and one of our client care members will provide you with information on how, and where to donate.
