Dog news: Miracle as husky makes full recovery after being brought ‘back to life’ | Nature | News
Heidi, the husky, collapsed at home on Mother’s Day and couldn’t move when she gasped for breath. When her owner Rachel Armstrong came to the vets, Heidi had no pulse and her breathing had stopped. Ms. Armstrong desperately called for help and luckily a senior veterinarian heard before rushing out of the clinic.
The vet performed CPR on Heidi when she was lifeless in the car.
She put pressure on Heidi’s chest to try to restart her heart.
After every set and as Heidi’s owner got more and more distressed, there was still no heartbeat.
But determined not to give up, the vet tried again, and this time it worked with a weak heartbeat.
The vet took the 32 kg dog in his arms and brought her to the practice for further treatment.

“We’re still not entirely sure what caused Heidi’s breakdown in the first place, and she’ll have more tests to go through.
“I was warned that there was a high likelihood of potential brain damage for Heidi because her brain was without oxygen – but luckily that didn’t happen.
“The main thing is that she is fine and that’s because of the vets who have done such a great job bringing Heidi back to life.”
The vet who saved Heidi, Susana Jauregui, who works for Vets Now in Hull, said: “We are very happy that Heidi has fully recovered from her ordeal.
“It was one of the most dramatic days of my career – and it’s not a day I’ll soon forget.”
