What to do if your dog is in shock


If your dog is unconscious and breathing, the best position to put them in is the recovery position for animals. The recovery position for a
dog is lying on their right hand side with their head extended back, as Boo’s demonstrating here. We keep the airway open and ideally, if you’re worried
about them going into shock, you would elevate their bottom slightly, which we may or may not
be able to show with Boo. But ideally we just elevate
their bottom slightly so that the blood will
then drain further down to their head, which will help. The reason you’re putting a blanket under is so that they don’t fold up as they go. And again, if you’re worried
about them going into shock, it’s important to keep them warm, so if you’ve got some
sort of a foil blanket You would then pop that over her as well. And transport her to the
vet as quickly as you can.
