Katy Perry Calls Assistant 'Hero' for Saving Her Dog Nugget's Life by Using CPR
Perry's assistant Tamra used tiny chest compressions to revive Nugget after the dog blacked out for three minutes
The singer, 33, took to Instagram to share some shocking news.
In a series of videos that appear on Perry’s Instagram Stories, she explains how her assistant Tamra recently saved her dog Nugget’s life.
“Nugget jumped and fell off the bed and became unresponsive and I gave her CPR. I pushed on her little chest and blew in her mouth and I brought her back to life,” Tamra explains in one of the clips while holding Nugget close.
Perry’s assistant also shows how she performed the life-saving feat, mimicking chest compressions on the now-alert Nugget.
The tiny dog, who is often confused for Perry’s boyfriend Orlando Bloom’s similar looking pet, blacked out for three minutes, according to Perry, before she came to again. The scary incident occurred in Europe, where Perry is currently on her WITNESS world tour.

Nugget’s famous mom must have brought her to the vet following the incident, because Perry also shared photos of the pooch with a bandage after getting an IV, as well as a shot of Nugget’s X-ray.
