A course that teaches people how to perform the kiss of life on dogs has been launched in Chile.

Vet Hugo Acevedo is running first aid courses in Santiago to help dog owners treat their pets in an emergency.

Mr Acevedo told Las Ultimas Noticias: “Dogs are like humans, if they drown they need mouth to mouth which one can do directly or using a pipe: I teach both.”

The courses also teach people how to treat dogs suffering from cuts, broken bones, poisoning and burns.
