Learn CPR for Dogs

It is so important that you learn the how to perform CPR on your Miniature Schnauzer. By practicing and knowing the steps, you will hopefully be able to remain calm and concentrate on the task at hand which could save your Schnauzer's life.

CPR for Dogs

  1. Open your dog's mouth and inspect for any obstructions. Remove any obstruction to clear airway. If your dog does not begin breathing continue to the next step...
  2. Extend neck and place your mouth around your dog's nose and mouth and gently blow 5 rescue breaths allowing the chest to expand and expel each time.
  3. If your dog does not begin breathing continue to the next step...
  4. With your Schnauzer lying on his right side begin compressions on the side of the rib cage. Compress the chest 15 times followed by 2 rescue breaths.
  5. Continue alternating between chest compressions and rescue breaths until your Schnauzer responds and begins breathing on his own.

Halloween Pet Safety

Halloween is just a few days away, so remember:

  1. Be sure your Schnauzer is wearing ID with current info.
  2. Keep all decorations out of your pets reach. Ingesting any parts of decorations could cause gastrointestinal upset or intestinal blockage in your dog.
  3. Keep your Miniature Schnauzer indoors during the trick-or-treat hours.
  4. If your Schnauzer is going to wear a costume make sure it is comfortable and not binding. If he is not comfortable wearing a costume, don’t force him.
  5. Never share your Halloween candy with your Schnauzer. Especially chocolate and sugar-free candy, both of which can be lethal to dogs, if ingested.

Schnitzel Saves the Day

Jim, from Sierra Vista Arizona is thankful for his 3 year Miniature Schnauzer Schnitzel. It seems this little girl pup went into action when she noticed a rattlesnake slivering into the backyard of their family home.

Luckily Schnitzel somehow knew not to get too close to this ominous looking creature and was not bitten. Instead she just continued to bark until Jim came out to see what the fuss was all about. Schnitzel was alerting her owner that danger in the form of a Cochise rattlesnake was approaching. Jim immediately got Schnitzel inside and contacted the proper authorities to come out and remove the venomous snake.

Thank goodness no one was hurt or injured. Since then, Jim has had his yard snake-proofed so it never happens again and as for his brave little Mini Schnauzer Schnitzel... well, she continues to watch over her and protect her family.

Wikipedia Rattlesnake Info
Interesting rattlesnake info: For anyone living or visiting areas like Cochise County in Arizona, note that rattlesnake season spans throughout early spring well into the summer months, seeing its height in May and June, which is the mating season.

If you have an interesting or funny short story about your Miniature Schnauzer that you would like to submit for a future issue of the Schnauzer Scoop, please submit it to us by filling out a contact form.

Thanks to Jim and to his brave little Mini Schnauzer, Schnitzel for sharing their story.
