Hello all, a newbie here, from Ireland :-)

Resuscitating a stillborn foal is something I've been involved in a few times (I work at a stud farm), and a few times it has been successful. Blowing into the nostril, closing the other one, rubbing the heart till you get a response, tickling the nostril with a straw.. Now though I've come across "pumping the chest like bellows", i.e. pressing the foal's ribcage vigorously to entice breathing. I've seen it used, not successfully though.

Is this correct? Wouldn't this disturb the heart? Let alone break a few ribs? Does it really entice breathing or disturb it?

Please, your views and experiences are greatly appreciated.

Susi, welcome. Thanks for the information you shared. I don't have any to offer, but wanted to welcome you and hope someone who has some experience at this will see this and answer your post.

Thank you :-)

I hope somebody will know a little bit more about this - as much as I hope I don't have to come across this problem any more, I'd rather be prepared and know the right thing to do.

with my miniature foals, i blow in both nostrils...and do compressions on the heart if necessary. They're tiny and fraile, but being trained in CPR i find that it's the equivilant of doing CPR on a baby.
