Resuscitation of an animal that has stopped breathing but still has a heartbeat is more likely to succeed than on an animal that is not breathing and has no heartbeat. Animals that survive a cardiopulmonary arrest and have been successfully resuscitated (CPR) are extremely critical and unstable. Management of the post-arrest patient requires vigilant monitoring and the technical expertise of dedicated critical care personnel.
This estimate is for the initial CPR. An estimate for further care will be provided to you as your pet stabilizes. Typical CPR CRITICAL CARE for the first 24-48 hours post arrest is estimated to be $1500-$3500 dependent on your pet’s injury or condition.
