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.
Key Messages:
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.
About CPR
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.
