First Aid : Choking

14. Choking:

Choking is recognized by your dog pawing at his mouth, gagging, drooling, coughing, or collapse.

Quickly look into his mouth to see if a foreign object in his throat is visible. If possible, grasp with tweezers or pliers and remove.

If the object remains stuck in his throat, try a sharp blow on back of neck or between his shoulders.

If needed, attempt a Heimlich Maneuver by placing your hands on either side of the dog’s rib cage and apply firm, quick pressure. Repeat 2 – 3 times.

Seek emergency vet care if this fails.
